The iPhone 5 has been confirmed via a recent leak, which adds credence to the various leaked components we’ve seen over the past few months.
One of which is the iPhone 5′s purported taller screen, which clocks in at 4 inches according to reports and leaked images. Taiwanese pop star Jimmy Lin has now confirmed the bigger screen – among other rumored features – via sharing images of his “iPhone 5″ with his 13.5 million followers this week on Weibo, a Chinese micro-blogging version of Twitter.
Today I confirmed that the iPhone 5 will be longer and have an aluminum back like the iPad.
While it has a four-inch screen, it’s thinner, though it feels about the same in the hand. The headphone jack has also been moved to the bottom.
As for the dock connector, the iPhone 5 doesn’t use the 30-pin connector, instead changing to a smaller 19-pin connector.
