What is claimed to be a genuine iPhone 5 has been created by someone who sourced individual parts from Apple's production line, reports ilab (via Venturebeat).

The constructed device doesn't seem to look all that different from the iPhone 4, with the new silver back and 19-pin port the most striking. The headphone jack is also found at the base of the unit.

A larger screen is also rumoured.

Apple is expected to announce its new iPhone - and perhaps the iPad mini - on September 12, reports iMore.
