Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off in two weeks. Accordingly, we are now in the high season of next-generation iPhone rumors. People are guessing about what it would bring and when it would come out. We’ve weeded through all the iPhone 5 rumors and picked some that are most likely to be true, let’s take a trip through the blizzard of rumors to see if we can tease any useful information out from these rumors and speculation.
iPhone 5 schematic shows 4-inch display, repositioned FaceTime camera
Schematic of the rumored next generation iPhone with a 4-inch screen appears to have been leaked to various blogs like iLab and Cydia Blog. The schematic does not show an exact total height for the part in question, but calculations based on pixel counts and the known height of the display mask area suggest that the overall height of the part is roughly 122 mm, approximately 7 mm taller than the overall height of the iPhone 4S.
Black and white metal iPhone 5 backs
Pictures claiming to show the back panel of an unreleased iPhone suggest Apple’s next-generation handset could feature an aluminum back, a new, smaller dock connector, and a relocated headphone jack. The significant redesign also features a much smaller dock connector on the bottom of the device. It also shows a headphone jack that has been relocated to the bottom of the handset.
However, the purported next-generation iPhone component also features a suspicious font used to display the “iPhone” product name on the rear panel, suggesting the component could be an elaborate counterfeit.
Is this the back and sides of the new iPhone?
9To5Mac reports that iFixyouri, an online iPhone repair company based out of Florida, received a next generation iPhone part from its Chinese suppliers. This isn’t a small component that has little bearing on the iPhone’s design, like the home button or the front camera featured previously. The part in question is allegedly the back panel of the next iPhone, which includes the side panels, an opening for a dock connector, and larger speaker grills.
iPhone 5 with 3.999-inch display, 1136 x 640 resolution in testing
According to 9to5Mac, at Apple HQ, testing is taking place on a couple of prototype handsets, one of which will probably become the next Apple iPhone 5. The prototypes are disguised by being put in thick black shells which are designed to hide the true identity of the phone inside. Two of the models being tested have larger screens than the current 3.5 inches that used to be considered generously sized when the first Apple iPhone was launched in 2007. The two Apple iPhone prototypes with the larger screen are internally called the iPhone 5.1 and the iPhone 5.2.
