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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
