There’s nothing like finding shoes that fit, and that can be quite a challenge when trying to fill a puzzle full of leaks. So far it seems that the source of many of the leaks found regarding the iPhone 5’s back plate and some components like the dock connector decided to put matters into their own hands and try to fit all these parts together. The results were great as it seems that everything fits as it should within the housing of one of the first prototypes leaked. According to the source:
“One of our technicians was even able to screw the assembly into the pre-aligned screw holes inside of the frame. All of the threading and screw holes lined up perfectly with the screw holes in then docking port/headphone jack assembly,”
“1. The iPhone 5 frame/back casing that we have in house is an incomplete part (it is a shell that should be filled in with more parts). This means that there are some missing plastic gaskets and fittings inside of the back casing that should fill in the tiny gaps between the docking port and the headphone jack in relation to the frame. So the gaps you see here should be filled in with the completely assembled back casing when it is released.
2. From what this looks like, the speaker will fit inside of the new iPhone similar to the iPhone 4 and 4S. Because of this, we expect the new iPhone to have just one speaker like the current models.”
I still do feel that these parts are simply of one of many of Apple’s prototypes, so I wouldn’t hold my breath and expect this to be anything close to a final design. That doesn’t mean I don’t wish I was wrong also.
