Has anyone come across the pinout of an iPhone 4/4S rear camera module connector?

I found these two schematics one for the [iPhone 4S] and the other for [iPhone 4]. Both connectors can be seen on the board level on the third page. They are designated as J6. The connector pinout can be found on page 19 of each schematic. It seems that the 4S got 6 more pins in the connector. But it does not specify whats the model number. The only info is BB4-PA26-3A and BB4-PA32-3A which I can see how it calls out the 26/32 regular pins, and 4 power pins (power for the LED driver i guess), and I guess it calls out for 3amp specs on the pins. Need to find out the pitch...

  • \$\begingroup\$ Board-to-Board 0.4mm pitch, P= plug (S or R for female), A = ?, 26/32 = number of conductors, 3 = Plating type/option, A=? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Its weird how that site manage its URLs. The folder won't link well. It says that "The directory ./downloads/Apple/Service Manuals / does not exist.", But the text is light on a light background. So its hard to read it. If you will highlight the light box on the left you will see a "Continue" hyperlink. Press on that - and it will take you to a folder with bunch of DPFs. Navigate through the folders to Apple > Service Manuals & Schematics 0 days old > iPhone_4s or iPhone_4 \$\endgroup\$ Aug 6, 2013 at 14:30
