New components claimed to be for a yet-unannounced iPhone 5 have appeared online. MacPost reports that parts claimed to be a “camera lens replacement,” earphone audio jack, and a sleep/wake flex cable have all been spotted for sale from different Chinese resellers. Notably, the earphone audio jack pieces are available in both black and white, suggesting that if real, the iPhone 5 will be available in both hues. While similar parts have leaked out in the weeks preceding prior iPhone launches, it is difficult to confirm the authenticity of these parts.
