These Are The Complete Blueprints For The iPhone 5 [Image]

The only people that really need to know all of the iPhone 5’s dimensions down to the nearest hundredth of a millimeter are case manufacturers, and rabid fanboys that can’t devour enough Apple knowledge. Apple posted the blueprints for the iPhone 5 in the developer center, but for some reason they can be accessed by anyone even if you don’t have an account.

The full high-res blueprints show crazy small details, like the degree of the proximity cone for the camera, and the difference in thickness between the antenna band and the display screen. It’s everything you’d need to know to make your own iPhone 5 case. To access the entire high-res blueprint PDF you can click here.

    These are not even close to being “blueprints,” and they would be incomplete if they were. These are actually just simple “measured drawings” used by case and accessory manufacturers.

    Did anyone else notice that there doesn’t seem to be a measurement for the radius of the corners? Or is my mind playing tricks on me? Also, this should make good practice for modeling in UGNX 8! You can actually get similar drawings for all of the other iPhones, iPads, and iPods at developer.apple.com/resources/cases/.
