Hands-On With iPad 5 Back Housing

Following yesterday’s leak of the front panel for Apple’s upcoming 5th-gen iPad, we’ve also managed to get our hands on the rear metal shell! This shell indicates that Apple will be bringing the iPad mini design language over to the full size iPad. This means that there will be slimmer side bezels, a less rounded design, and chamfered edges running along the perimeter of the device. Together, these images provide a great deal of perspective on what we can expect from the next iPad.

Hands-On With iPad 5 Front Panel

In the latest round of Apple part leaks, we just got our hands on the front panel for Apple’s 5th-generation iPad. The part doesn’t feature many surprises. Indeed, it’s pretty much exactly what we’ve come to expect, featuring slimmer side bezels that resemble the iPad mini, which gives the glass panel an overall slimmer, more modern look. In addition to the slimmer side bezel that you see in the photo, it’s likely that the finished 5th-gen iPad will also feature a slimmer and lighter design than it’s predecessor.

Hands-On With iPad Mini 2 Back Housing

Just when you thought we were done with Apple part leaks, we’ve just gotten our hands on the iPad Mini 2 Back Housing. As expected, the design doesn’t seem to vary significantly (or at all) from the original iPad mini design. In reality, the most significant change expected to come to the iPad mini 2 is a high-resolution Retina display. One notable design change over the previous generation is the removal of the “polished on” Apple logo, this logo has been replaced with a polished insert on the back of...

The First Part Leaks of the Grey or ‘Graphite’ iPhone 5S

Up to this point, it has widely been reported that the iPhone 5S will only come in 3 colors: Gold, Slate, and white with silver trim. According to a new images we’ve obtained, however, it appears the iPhone 5S may also come in a 4th color – a grey or graphite color with a black trim. You can check out samples in the below gallery.

High-Quality Photos of Champagne iPhone 5S Rear Shell Surface + Screen

Direct from our source in Apple’s Asian supply chain, we have an exclusive look at the iPhone 5s back housing in Champagne. On the outside, the 5s casing looks almost exactly like the iPhone 5 (besides the color and dual LED flash cutout). Like all “S” release devices, the changes are mostly internal and the iPhone 5s casing is no different. The first thing that we noticed upon inspection is that the screw mounting posts are in slightly different locations, this most likely points to a new logic board in the...

The Truth About the Black iPhone 5C

Earlier this week, the Apple “blogosphere” went ablaze over the possibility of a black color option for Apple’s upcoming lower-cost iPhone, referred to by most as the iPhone 5C.

Looking for a cool way to sneak your way into hidden settings in iOS? We’ve released a number of .mobileconfig files which allow users of non-jailbroken iPhones to enable certain debugging options which have previously been unavailable.

SonnyDickson.com readers aren’t typically end users, however – so we’ve decided to offer you access to these settings also (use at your own risk, of course)! The configuration files are available...
