iPhone 5 gets gesture control touchpad button

A leaked photo from inside an Apple production factory points to a thinner bezel and new control button

Apple iPhone 5 gesture control touchpad and bezel slimming rumours have been rife, and until now there's been nothing to back it up. This photo from Tinhte, leaked from an Apple iPhone factory, appears to lend weight to the rumour of a 4in screen with a super slim bezel.

The fact that it’s missing a control button at the bottom suggests the rumoured multi-touch gesture control touchpad could be a reality. When even an Apple mouse comes with a touchpad, it makes sense to include it on the flagship iPhone 5. With rumours of pre-orders starting on 30th September for an 7th October release, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
