Leaked 'iPhone 5S' front panel shows little difference from iPhone 5

updated 10:59 am EDT, Tue August 6, 2013

Suggests that phone may indeed only be minor upgrade

A newly-leaked front panel -- said to be for the iPhone 5S -- appears to show few meaningful changes in the device versus the iPhone 5. The screen for example is the same size on the new panel, which may dispel rumors that the 5S is upgrading to a 4.3-inch display. The part does have a longer ribbon cable, relocated screws, and some other slight changes.

A number of recent leaks have backed the notion that the next flagship iPhone will be just a minor upgrade. There have been hints of a 5S getting fingerprint recognition, but at the same time, no websites have obtained any fingerprint sensors. Apple may instead be concentrating on things like a better camera, NFC, and/or a faster processor.
