Alleged iPhone 6 Back Cover Shown Off in New Photo




Despite a variety of iPhone 6 mockups and case leaks, there haven't been as many part leaks for the iPhone 6 outside of what could be the front panel of the device, the backlight panel and the possible batteries. Now, Macfixit Australia has obtained what looks to be the back cover for the 4.7-inch silver iPhone 6.

Like many of the mockups, this photo also includes the antenna breaks near the top and bottom portions of the back. It also appears to have a green film on top of it, with silver poking through near the camera and flash holes near the top, indicating that this could be the white / silver iPhone 6. The cover also appears to be made out of a thin metal and includes clear cutouts for the camera and flash, unlike a lot of mockups, which also adds some weight to its possible authenticity.

The cover also appears to have the much-rumored round corners, which are similar to the design of the iPod Touch. This also keeps the iPhone in line with both the iPad Mini and iPad Air, which have more rounded back corners.

Aside from larger 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays, the iPhone 6 is rumored to have an improved A8 processor, an improved camera with optical image stabilization, new backlighting technology and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

I'm all for iPhone rumors, but isn't this like the 10th identical design that's made front page news? We all assume at this point the final design will look like this, and we still don't know if this particular incarnation is a genuine part.

They're saying this one is a genuine part, not a mockup.

So it's green... and it's got a slice in it? I'm really confused as to what I'm looking at.

Looks like a thin case on a dummy. If it was a film then it shouldn't have a camera and flash cutout like that. You can see the cutout for the side volume buttons too.

"Yep"

Even if this isn't it, I'm pretty we can all expect this is pretty much how it'll look.

I'd prefer a better solution than the antenna breaks though. However, it beats the black plastic of both the iPod touch and the cellular iPad.

You know, phones can get *too* thin.... once I start breaking my super-thin phone from just being in my pocket, that will be a huge concern. If they can get it to the thickness of the iPod touch, that's really the thinnest I want. I need a battery in there too you know.

For what? No phone hardware will be mentioned, if any hardware at all. WWDC is all about development.

Nice to see Apple simply doing iterations on design rather then, I don't know, do something risky, innovative and interesting like everyone else?!?!??

Absolutely ugly and plain, looks like a toy, nothing will beat the iPhone 4 design and the build up that led up to it. Apple straight up got lazy and has no new unique ideas left in the tank, mailing this in for the sheeple who will buy it no matter what. Why bother when everyone will buy it.

I personally think they should make it in the shape of a ball so you can play catch while making phone calls.

Leaks get pretty accurate as the release date nears. I'm ready for a new phone. The battery in my 5 has gone through too many cycles.

Instead of making the battery thicker which is of very practical and functional use they are making the bands thick? Hope the beats design hasn't rubbed on them!
