Yes.
And this small, seemingly innocuous change will forever transfigure life as we know it.
Whatever you do, do NOT think about the flesh-eating moles.

Who knows?
but, I think there is no smoke without fire. haha!
I guess the case companies have some information or clue about the design.

Few days ago, I saw this posting on Spigen Facebook page regarding iPhone 6.
I think some case manufacturer already start to produce the new case for iPhone6.

Will iPhone 6 be released like this design such as the sleep button on the right side?
That's not the sleep button. It can be programmed to control either the built in laser or invisibility cloak.

It could also be there so the user can quickly change from "kill" to "stun".

I agree with her or him.
I'm 80% sure iPhone will have a sleep button on the side like Galaxy smart devices. I think it's really cool though.

Oh man i would so love to see a smartphone come out with a Peace Now button. You hit it and everyone breaks out the chips and guacamole or whatever. Stun gun tamed for use by the children we all seem to remain any more.

If they still push for the 1 handed use the power button has to be on the side. It would be very difficult, for me anyway, to hit the power button if the power button is kept on the top and the screen size is increased.

We have no clue if its true until the phone is released.
Yes we do. There have been LOTS of clues. You should try reading this one blog I saw about it... it aggregates all the various Mac and Apple rumors and clues out there. I think it's called mac... clues or something?

Like Mac rumors or something? Yeah key word RUMORS. None of that **** is true until apple says it is. Fact of life. Don't believe every thing you read.

That's the one! Mac rumors! So you've heard of it. Great. Now we can all go on discussing what we think is likely to happen based on the clues, leaks, opinions, and rumors available to us. As is the purpose of this site.

EDIT: Sarcasm aside, I don't mean to just target you. I'm just constantly confused by how many people there are on a site called MacRumors who complain any time anyone starts discussing a Mac rumor.

Yes, we don't "know" whether there's a 5.5 inch device, but we can still discuss how we feel about it. Yes we don't know whether there are giant antenna breaks, but we can still look at the information available to us and talk about whether we like it or not. If that's not what someone is interested in, fine - but then maybe go to Macfacts.com?

I like the idea of the Apple logo, on the back, being a notification light!

That would be very helpful for me!
I don't think so. I'm pretty sure it will be just like on the iPads. Possibly it improves WiFi/other signals since they removed the glass plates but that's all. It just looks better :)
And a notification light on the back wouldn't make any sense. You only notice it when your phone is upside-down on a table or something... For me and probably most other people, you would never see the notification light.

I always lay my phone down face down. The lip on the Sedio Surface case keeps the screen slightly elevated and proitected.

I am still betting on a notification light as the back casings I have seen show this Apple Logo being a see through design.;)

Time will tell
