There sure is absolutely no shortages in claimed iPhone 5 components leaking out so far this year. The latest addition is the headphone jack/earpiece component. Major component reseller SW-BOX.com has actually added this iPhone 5 claimed component to their website, and listed it as ‘out of stock’. The same website actually listed the iPhone 5′s SIM card tray and home button within these past few weeks.
We can’t confirm that this is a legit piece of hardware for the iPhone either. This may be SW-BOX playing a trick to ramp up the visitors to their website, or it could be the real thing. There is no telling right now being such a length aways from an iPhone release.
But if this part is real, than as MacRumors notes, it will be a huge departure from past component organizations. With the iPhone 4/4s the headphone jack,volume, and mute switches are all together on one component board. This new piece shows the headphone jack, speaker, and Wi-fi cabling on one board.
If your looking for a re-designed iPhone, than this comes to be great news for you. Change in organization signals Apple is at least looking to change the size of the phone. And this is the very first component leak that isn’t comparable to the iPhone 4/4s.
