Image matches up with recent photos
An iPhone repair company, iLab Factory, has produced what it claims are schematics for the next-generation iPhone. The images are consistent with recent photos of alleged next-gen iPhone parts. Similar details include a taller display, and a relocated front camera, placed above the earpiece instead of next to it. A schematic leak is extremely unusual; typically, only the parts themselves come into the public domain, through leaks at repair outfits, suppliers, and/or accessory makers.
The next-generation iPhone is now widely expected to switch to a taller screen, measuring roughly 4 inches. It may also use a smaller dock connector, and will likely switch to LTE cellular data, following in the steps of the third-generation iPad. Yesterday's parts photos also suggest that Apple is relocating the headphone jack to the bottom of the phone, copying a design trait of the iPod touch.
