New photo shows 'iPhone Lite' back with FCC, other markings

updated 12:00 pm EDT, Fri July 26, 2013

Finished devices could be coming off assembly line

A new photo shows what appears to be the back of a completed low-cost iPhone, sometimes known as the iPhone Lite, reports say. Unlike past leaks, the camera, headphone, and Lightning ports appear to be filled, and the back has various certification markings, including one from the FCC. The device hasn't been spotted in FCC filings, but like some other companies Apple typically requests that approvals be kept quiet until a product has been formally announced.

Although the authenticity of the hardware is difficult to judge, it is consistent with other leaked backs and schematics. The new differences could signify that the low-cost iPhone is entering mass production, presumably in time for an anticipated September launch alongside the iPhone 5S.
