Working new iPhone leaks in photos next to iPhone 4S

New images and the first video of Apple’s next-generation iPhone in action have appeared online. Posted by Vgooo, the video shows a side-by-side comparison of the new iPhone booting up next to the iPhone 4S, while the video and photos spotlight previously fuzzy details of the device’s metal and glass enclosure. A protective metal rim is clearly shown surrounding the rear glass antenna windows, while a new, smaller “nano SIM” slot is found on the side, and the top surface is shown without a headphone port, all details that were assumed from earlier leak but rendered clearly in the latest images.

The taller and thinner new iPhone can be seen booting just slightly quicker than the 4S, though the setup process is stopped early on by an iOS 6 registration error. A report from M.I.C. Gadget states that a tipster told Chinese tech site Vgooo.com that the new iPhone was “discovered” when he visited his friend at a Foxconn factory. Video and photos are embedded below. [via M.I.C.

Just for fun:

Why?

Why do you need a new adaptor for old dock connectors as reported? Won’t the new phone come with a charger?

Why is the connector smaller in the 1st place? Why bother with so much more room in the new shell?

Everything is Wireless now except charging, right? The adaptor won’t fit in existing dock-style accessories, so what’s the point of an adaptor? Save your old car charger? Really? How can Apple predict they’ll sell so many adaptors, as reported, which so few really should need? Why buy an adaptor unless you plan to use an old charger in addition to the charger that comes with the new Device? Only if you want two or more chargers, right?

Two seemingly unrelated questions: why is the phone so much larger than the extra screen size requires? Why did Nokia botch their announcement going early before they had a release date?

Guess what, all these questions are answered by one simple feature:

The iPhone 5 will be a 100% wireless Device with wireless charging.

The smaller dock is for service and recovery access; no cable included in box.
