And new information about the upcoming iPhone 5 continues to trickle out onto the Internet. This time, as in most cases, the news came from Asia. According to recent reports, the new iPhone 5 will be equipped with a Nano SIM tray and a smaller Home button.
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute has adopted Apple's Nano SIM as a manufacturing standard since June 1. The new Nano SIM is 40% smaller than its predecessor, the Micro SIM. Development testing has already begun and in the near future it will replace the version of the previous generation SIM cards.
As for the buttons, the "Home" button has decreased by 0.3 mm in diameter, the screen on / off button has become thinner and darker, as well as the vibration mode slider. But the volume switches retained their size and only changed their color to dark gray.
Phone repair company SmartPhone Medic decided to compare the Nano SIM and Micro SIM trays and buttons and switches from the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 / 4S. You can see all this in the video prepared by these guys.
