Leaked parts that should make up the next-generation Apple iPhone have been assembled with great success by repair shop iResQ which confirmed this week that “the docking port and headphone jack assembly seemed to fit perfectly inside of the frame.”
iResQ is not at its first iPhone 5 leak, but it’s certainly getting some attention
with every new report it posts.
For instance, on Monday they put together all the parts they had to get what you see in the image above.
“We were able to fit the docking port and headphone jack assembly that we showed you on Friday into the new iPhone's frame/back casing,” says the repair shop.
After confirming that the docking port and headphone jack assembly fitted nicely inside the chassis, iResQ also noted that one of its tech savvy members was “even able to screw the assembly into the pre-aligned screw holes inside of the frame.”
“All of the threading and screw holes lined up perfectly with the screw holes in the docking port/headphone jack assembly,” wrote the company.
After analyzing the unibody construction of the chassis, the electronics repair firm noticed that the back casing was an incomplete part.
“It is a shell that should be filled in with more parts,” iResQ said, explaining that “that there are some missing plastic gaskets and fittings inside of the back casing that should fill in the tiny gaps between the docking port and the headphone jack in relation to the frame.”
“So the gaps you see here should be filled in with the completely assembled back casing when it is released,” iResQ said.
It is known that Apple will place two non-metal caps at the top and bottom of the back side of the phone. These will act as windows to the antennas inside the phone for good cellular reception and Wi-Fi networking.
Lastly, the iPhone 5 might have only one speaker, just like its predecessor, according to these images.
