    Several comparison photos and videos have already depicted physical iPhone 6 mockups next to a range of devices, including the iPhone 5s, but a new video from Macitynet has a highly detailed comparison of a good quality iPhone 6 mockup next to Apple's iPhone 5s, demonstrating all of the prospective design differences from multiple angles.

    As can be seen in the video, the iPhone 6 mockup appears to be much thinner than the iPhone 5s. Based on design drawings, the mockup measures in at 7mm thick, while the iPhone 5s is a good bit thicker at 7.6mm. It is, of course, taller and wider as well, due to the larger 4.7-inch display.

    The mockup also has iPod touch-style curved edges, which contrast the distinct corners of the iPhone 5s, and it has also adopted the microphone holes and the rectangular volume buttons of the iPod touch. Rumors have suggested the iPhone 6 could include a repositioned sleep/wake button on the right side of the device, which is also visible on the mockup. There's also a redesigned circular flash that replaces the pill-shaped flash of the iPhone 5s, which suggests the possibility that Apple has found a way to combine its existing dual-LED True Tone flash into a single LED.

    In addition to today's video, various images and videos have depicted iPhone 6 mockups compared to a several other devices, including Apple's iPod touch and the Samsung Galaxy S5, giving us an idea of what Apple's 4.7-inch device might look like when it is released. Printable 3D plans have also been made available, allowing users to 3D print their own 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 mockups.

    It is important to note that all of the mockups that we've seen have largely been based on the same set of design drawings published in a March issue of Japanese magazine MacFan and it remains unclear whether those schematics are representative of the true design of the iPhone 6.

    Apple is expected to launch the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 in the fall, possibly as early as September. A larger 5.5-inch version may follow a few months later, debuting at the end of the year or in early 2015. Rumors have suggested the devices will include an upgraded processor and an improved camera, in addition to a fully redesigned body.

    Can't wait to buy one this year! It's going to be so funny though if the actual product is totally different. :D

    MacRumors should double down on mockup posts.

    A mockup a day, keeps the lack of good rumors away.

    Make it stop. I just want this to stop.

    Is our society that much into conspicuous consumption?

    MockupRumors is alive and kicking!

    But seriously, for reals, how many of these mockups are news?

    0. None. Zilch.

    So this is why Apple chooses certain music for their videos…...

    Glad I just bought a Galaxy S5. Tired of waiting on Apple and 4.7 isn't a great size anyways.

    Hey MR,

    Do you get the idea that we are done with mocked up iPhone6 info or repeating the
    same stuff with different words?

    Only thing left to do is waiting for the real thing(s) to come out.

    Enough of the 4.7" That's the boring barely any difference change.

    Someone needs to make a 5.5" of these samples.

    i like it but i'm going to agree with several past comments. don't worry about making it so damn thin. i, and many others would rather have better battery life than the thinnest phone possible.

    I'm going to need to see that mockup next to a banana to truly get a feel for the size.

    Imagine the amount of time and effort these people waste producing 'best-guess' mockups of something that will be here in the near future... They could probably have designed some fancy (original) gadget themselves by now. :confused:

    Can you just let us know when there's a mockup that isn't based on the same specs as the last 20 mockups?

    What is so wrong with being surprised and letting Apple showcase the new iPhone instead of all these rumors? It seems like we have already seen the next iPhone by the time it is announced.

    could you please post a video of your Galaxy S5 compared to an iPhone 6 mockup?

    I'm really hoping that if a bigger phone is in the future, that they do more with the extra real estate than just give us another row. I know widgets annoy some people but I enjoy very much having current weather be the first thing I see when opening my jailbroken 5s.

    Also, I really hope Apple is just laughing at all the drama created from rumors. All these people angry at an unannounced phone that is "delayed", or frustrations at a price increase, *sigh.
