Internal layout suggests new shape.

A headphone jack and earpiece components purpoting to belong to the next iteration of Apple's iPhone have appeared online for sale, and the variation from the iPhone 4 and 4S suggests the handset will sport a new external design.

The components, for sale at $US7.71 on SW-Box, differ from the previous iPhone in which the headphone jack is located near the volume buttons and mute switch.

The leaked headphone jack appears to be attached to the earpiece and Wi-Fi components, suggesting enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity with minimal interference and, potentially, a new shape.
