Pictures of the new Apple iPhone's motherboard appear, shows new antennas and battery coming
iDeviceGuys, the battery connector now has 5 pins according to the picture, instead of 4 on the current device. This would seem to confirm the slightly higher capacity battery for the next Apple iPhone that was recently photographed. The repair experts also noticed that there are more antenna connections than on the Apple iPhone 4S which points to LTE connectivity for the 6th generation of Apple's smartphone. The digitizer connector also appears to be changed leading the iDeviceGuy team to expect the new, thinner in-cell screen technology for the next model. And the connection points on the motherboard seem to match up to leaked shots of the parts for the back of the phone according to NoWhereElse.fr, which managed to produce an image of all of the parts lining up.
While you might usually consider this the work of someone seeking attention, the same person posted legitimate pictures of the Apple iPhone 4S motherboard in August 2011, well before the unit was introduced. The newest model of the device is expected to be introduced on September 12th and launched on September 21st.
