A photo has floated onto the Internet that seems to parading around as a flex cable component for the upcoming, smaller 'iPad mini', housing Apple's smaller dock connector, the headphone jack, and home button connector, reports, from MacRumors.

The layout also looks similar to what we've seen from the next-gen iPhone that was seen a few months ago now. iFixit's Kyle Wiens has also thrown his thoughts into the ring, where he's stated that it's consistent with being an Apple component but that he's (obviously) unable to confirm its authenticity.


The part does look suspiciously similar to the next-gen iPhone part, and also carries a part number in the style of Apple's previous iOS-based device flex cable components. The biggest news here, is the headphone jack. It looks like it's being moved from its usual spot of up the top near the power button, to the bottom right next to the dock connector itself. But this again, lines up with previous teases of the next-gen iPhone which sported its headphone jack at the bottom of the device, rather than the top.
