Photos of the iPhone 5S rear housing have allegedly leaked already, reports etradesupply.

It seems that the pictures were taken at the assembly line of an operation stage. The photographer has showed the front and rear side of the housing, which looks very similar to the iPhone 5. However, the reason why we say it is a suspected iPhone 5s rear housing is that the specific information below the logo, which are replaced by “X”. Usually, the parts with “X” stand for test prototype.

Inside the rear housing, we can find some changes when comparing it with iPhone 5. First, the “iPhone 5s” has two less screw holes on the left side which are used to fasten the LCD. Second, the position of 3 screw holes used to fasten the logic board has been removed (not sure whether caused by the change of logic board).

Notably, the Commercial Times said Apple was set to begin trial production of the iPhone 5S in December with initial runs of about 50,000 - 100,000. A separate report also predicted the release of the next iPhone in mid-2013.

Take a look at the housing photos below...

I have been using iphone since first generation..and never been disappointed by the quality..ios etc..but honestly after using iphone 5 for almost 2 months now..I have to say..I am disappointed (biggest issue being maps)..apart from weight..and screen size..there is nothing new which I can't do on iphone 4s (yeah the processor is fast..i know)..I have only used samsung s3 for 2 days in the past (before iphone 5 launched)..and that was my first android experience..anyways I have been a loyal apple fanboy..but I can't say the same when new iphone will thing that set me back was how can apple expect us to use a map which is like way old..when we have been using the updated maps on previous versions...its like going back instead of moving forward..

Apple is like every other Empire that came before them, they have reached the peak, now they are on the decline. There is only so much "innovation" until something new... The iPhone 5 is merely the iPhone 2G in a different package, well, not so different.
