Photos of iPhone 5 parts reveal details of appearance

If you want to know what the next iPhone will probably look like, head on over to 9To5Mac. They've got a number of photos of the various parts of the iPhone 5, including the aluminum back plate, the frame, and the front glass. These parts are in accord with the latest rumors: a taller device with a 4-inch screen, a smaller dock connector, and a relocated headphone jack. In addition, the front-facing camera is now centered. It's interesting to see the two-tone design on the back. 9To5Mac speculates that the antenna appears to be molded into the back plates and that this will allow a unibody design, as well as create more space available internally for a more robust battery and other components.
