Next Generation iPhone 5 Parts Show Antenna Redesign

Purported next generation iPhone 5 parts have been revealed by two independent smartphone repair outfits. This unreleased iPhone features four antenna separation gaps in the silver frame, one at each corner of the device. In contrast, the iPhone 4 only has three of these black lines.

Although these changes to the iPhone frame are likely a redesign of the antenna, it's not clear if the changes are to accommodate the Verizon Wireless LTE network or simply to reduce the attenuation issues experienced by some users. Apple decided to distribute free cases to iPhone 4 owners last year due to complaints that the iPhone 4 dropped calls when held a certain way.

The ensuing media storm was dubbed "Antennagate" even though the iPhone 4 external antenna design was more sensitive to low strength cellular signals. Those who are having problems with their iPhone 4 can still request a free case from Apple.

Assuming the iPhone 5 or Verizon iPhone parts pictured are real, they show that Apple moved the mute button down slightly to accommodate one of the antenna separation gaps. Both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 have SIM card slots in the same place. Like AT&T's GSM network, the Verizon LTE network will require a SIM card. Apple could be launching the Verizon iPhone with LTE capabilities, or launching a dual-mode iPhone that works with several different carriers.

There is also a possibility that newly manufactured iPhone 4 models are getting an updated antenna design, however given Apple's history this is less likely. Although the iPhone 3GS improved dramatically on the iPhone 3G, both devices kept the same shape. Apple may keep the basic iPhone 4 design for another product cycle while upgrading internal components such as the processor.

Apple Insider linked to a video from one of the parts suppliers that showed several alleged iPhone 5 parts, however the video has been pulled down due to a copyright claim by Apple.


... or these could just be "incorrectly" designed frames from any of countless Chinese-made knockoff iPhones. (The phones look almost identical to the iphone 4.)

This is the verizon iPhone. Check out the announcement video and u will see this exact phone with the cut above the volume rocker.

I dont see why apple didn't put all 3 antennas on top of the iphone between the sleep wake button and headphone jack. Even moving the antenna up will still cause problems

Bullshit rumors. This website sucks. Goodbye!

they can hear and see what your visually thinking

the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
thats why nobody knows about it!

try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

you have to spread the message!!!
the world has to know about this!!!!

Still, (I may be wrong) no replaceable battery!!
