First Leaked Part of Rumored ‘iPad mini’ Surface

Posted on August 15, 2012 by

French website Nowhereelse.fr posted images of what is believed to be the first leaked part of the long rumored “iPad mini.” The part is a flex cable housing the dock connector, headphone jack and home button connector. The part bears strong resemblance to leaked 6th-generation iPhone parts, and has a part number consistent with Apple’s naming scheme.

Some interesting features of this part are the smaller dock connector and a headphone jack that lines up with the bottom of the device, both of those things have also been rumored to be coming to the next iPhone.

This part could be fake, but if it’s real, we will most likely hear something on September 12 when Apple is expected to announce the next-generation iPhone.
