Next-Generation iPhone Photos Leak; Shows Longer Screen, Metal Backplates

Apple iPhone 4New photos of the next-generation iPhone have hit the web, and it looks like Apple fans have plenty of new changes to look forward to when it arrives.

Earlier today, 9 to 5 Mac got its hands on the backplates and frames of the upcoming next-generation iPhone. From the images posted, it seems Apple is making some external and internal changes.

As with the iPhone 4 and 4S, the next-generation iPhone will be available in black and white. Both the black and white versions have backplates that are made of metal, with the plastic trim at the top and bottom. The metal antenna is molded into these metal backplates, likely as a way of making a unibody enclosure for stronger, yet thinner and lighter gadgets.

The new backplates and frames also show that the next-generation iPhone will be the same width, but it will be longer. The screen will reportedly be longer with a size of 3.999 inches diagonally and will have a resolution of 1136 x 640.

Other notable changes that are apparent from the backplates and frames are a smaller dock connector, redesigned speaker grills, a new opening between the camera lens and the LED flash (which is where a second microphone may be placed for better audio when recording video), the earphone jack has been relocated to the bottom corner of the iPhone, and the front camera lens has become centered above the earpiece.

It also appears that Apple will not feature edge-to-edge technology in this version of the iPhone, but the possibility of Micro-SIM technology (or maybe even no SIMs at all) is pretty strong. LTE and a better processor are a few other add-ons that are expected in the next-generation iPhone.

The next generation iPhone is expected to make an appearance in the fall along with iOS 6.

In addition to next-gen iPhone spec leaks, it was also rumored last week that Apple will release a Mini iPad later this year. The Mini version of Apple's famous tablet is rumored to be 7-inches.

Speaking of Apple prototypes, an original iPad with two dock connectors sold on eBay for $10,200 yesterday. Apple never formally released an iPad with two dock connectors, where one was designed for portrait and the other for landscape, but that rare gadget made its way onto eBay for an expensive Memorial Day bidding war.
