Photos show alleged Home button, vibrator for iPhone 5S

Could support device approaching production

Images from a Japanese forum may show parts for Apple's rumored iPhone 5S, says French site NWE. One of these is a Home button, which is contrasted with its equivalent in the iPhone 5. The two units use different flex cables, but have similar serial numbers, which could back the new part's authenticity.

Also seen is a supposed vibrator for the 5S, which is more difficult to analyze given a lack of serial numbers or any contrast with the motor in the iPhone 5. In January the same website also posted a collection of alleged 5S and iPhone 6 parts, suggesting that both devices would ship this year, even though the 6 is widely expected to ship only in 2014. Apple is rumored to be working on multiple phones for 2013, but apart from the 5S the other is thought to be a low-cost model.
