iPhone 5S Specs Leaked Parts

iPhone 5

Photographed parts that allegedly come from Apple’s (AAPL) next-generation iPhone were published on Friday by Japanese vendor Moumantai, which describes the components as the home button, flex cable and internal vibrator for the iPhone 5S. It was believed that Apple was planning to include a fingerprint scanner in the home button, however this is now in doubt because the purported iPhone 5S button looks nearly identical to the one found on the iPhone 5. According to MacRumors, the only difference is the positioning and size of the flex cable. The internal vibrator is also similar to the one found in the iPhone 5, once again suggesting that the iPhone 5S won’t include any major design changes from earlier models. The latest rumors claim that Apple is will release the iPhone 5S in late summer. The leaked images follow below.
