Thanks for picking up on this. Sometimes I feel like digging out my old 1.5 MP digital camera that I bought in 1999, because I believe that it took better pictures than that.

I guess it also doesn't help that the picture had to go through another JPEG encoding round when some website had to add their "Republished by..." watermark to the picture. Why doesn't MacRumors add a "Rebublished by MacRumors" watermark so that I can add a "Republished by MentalFloss" watermark before tweeting the picture, which by then will have become one big JPEG artifact.

I'm fine with it as long as we get some part leaks from non-iOS devices too. When was the last time we saw part leaks for a computer?

iOS devices are computers. But I understand what you mean. I guess the Foxconn employees don't consider New Macs to be worthy enough to leak parts from. Yeah I think more Mac part leaks would be cool but we don't choose what Fxconn employees leak.

The part in bold is the useful thing you said and I agree with that. Having a way to track the type and dates of part leaks would be nice.

I wonder if they'll have this feature in the 6C or if there'll even be a 6C...I enjoy some color in my life.

Well i'm here for "Mac rumours" not "Pictures of iPhone parts 5x a day".

I wouldn't mind if it was on a separate page, I like the majority of the news on the front page, but the bits of iPhone are just both spoiling it and uninterested. Ive seen about mockups, its quite depressing to know exactly how its going to look to be honest months before the keynote.

I had to Google Sasha Grey. Now I get the joke.

Don't call it Touch ID

Apple lost that trademark battle, I'm surprised they haven't been sued yet to stop using the name for the feature.

They should call it the Finger Bang ID sensor.

Yes, but the ones you've seen of Sasha's are likely real parts.

It's not final FINAL yet. Apple is still in the appeal's period. They have until Nov. I believe to convince USPTO their use of the TM is different than Kronos. Barring that they can always license the name just as they did with the iPhone name from Cisco. Or they can change the name like the did when they lost the Rendevouz name, which is now known and Bonjour, of course.

The good news is everything is coming together for a release in a few months
Why would a mod comment on a rumour like this? Is forum moderation separate from the moderation of what goes on the front page? Just wondering...

More allegations not resulting in any arrests or convictions. How sad.

What?

If I were to show anyone in my family the iPhone 6 leaked design it would be a first to them, the only people who know what it looks like are people who seek it out. If you don't want to see it, why seek it out?

Actually goes on "Mac" rumours site for news about the Mac and Apple software, and updates of when iOS beta and software is out and what new deals Apple has or may be signing.

Not for every single Chinese part of the iPhone thats found and 450 different mockups of it. If you want that you should be able to "seek it out" in a separate iPhone section really. I try to scroll past it, it was just a joke about how many bits of this thing I've seen now - who really cares about the touch ID sensor anyway?!? Is anyone drawing any useful information from that at all, in the slightest? If so, maybe they should be Googling Sasha Grey instead.

Nice Article, I also love iPhone. I think everyone focused on its hardness. I want to make the point of its Gorilla Glass being as more flexible.
They wouldn’t do it for less broken screens. It’s beta testing in the so wild. get more details about iPhone6 here http://iphone6update.com/
