With the expected announcement of the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini just under a month away now, rumored parts and pieces of the upcoming devices are flying in from everywhere. The latest? New photos that claim to show the new, smaller dock connector and bottom headphone jack in the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini.

Remember, these are just rumored parts for the next big thing from Cupertino so you'll have to bring your salt shaker when looking at them, but the pictures supposedly show the iPad Mini dock connector on the left and the iPhone 5 dock connector on the right. Strangely, these pictures show the iPad mini's headphone jack as really really really close to the dock connector. Also, the dock connector comes in different colors (black and white) which would presumably mean it'd match the exterior of each device (it already does on the iPhone 4S).

From this close up picture of the purported new dock connector, you can see that there are 8 pins inside the port. Matches up conveniently with the eight contact cable we saw earlier. Expect more and more parts and innards of the rumored iPhone 5 and iPad mini to pop up as we get closer to the September 12th announcement. [iResq via MacRumors]
