New iPhone parts leaked (photos)
New parts for the iPhone were leaked to YouTube earlier by Global Direct Parts (as they intentionally show in their backdrop). Unfortunately, the video was removed from YouTube by Apple. However, we were able to find a copy of the video (which since has been pulled too) and snag some of the pics that were shown.
