Leak claims to show schematics for next-gen iPhone

updated 10:47 am EDT, Wed May 30, 2012

Image matches up with recent photos

An iPhone repair company, iLab Factory, has produced what it claims are schematics for the next-generation iPhone. The images are consistent with recent photos of alleged next-gen iPhone parts. Similar details include a taller display, and a relocated front camera, placed above the earpiece instead of next to it. A schematic leak is extremely unusual; typically, only the parts themselves come into the public domain, through leaks at repair outfits, suppliers, and/or accessory makers.

The next-generation iPhone is now widely expected to switch to a taller screen, measuring roughly 4 inches. It may also use a smaller dock connector, and will likely switch to LTE cellular data, following in the steps of the third-generation iPad. Yesterday's parts photos also suggest that Apple is relocating the headphone jack to the bottom of the phone, copying a design trait of the iPod touch.

    Dimmensions are too blury to read but...

    It does feel like the screen will be a bit larger!

    Finally the iPhone is getting an easier to read display,
    older users will be very happy,
    as well as heavy multimedia consumers.

    Usually solid iStuff leaks come only weeks before the actual device, we only need a new "lost" device and we can be certain of a late June - July, announcement.
