With the launch of the iPhone 5 expected to be exactly one month from now, more pictures of the rumored phone have hit the Web.

IResQ, an Apple repair site that last week put up these pictures of what are believed to be the next iPhone and iPad mini's dock connector and headphone jacks, has put up more pictures of the parts.

But this time, iResQ said it put the dock connector and headphone jack parts into another part that is believed to be used in the sixth generation: the frame. And the company said the two parts fit nearly perfectly.

Rumor roundup: The new iPhone

"One of our technicians was even able to screw the assembly into the pre-aligned screw holes inside of the frame," the company said in a blog post. "All of the threading and screw holes lined up perfectly with the screw holes in then docking port/headphone jack assembly."

Meanwhile, uBreakiFix, another product repair site, also put pictures of anotherĀ supposed iPhone 5 part, in this case being the phone's front panel and screen.

You can see that image over at MacRumors, which notes that although we've seen images of what is believed to be the iPhone 5's front panel, we hadn't yet seen the panel with its screen already built in.

The next iPhone is widely expected to be announced Sept. 12 with pre-sales starting immediately. The phone, though, won't actually launch until Sept. 21, according to various reports.
