Leaked earphones
New mockup spied and headphones leaked

The rumors about the next-generation iPhone continue to build as we near a rumored September launch date for the device. During IFA in Berlin last week, a mockup of the next generation iPhone turned up on video in the hands of DSM Israel's CEO.
 
The video shows an iPhone with an all-metal back and the new heavily rumored smaller dock connector. If true, that smaller dock connector might as well be an annuity for iPhone accessory makers, as everyone will have to buy new accessories such as docks.
 
Rumors continue to point to an official Apple event on September 12 to unveil a new iPhone and the device is expected to start shipping later in the month.
 
In case you're wondering, GSM Israel laid hands on the phone via an unnamed manufacturer of cases and accessories for the iPhone. It would make sense that an accessory company would have early access to mockups of the next-generation iPhone to allow them to have cases ready when the device launches. In fact, in the past the first real glimpses of iPhone mockups or prototypes did in fact come from accessory makers.
 
Another recently leaked image claims to show the new design of the earphones that will ship with the next-generation iPhone. The earphones have an opening on the side and a small slit in the body for sound rather than having a speaker grill on the front of the earphones. It appears the large side port could be some sort of bass expansion port. It also appears that the headphones are made from one piece of plastic rather than multiple pieces.

Actually, we have had 4+inch screens and 4G for over two years now... But, Welcome to 2010 Apple. Good thing we are copying you 2 years later than you, otherwise it might look bad.

We live in an era where CEO's can retroactively retire.

Why shouldn't Apple be able to proactively claim that everyone is copying ideas and technologies they themselves haven't yet conceived or implemented?

Wait for it, I am sure they are already working on that tech now. ;)

My last iPhone was almost free. I sold my old 16GB 3GS for $250 (added value as it had the older bootrom), and bought a 32GB 4S for $299. It's jailbroken, and I have all the freedom to install just about whatever I want. I get free tethering as well (in fact I'm posting this through MyWi). Does that make you sad? I'm a little sad that I'll have to wait for the Jailbreak for iOS 6 to come out before I can upgrade the OS. There, were both sad now.
