As we get closer to September, which is purportedly when the next-gen iPhone will be announced, images of alleged leaked components are starting to become more commonplace. It wasn’t too long ago when the SIM tray for the next-gen iPhone was spotted, revealing Apple’s plans to use the nano SIM standard for its upcoming device. Now thanks to the folks at iColorOS, more images of the next-gen iPhone have surfaced. This is not a photo of the fully assembled device, but rather some of the alleged components belonging to the phone. This includes the glass cover, internal sensors, external buttons along with a thin sheet of metal which apparently will be a shield for the back of the screen. Its purpose is unclear at this point in time, but it has been suggested that it could be put there for EMI shielding or to protect the screen from the heat coming from the internal components, but we guess we will have to wait and see if the final product will actually look like the leaked images. In any case be sure to check back with us in September for the details! Until then we suggest you take this with a grain of salt.
