Chinese factory workers leak iPhone 5S photos
A blog on Chinese website sjbbs.zol.com.cn has revealed exclusive preproduction photos of Apple’s up and coming iPhone 5S, which allegedly emanate from one of China’s Foxconn facilities.
For those of you that haven’t heard of them Foxconn is the world’s largest contract electronic manufacturer who amongst other things assembles the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Amazon’s Kindle, Sony’s PlayStation3 and Nintendo’s Wii U.
Foxconn is a multinational corporation with large facilities in thirteen Chinese cities, in addition to many other countries around the world, and remarkably it’s estimated that Foxconn assemble 40 percent of all consumer electronics devices sold worldwide.
Some of the photos leaked online show factory workers in clean environment conditions and those shown below include close-ups of partially assembled devices.
Allegedly the iPhone 5S will have an inbuilt fingerprint sensor, a faster processor, and improved higher resolution camera with a more powerful LED flash.

"That looks like a 4... no, wait... 5? Wow - lookee - a new 5S!"
I can't believe you narrow-minded cynics can't see how incredibly useful THAT will be!

"Help! I've just put out a serious kitchen-fire but I've burned my hands - send an ambulance!"
Sir, that's a new Apple iPhone with fingerprint ID. We won't accept your call as legitimate without fingerprint ID and activation.
"My hands are too badly burned!!"
Sorry, sir, Sony might sue us if we allowed someone to mod their iPhone and use it. It sounds like you need Applie Tech Support first. Shall I connect you? It's only $10... You DO have DRM turned on, right? We wouldn't want to offend MPAA or RIAA, just in case they see files stores on your iPhone that they don't authorize.
Once upon a time...
...we were only worried about nukes and offending Coca-Cola.
