Short version: can you help me to identify if this is a 6 or 6S? Is it possible?


Long version - I dropped my 6S on the street the other day. Idiot, I know. This is a picture of a phone handed in to the local lost property office, in what looks like the same case. I went along, but it wasn't mine. However, I'm now going a bit crazy and wondering if the one I saw at lost property is really the one in the picture. They've intentionally covered the IMEI number, but is there any other way to tell if it's an 'S'? Thanks!

I think that's a 6. The 6 has kind of a ring in side the lens, whereas the 6S doesn't show that easy.

If you can get a closer picture of the lens I can tell you easily.

The iPhone 6s will have the letter S in a box directly under the iPhone name. This can be seen in the photo that DM villain posted, look at the two phones to the far right and you can see the letter S in the box under the title iPhone 6.
