iPhone 5 back plate

Yesterday, several photos of what are allegedly pictures of the iPhone 5 backside were leaked. They looked convincing enough: the back appears to have some sort of metal coating, there’s a smaller dock connector, a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom and a body that suggests the phone will also offer a larger screen. 9to5Mac said Wednesday that those images, indeed, match “what is being tested internally” at Apple. That’s exciting news if you’re pleased with what the phone’s design looks like so far. As the image also suggests, Apple will release a white and a black model of the its next generation iPhone.
