iPhone SIM Trays Show Some Odd Color Options; iPhone 5S Parts?


Among the dozens of ideas offered forth in the hopes of predicting what we might expect from Apple’s next iPhone has been the notion that Apple could throw caution to the wind and branch beyond simply black and white, out into a whole rainbow of color options. This theory has been a tough one to get a solid read on, since while a very limited set of options for the iPhone itself has long been Apple’s modus operandi, the company shows little such restraint when it comes to other products – particularly its iPod lineup. So, will we see new iPhone 5S colors or not? The latest component leak has us wondering if we just might, showing the phone’s nano-SIM tray in gold and gray.

Well, that could be neat to see, but are these even really iPhone 5S parts? The source seems to think it’s a possibility, but we have our doubts. For one, these appear to be exactly the same design as the current iPhone 5. Really, that’s not surprising, as we were expecting relatively little to change for the new model.

The problem is more along the lines of how trivial it would be to fabricate some unofficially colored parts on the dies for existing iPhone 5 SIM trays. That’s going to force us to raise the bar a little on what to expect from legitimate iPhone 5S parts; these may be the real deal, but the details available now just aren’t that convincing.
