Leaked document details iPhone 5 components

Document sent to a New Zealand retailer contains images similar to those leaked by repair company iResQ

The components for Apple's new iPhone that have been leaked online appear to be legitimate.

New Zealand PC World has obtained a document sent to a New Zealand retailer detailing the iPhone 5's components. The components pictured in the document match the images already leaked by repair company iResQ.

The document comes from a trusted source, and was originally sent by a reputable supplier of iPhone components in China.

The document shows the iPhone's two-tone rear panel, as rumoured. The black version of the iPhone will come in grey/black, and the white in white/silver. The phone appears to be a similar shape to the iPhone 4/4S despite its obviously taller screen; however, the document does not say how large the screen is.

The battery is the same as the one pictured in iResQ's images, and the power/dock connector is smaller than in previous versions of the iPhone, in line with rumours of a 9-pin connector.

There are also several flexible sensors that appear to be the ones shown in iResQ's images.

There are also shots of some components that we have not spotted in images leaked so far, such as the phone's vibrator and nanoSIM tray (microSIM tray). The vibrator appears to be more similar to that of the iPhone 4 than that of the iPhone 4S.

The new iPhone is expected to be announced on 12 September.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
