Alleged iPhone 5 Parts Assembled: Is This the New iPhone?

By Brian Barrett on at

It's getting to be the time of year when new iPhone rumors are flying with abandon, and grains of salt are needed by the tonne. But when industrious repair shop iLab takes a mess of purported new iPhone parts and assembles them into one very convincing device, it's worth paying attention.

Is this what Apple's new iPhone will look like when it's finally released this fall? Impossible to say. But it sure lines up with everything else we've heard. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that it looks absolutely gorgeous.

The pics were unearthed by 9to5Mac, which points out that many of these parts have been floating around separately for several months now. But this particular Voltron seems to be the most complete look we've seen, and matches up exactly with a rumoured iPhone 5 video that popped up recently from a different Apple parts supplier.
