Supposed iPhone 5 Part Leaks, Apple Working On A Slider with Physical Keyboard?
Another supposed iPhone 5 part has appeared on a Chinese website and the blog is claiming that Apple’s next iPhone could actually feature a sliding keyboard.
According to AppleInsider, tw.apple.pro posted a photo of what appears to be a 30-pin dock connector cable from an unreleased iPhone, with the part number 821-1300-02 HF/c1.
The Chinese site also goes on to claim that the recent rumors and indeed leaked parts of an iPhone sporting a 4-inch screen are in fact fake, while opening the possibility of an iPhone with a sliding screen – could Apple really be getting ready to offer a hardware keyboard?
This isn’t the first time tw.apple.pro has claimed an iPhone could get a sliding keyboard. Two weeks ago the same site said that Apple was working on a device that resembles the current iPhone 4, but with a new appendage. As we have mentioned in the past, this particular Chinese blog has had success in the past – they got their hands on the iPhone 4’s screen before Apple announced it.
