    First there is the disappointing news that the battery in the Iphone 6 might be only 1820 mAh. Then we have a rash of Samsung ads, callng iphone users, "wall huggers". Apple responds with a clandestine leak, from "supply channels", in China, stating that the battery will be around 2100mAh. A significant increase.

    Earlier, we heard disparaging remarks about the bezel size being huge, then suddenly we get a video of the front plate of the iphone 6, showing almost no side bezel and significantly smaller head and chin bezels compared to the Iphone 5S.

    Hey, I like leaks, the same as everyone else. I guess Apple will still keep the same game plan. It's worked in the past to gin up excitement for the launch.

    Personally I could care less about the leaks.

    Sept 9th is all I care about.

    Agree with this a thousand times over. Something about dealing with REALITY sounds awesome.

    You need to relax as the 6 is still a good way down the road.

    At the 36 second mark, he holds up the new front plate and a 5S and you can see how much smaller the bezels are in the Iphone 6.

    Hmm I think you're right. I'm dumb and haven't noticed this at all. Nice catch.

    This is nothing new, Apple have been known to leak things in the past. Steve Jobs himself once said "isn't it funny a ship that leaks from the top"

    Here you go. Excuse the quality it's from my iPhone.

    Bingo (minus the being able to care less part). Why pay attention to and more importantly try to analyze or figure out the leaks (beyond perhaps some sort of entertainment purposes, if those might even apply somehow) when reality is what really matters and will be revealed when Apple reveals it themselves.

    I agree with this. Slightly over a month from now we'll know for sure.

    In reference to the battery I see that Apple measures by efficiency and synergy of both software & hardware combined not by the mAh like Android device makers do. I mean what good would a 3000mAh do if the OS and display drain all battery juic inefficiently.

    Apple devices have lower mAh batteries but their efficiency make up for the difference.

    And what makes you think it's Apple that's doing it?

    Oh that who knows. I'm sure the PR guys are smart enough to play such strategies it has been done before and again in other fields to use deception, or make peoples perceptions of something be altered (politicians, military leaders, cultural-movement leaders), and why not PR executives :D

    I wonder if Apple puts out leaks? just to see how the public would react to a 4.7 and 5.5 inch iphone?? Lol

    Whoever thought up the "iPhone left in the bar" scenario is in the Leakers Hall Of Fame!!

    Hey Apple: We know you're leaking the stuff. We like the game. Keep them coming !!

    They never leaked the iPhone and most certainly didn't leak the iPhone 5c as people had gotten the wrong impression about that phone which Tim Cook actualit had to explain during that teleconference thingy,

    (i'm not one of the ppl who want thicker phones with more battery, but I just had to respond)

    While iOS may be more battery efficient then other OS's, a bigger battery is a bigger battery. So stuff as much battery inside the damn phone without compromizing on other things (like weight and thickness).

    Why does mine die with half a day of heavy cellular data use then?
    Your rationale has holes in it. If Apple's 'efficiency' was coupled with a bigger battery, then that would be good no?

    Gotta be in it to win it
    Associate with an s5 must recharge before the end of the day. If bigger batteries are better then said friend would not have to carry a charger around.

    Heavy cellular use does not deplete my 5s battery and it would last at least 36 hours on normal usage.
