Yesterday we saw photos of what was claimed to be the logic board of the upcoming iPhone 5S. MacRumors has released additional photos of what looks like the display assembly of iPhone 5S.
A report from earlier last month indicated that the mass production of of displays for the next generation iPhones would begin in June. As if right on cue, we have the first photos of the display assembly.
The size of the display seems to retain the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5. The leak, if true, confirms what we have been suspecting of all along. The next iPhone will be the 5S and not the iPhone 6. The updates are likely to be minor increments in the internals rather than a completely new design.
The images are pretty low resolution and do not reveal any significant changes in the technology responsible for the display’s operation. But they do contribute to the credibility of the leaked images of the logic board we saw yesterday. One connector of the display assembly is oriented vertically and the other horizontally. This directly corresponds to what was seen on the logic board yesterday.
There are indications that the next iPhone could pack a revamped home button. Reuters also reported that a fingerprint scanner was in the works.
It is tipped for a September launch but there is no confirmation on the date yet. It will run on the recently announced iOS 7.
