Purported iPhone 5S parts leaked, show slightly different home button connector and adapted vibrator motor

When an iOS device is a few months down the line, the general pattern is that rumored internal parts start to crop up on line. It’s virtually guaranteed that the next iPhone will indeed be the iPhone 5S. Essentially, keeping the same design but boosting the performance and specs. As you can imagine, telling components apart from one model to the next can be a tricky task, especially when – to the untrained eye – the two devices look exactly the same.

The latest leak shows what is supposedly the iPhone 5S’ home button flex/connector and the vibrator motor.

The parts above are the home buttons and adjoining flexes for each model. The home button switch itself is almost identical on both models. Where the difference lies is in the flex which connects the home button to the rest of the internal circuitry once assembled. There are serial/indicator numbers on the parts which – again – are very similar on both parts, further indicating that these are genuine Apple parts and not copies or clones.

Details are a little sketchy at best on the other part which showed up on the same site. The image below is supposedly the vibrator motor for the iPhone 5S. There are no indicative numbers to go by.

Whether or not these are genuine iPhone 5S parts will only be discovered once the released device gets its usual teardown from iFixit.com. But it would not be at all surprising if they turned out to be the real deal.

    TiP_Cam poor design on current vibrate motor!

    ModiNinja Yeah, it’s hideous. ;-)

    TiP_Cam they are going to have a ton of issues with the vibrate motor and power buttons in a few months…

    ModiNinja I think I read something about it somewhere a while back. Noisier, less efficient ones in use currently, right?

  • ModiNinja

    TiP_Cam yeah, not a fan of the rotational motor design
