2012 iPhone rumours are heating up once again. It’s not unusual for people to speculate before the release of a next generation iPhone. Lord knows what the real device is going to be, but it is our duty to keep you up to date with all of the rumours that are making rounds on the internet. An alleged leaked 2012 iPhone part has surfaced on the internet. Images of this part reveal that the next generation iPhone will have an aluminium back. There’s another shocking revelation. Apparently Apple is going to add a smaller dock connector to the new iPhone, if these images are actually of a legitimate part.
These images also confirm latest rumours that the next generation iPhone will have a larger screen than it’s predecessors. All iPhone up till now have sported a 3.5-inch display. It is rumoured that the, for want of a better name, iPhone 5 will sport a 4-inch display. The reason behind this is said to be the plethora of Android devices sporting displays as large as 4.8-inches, setting trends in the global smartphone market. Since the screen is going to be larger, the overall dimensions of the device are obviously going to be larger.
The image posted above were initially posted online by a repair firm called uBreakiFix. It clearly shows a longer iPhone with an aluminium back as opposed to the glass ones we have seen in iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Recent rumours have hinted at an aluminium back for next generation iPhone. Furthermore there are glass ends on the top and bottom of this panel, indicating that a longer display will be smoothly flushed in the front panel of 2012 iPhone.
It has also been revealed that a smaller dock connector will replace Apple’s iconic 30=pin dock connector which currently comes as standard in all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. The headphone jack is also said to have been relocated to the bottom of the device, alongside the new smaller dock connector. Apple’s sixth generation iPhone is going to feature a lot of changes.
People are looking forward to the all new design, which was reportedly worked very closely on by Steve Jobs months before his death. It is not unusual for purported parts of next generation iPhone to leak before it’s release, however the legitimacy can always be doubted. We can only be sure when Apple itself makes the official announcement sometime in September or October later this year.
