A photograph that allegedly shows a production line at iPhone component supplier Wintek has emerged on the web.

The workers pictured in the snaps, which were discovered by Vietnamese website Tinhte, appear to be handling display components and it is claimed that the parts in question belong to the iPhone 5.
