Introducing the iPhone 5S (Parody)





We all know that the new iPhones are just around the corner. What that means is that it is high time someone created a parody on the new devices' welcome video and uploaded it on YouTube. You see, each time Apple releases its new smartphone or tablet, someone shots a clip that makes fun of either gadget itself, or the fans waiting for the release date, or whatever else.

This year is not an exception - below you can see a short iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C introductory video. People, who look almost just like the actual Apple’s engineers and executives (I’m joking, of course), tell us the story about what do the the letters “S” and “C” mean.

I won’t tell you anything more - watch the video yourself.

Photos of iPhone 5C logic board



Chinese Site CTechCN has posted the photos of iPhone 5C logic board. The resource has also published the box for iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5S in graphite color.

The comparison photo published by the website features the logic board of  iPhone 5C an iPhone 5. The casing of iPhone 5C has three screw holes in it that line up with the logic board. The board does not differ from the one for iPhone 5, thus it may be safe to assume that the iPhone 5C is literally an iPhone 5 with a plastic casing.

iPhone Home button with a fingerprint scanner



The photos of the home button of the iPhone 5S show that it includes some new components. Accordng to Nowhereelse, they are most likely to refer to the rumored fingerprint scanner.

The first notable difference of course for the general shape of the map but not really enough to jump to the ceiling. Even more interesting, a mysterious square element placed closer button instantly revives the rumor. Followed by two other components attached to the extension of the map and that all seemed to be resistance. Needless to say that these three elements are absent from the button back to the home of the iPhone 5 and is to my knowledge unprecedented for this spare parts, all iPhone generations combined.

The part has the identification number 821-2092-01, it seems to have been manufactured on the 29th week of 2013 (mid-July).

However, MacRumors claims that the same part was sold om sw-box as a component of iPhone 5C . So it is not clear what device it belongs to.

Apple will unveil both iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th.
