On the ground in Shenzhen Airport!!

I am hiding in a cargo container with a peep hole, trying to see if any pallets of finished Iphones are being loaded. So far, nothing, but I will be here for the next 26 days!!

Ok then, there's been one rumour.

A quote: "The external camera ring also makes an appearance once again, and may indicate that at least one iPhone 6 model may have a protruding lens. To this point, leaked design drawings, mockups, and rumors have pointed to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 having a protruding rear lens, while reports have pointed to a flush rear camera for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6."

For me it's not an issue.

I think most people are just worrying about the fact that it will wobble a little if it's placed on a table.

Am I the only one hoping that every leak is wrong? I think all these "leaks" of pictures of the iPhone 6 are absolutely hideous because of those large antennas and that pertruding camera!! I think these leaks are all bs to make people think that people actually have info on the iPhone 6. I think apple will give a us a thin beautiful bigger phone, that none of us expected.

Why do you think Apple has the smartest people and every other company, Microsoft, Sony, Samsung, HTC, the list goes on and on and on.
And that list contains all the people who actually R&D and Make much of what Apple uses, why do you think they are all average?

Never said all of them are. Average consumer is not among the smartest people in the world. All companies have highly intelligent people working for them. Apple has highly intelligent people working for them, and in charge, and their entire philosophy is superior. Microsoft released metro windows 8, in other words they have really stupid people working for them and/or in charge. Google thinks you should be able to order a pizza with your watch (while your phone is in your pocket) with Android Wear, in other words they have really stupid people working for them and/or in charge.

I will had it to Apple for removing swiping in the finder though. That was of ample lack of intelligence. Just not as great as other companies still.

I wish I had the time back that I wasted reading this response.

I've always had this question, and I'm sorry if it's a dumb one... But when they start mass production, it's usually before the GM of the new iOS is released... How do they still manage to load it onto the phones that were made before the software was done being built??

i have an itouch 5th gen and i'd like to complain about the protruding camera. if the device is laying flat and you try typing or using the touch screen, it wobbles. poor design choice.

I just really really wish that iPhone 6 has 2gb of RAM (or more). I've been upgrading my phone annually for 5 years now and I intend to stick with my next upgrade for 2-3 years. That would be impossible with a 1gb RAM device as the Safari tab reloading (wiping clean anything you've typed in any web form) is already driving me up the goddamn wall.

I believe the phones are not flashed and packaged until the weeks leading up to the release.

Clever and Stupid are tricky terms.

I think many things Apple do are stupid and dumb.
Making a GIANT all in one PC for the desktop, then making it so thin it run hot. (iMac's have always run hot) Due to an issue, probably with this design, prone to yellow screens, and also due to this design you cannot fit a highish end GPU in them as there is no way to get the heat out.

That's dumb in my books. Crippling a desktop computer for a reduction in thickness no one would care about.

Stereo speakers right next to each other on one side on their high end premium tablet. That's dumb.

No flash unit so the tablet can't take pictures in dimply lit environments, that's dumb.

A mac pro that you can't add things into but have to have it all trailing with multiple box's and wires all over the place, that's dumb.

As you see, my version of dumb, may be different to your version of dumb.

Apple's biggest and continual negative for me, is that they continue to make, how it looks, more important that how it performs.

Me too. But wouldn't the liquidmetal bands short out the antennas?

The GM is probably ready. Internally, Apple are one, two or possibly three builds ahead of everyone.

For all the people who think it's to late for mass production: Foxconn even had a production volume of 500k per day last year for the 5s. So it's save to say they can also make 500k iPhone 6's per day, probably more.
35 days till release - 15-20 millions of iPhone 6's.

The GM is done weeks before it's released to developers.

Any major bugs found in the software between then and launch are fixed in iOS 8.0.1 shortly after launch.

For you, sure. I'll gladly spend the $200-$250 + the money I get from selling my 5S for a bigger screen.
