The blog 9to5Mac alleges
the high-res photos show the upcoming sixth-generation iPhone
, both the front and back. The leaked pics reveal a larger frame than the iPhone 4, confirming reports
the iPhone 5's screen will be larger than its predecessor's.
The blog also found
how "it appears that the metal antenna band is molded into the metal backplates. We assume this is Apple’s way of creating a unibody enclosure for mobile devices."
Other purported changes include a new, smaller dock connector on the bottom of the smartphone, redesigned speaker grills and a headphone jack now placed on the bottom of the phone, as opposed to the top.
The blog says
they expect the new iPhone to launch alongside iOS 6 in the fall.
Since the original version was released in 2007, the iPhone has grown to account for more than 40 percent of Apple's total revenue, CNET writes
