With WWDC 2012 (Apple's premier yearly event) coming up (next week from the 11th through 15th), there's no shortage of rumors about what will come of it. Focusing on Developers and Apps? A new iPhone? Twelve variations of the iPad 6? If we're lucky, some of these rumors are attached to pictures. While they don't necessarily count as proof that the rumor is truth, it does at least stir the pot up a little bit.
And lucky is exactly what we are, since 9to5Mac has managed to acquire a few snapshots of what looks like the latest iPhone casing.
As seen above, there will be both black and white variations. The back casing itself seems metallic, which is new to the iPhone. Near the bottom, there's also a smaller connector port, in contrast to the larger one that Apple currently uses. The audio jack has been relocated to the bottom right, and there is now a small gap between the camera lens and the LED flash.
Along with these cases, 9to5Mac also has a few photos of the screens, backs, and frames. Be sure to check out the source link below for more snapshots.

The release date rumor for the new Apple iPhone 5 is proposed for late September to early October 2011. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S are slated to be released at the same time. At the very least, there will be an iPhone 4S released this fall, and the iPhone 5 could be delayed until mid-2012.
There are a lot of rumored upgrades and features to look forward to with the new Apple iPhone 5 cell phone.
- Curved Glass Display.
- 8 Mega-Pixel Camera with a Dual-LED Display.
- A5 Dual-Core Processor.
- Worldphone Design.
- 4G LTE iPhone.
- Voice Recognition.
- Glasses-free 3D.
The iPhone 4S cell phone will also have a few possible upgrades of its own.
- Minor cosmetic changes.
- Better front and rear facing cameras.
- A5 Dual-Core processor.
- HSPA+ Support (Not exactly LTE+, but will be established as a 4G cell phone by carries like AT&T).
- Addition of Sprint, T-Mobile and China mobile carriers.
September / October is coming up fast with the new release for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S cell phone. With many Andorid powered cell phones taking up market share, Apple better come up with something good for the iPhone 5.

When will the new iPhone 5 be released by Apple? Sooner than you think with iPhone 5 and iPad 2 designs submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) this morning. The new iPhone 5 and iPad 2 patents suggest they will be slimmer, more powerful, battery efficient, power saving, and possible touch screen redesign.
"In many cases, the size of a portable electronic device can be limited by the size of the operational components used therein..." the application reads. "As such, there can be a desire to make these operational components smaller, thinner, more cost effective, and more power efficient, while maintaining or increasing their functionality to perform operations."
“Apple's proposed invention would have conductive nodes placed on a surface opposite a touch panel or display. The two surfaces would be in close proximity, which would allow conductive electrodes and conductive nodes to sense fingertips on the touchable surface.”
Some other additions could be made with the iPhone 5, including antenna adjustment to alleviate the death grip reception problem, possibly ditching the “Home Button” at the bottom of the screen, glass that is non-smudge and crack resistant, more memory (64GB and up), 4G capabilities, and possible Bluetooth 3.0. We also have the possibility of one chip including multi-band GSM, CDMA, and LTE technology to eliminate Apple making two different phones for Verizon and AT&T and just make one compatible for both cell phone networks.
