For the second day in a row, French website Nowhere Else has posted pictures of parts that are likely for the next-generation iPhone. The photo shows the front display panel, SIM card tray, home buttons, a protective shield that goes behind the 4-inch display, flex cables and various external buttons and switches. Yesterday, the same publication posted photos of the claimed smaller dock connector for the forthcoming iPhone, revealing a small metallic ring around the port that could mean Apple is planning on bringing MagSafe functionality to the smartphone.
Apple is expected to hold a special event on September 12th to announce the sixth-generation iPhone, rumored to feature an aluminum unibody chassis, smaller 8-pin, 9-pin or 19-pin dock connector, centered FaceTime camera, redesigned speaker grills and a headphone jack relocated to the bottom of the handset. Moreover, it is also widely expected that Apple’s next iPhone will be compatible with LTE networks and could feature NFC for mobile payments. Many of these features and changes are also expected to carry over to future iPod touch and iPad models. A few other images are just after the break.
