One of our sources has provided us with images of what are claimed to be new next-generation iOS device parts being carried by a supplier. Supplier claiming next-generation iPod touch front panel would be taller than the current model and that the opening in the front panel measures 4.1 inches diagonally.
Our source’s supplier has also included new parts claimed to be for the next-generation iPhone, including the home button flex cable and front and rear cameras, although the camera parts are listed as needing “verification”, so the supplier may yet be confirming their authenticity. The home button flex cable and front camera assembly show distinct differences from their iPhone 4S counterparts, although they may end up being functionally indistinguishable from the user’s perspective. The rear camera appears very similar to modules used in the last several generations of the iPhone, although it is lacking an associated LED flash.
Better photos posted by BadGizmo Repair, which appears to have received its information from the same supplier as our source.
The authenticity of all of the parts has yet to be confirmed, but past history suggests that these components are frequently genuine parts leaked from Apple’s supply chain.
