Latest iPhone 5 parts leak shows dock port and headphone jack plugged into casing

Updated 4 years ago

With the next-generation Apple (AAPL) iPhone just weeks away from being announced, it’s no surprise that we’re getting a clearer picture of what the device will look like through a wide array of leaked parts. The repair specialists at iResQ have taken a crack at assembling some of these parts together Frankenstein-style, and have managed to place the new iPhone’s smaller dock port and headphone jack into the next-generation iPhone’s casing.

IResQ found that all of the parts matched up perfectly with one another and that they were “even able to screw the assembly into the pre-aligned screw holes inside of the frame.” The results show an iPhone case with a smaller dock connector port and a headphone jack placed next to one another on the bottom of the device, which is a clear change from previous models that featured the headphone jack on the top of the phone.
