Following its leak of photos showing the iPhone 6 logic board that have revealed the device's NFC chip and 16 GB of storage, luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk [Instagram page] has now shared some photos and a video showing the device in operation and booting to a black screen requesting the user to connect the device to iTunes.

Feld & Volk says it has been able to piece together this iPhone from various components it has obtained as part of its effort to build its own luxury version of the iPhone 6 for its customers, and remarkably enough, the device is at least capable of turning on.

While it seems surprising that a functional iPhone 6 could be built from individual components, Feld & Volk has demonstrated that it has been able to get its hands on rare parts, and thus it is possible they may have acquired everything necessary to build the device.

The company received two letters from Apple shortly thereafter.

1. A cease and desist.
2. Questions about how they solved the problem with the XXXXX manufacturing step.

Looks legit. But the display resolution seems to be worse compared to the 5s and the iTunes logos aren't the same and a strange gear?!
Perhaps they used not the real display panel and/or this iPhone 6 is not running iOS (used just another CPU?)? At the end of the video when the 'connect to iTunes' screen is shown the lightning connector does not start at the bottom of the display like on the 5s.. who knows :rolleyes:

That iPhone 6 screen looks incredibly bright in comparison to the iPhone 5...

Honestly... who the hell cares?!? Good grief in a few short months this phone will be everywhere. Don't get all this geeking out over this part or that part or whether someone can turn on a makeshift iPhone or not, etc. As William Shatner once famously said "Come on people, get a life!".

I have to say, it looks good. I thought I wouldn't like it, based on the leaked parts, but, seeing it in the hand, it looks good.

Very interesting. I don't love the design, I liked the box design, but nothing stays the same forever.

Annoying music though!
