We are back with another rumor today about the new and the upcoming iPhone 5, the new iPhone which is expected to be released by the Cupertino tech giant, Apple, to the end of this year. The new rumor is actually a leaked photo of what is said to be an internet component of the new iPhone 5. What you see in the image above is said to be the headphone jack with the Wi Fi antenna. But even a person with no electronics literacy will be able to tell that it does not look anything like a headphone jack.
People are there who believe that this is the new and smaller dock connector that the rumor said would be a bit smaller than the current 30 pin one. And yes, reports say that this is a bit smaller than the one present on the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. But there is no way to confirm it as the component itself has not been leaked, only an image has been leaked.
In the current iPhones, the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, the 30 pin dock connector and the loud speaker units make up one assembly, as you can see from the image below. And if you look at the leaked image of the new iPhone 5’s internal component, you would see that the two components have a lot of resemblance to each other.
The Wi Fi antenna, that the image part is said to be sporting, is always found at the top of the phone, in both the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. Also, the cellular antenna is found at the top of the phone. All these are hard wired and glued to the body of the phone. But there is also a rumor that the cellular antenna in the new iPhone 5 is not a separate unit as it is now and has been merged with the dock connector. So what we are looking at might possibly be an assembly containing the new and small dock connector, the loud speaker, and the cellular antenna. In any way, we will come to know about all these in a few months. Till then, stay tuned.
