The alleged headphone jack, earpiece and Wi-Fi cable for the next Apple iPhone emerge
While many expect some dramatic exterior changes for the next iteration of the Apple iPhone, it would appear that some of the changes are taking place inside the device. Parts that are claimed to be the headphone jack, earpiece and Wi-Fi cables for the 6th generation Apple iPhone are being offered on the website of parts supplier SW-BOX. Unlike the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S, the headphone jack is connected to the earpiece and Wi-Fi components. The current version of Apple's iconic smartphone, the Apple iPhone 4S (and the iPhone 4) have a headphone jack that is connected to the unit's volume buttons and mute switch in the upper left corner of the handset.

The entire component costs $7.71 and SW-BOX says it is compatible only with the Apple iPhone 5. The site earlier this month displayed a SIM card tray allegedly for the new iPhone which had a subtle change in design compared to the currently used piece. In March, Apple was said to be reviewing different components for the next iPhone. Trying to catch up with Android screen sizes that have been as large as 5.3 inches, it is expected that Apple will be making huge changes to the design of the next model. Most expect the Apple iPhone 5 to feature a larger 4 inch screen and a thinner uni-body frame. Even Wall Street now expects such changes to the sixth-generation of the device.
