Leaked iPhone parts roundup: iPhone 5C video, iPhone 5S back panel, iPhone 5C buttons

As the iPhone 5S release date and iPhone 5C release data approach, leaked parts have been flooding the web

Over the past month, there have been so many leaked iPad 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C parts that we've been able to do regular leaked parts roundups. This week has been no exception.

It's expected that both the next-generation iPhone and a low-cost iPhone will be unveiled at a 10 September Apple special event, so the closer we get to that rumoured release date the more leaked components we're likely to come across.

Here's the roundup of this week's leaked iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C parts.

iPhone 5C video

A three-minute video that compares the cheaper iPhone, dubbed iPhone 5C, to the iPhone 5 and older iPhone models has been published this week.

The video shows a yellow model of the rumoured low-cost iPhone, and is described as a "hands-on" with the iPhone 5C's back housing.

The device appears to be the same size as the iPhone 5, which suggests that it will have a 4in screen. It has rounded corners and is made with plastic rather than aluminium and glass.

The iPhone 5C shown in the video also has a speaker grill at the bottom, with the headphone jack and a Lightning connector alongside it.

Previous reports and leaked images have suggested that the iPhone 5C will be available in a variety of colours, so this yellow colour could be one of the new options.

iPhone 5S rear shell

French blog Nowhereelse.fr has this week published photographs of what appears to be the rear shell of an iPhone 5S.

The photographs show the allegedly leaked part alongside an iPhone 5's rear shell, highlighting the differences between the two.

The differences between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5S rear shell indicate that the iPhone 5S will have a better camera, possibly including the rumoured dual-LED flash.

The Home button part of the rear casing looks a bit different to the iPhone 5's, which could also hint that the rumours of a fingerprint sensor built-in to the Home button could be correct.

iPhone 5C mute switch, volume and power buttons

Earlier in the week, Sonny Dickson published a series of photographs that show what is believed to be buttons destined for the new iPhone 5C.

According to the report, the photographs come from "a trusted source in China who has had access to device parts in the past."

The photographs show the buttons in four different colours: green, yellow, red and blue.

iPhone 5S camera cut-outs

On Monday, Nowherelse.fr published photos of the top portion of the iPhone 5S's rear case, which show space for a camera lens, rear-facing microphone and a space for the LED flash, which is bigger than that of the iPhone 5.

This hints that the iPhone 5S is indeed getting a dual-LED flash to help improve photographs.

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.)

Brother PT-P750W

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!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.

Emily Tyson

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

Laura Johnston

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
