The biggest problem we have seen with the mockups for the iPhone 6 is the weird tape on the antenna breaks. The rear shell was beautifully designed except for the ugly tape across the back of the device. It was rumored that these were actually placeholders for glass that Apple was expected to put on the phone (like the iPhone 5/5s have), but we never expected the company to actually keep the tape on the phone. According to these leaked pictures, Apple is retaining the antenna breaks and coloring them to match to the rear shell.

The iPhone 6 will be announced in less than a month and that means we will see more and more leaked parts. The week has just begun and we have a bunch of photos that show you internal components for the phone. Nowhereelse.fr posted the following pictures that show the Apple logo cutout, circular flash flex cable and external camera ring in addition to many parts.
The iPhone 5s came out with a new pill-shaped flash that had two different colored LED lights inside. This allowed for pictures to have a better white balance and more supported color temperatures. The original mockups for the iPhone 6 showed that Apple would be replacing the pill-shaped design with a circular one. It was feared that they would be returning to the single LED light found on the iPhone 5. One of the leaked pictures by Nowhereelse.fr show the flex cable with a circular, two-tone LED flash. It appears Apple has decided to retain the round shape from the iPhone 5 while incorporating the two different colored LED lights from the iPhone 5s.
With all the rumors that keep coming out for the next-generation iPhone, it is difficult to focus on which ones are legitimate and which ones don’t have a chance. An infographic came out recently on Nowhereelse.fr with the help of other Apple blogs that displayed each rumor with the likelihood that we will see it on the iPhone 6. Not surprisingly, some of the rumors with the highest probability was the larger display, more durable Touch ID and ultra-slim design. Nowhereelse.fr decided to simplify the graphic even further into a minute-long video (embedded below).
Based on the video above and infographic from the other day, the following rumors have greater than 75% chance and will most likely be on the iPhone 6.
- 4.7″ screen size (100%)
- 1704 x 960 screen resolution (75%)
- better front facing camera (75%)
- improved Touch ID sensor (85%)
- over 1GB of RAM (80%)
- ultra slim iPod touch like design (95%)
It is concluded that although we don’t know too much information about the specifics of the iPhone 6, we will likely see an iPhone with a larger display, improved internal components and a complete redesign. Other rumors are lacking evidence, so until we see a glowing Apple logo or wireless charging, these are the rumors that we have.
Although we have been primarily focusing on the iPhone 6, Apple is expected to release two new iPads this year and maybe a third one as well: the 3rd generation iPad mini, sixth generation full-sized iPad and first generation iPad Pro. Martin Hajek, the one responsible for these curved iPhone 6 concepts, has created a new concept idea for the iPad mini 3. We expect the iPad to gain Touch ID this year and potentially recessed buttons, but he wanted to see how it would look if the iPad mini was inspired by the new iPhone 6’s design. He added curved edges to all sides, like the iPhone 6 has. Here are a few pictures, but you should really check out his gallery to see everything.
The iPhone 6 is still two months away from being announced, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing it until then. Last week, pictures of the front panel of the smartphone were posted online and this week a few videos put it through some stress tests. The display is rumored to be changing from Corning Gorilla glass to Sapphire so it will be able to withstand more pressure and stress before breaking. The three videos that show the display undergoing stress tests are posted below, with the final video showing the most damage.
The first video came to us from Sonny Dickson on Monday and shows the front panel being bent. It is difficult to tell how much pressure is being applied and how much stress the panel can actually take. However, it is one of the first stress tests so it is good to see that the screen is quite flexible.
A report released this past week by Mac Otakara said the next-generation iPhone will feature a curved display and curved edges with an all-aluminum rear shell. To help us visualize the rumors, Nowhereelse.fr and Martin Hajek have teamed together to create some new renderings. If these rumors are true, this will most likely be what Apple reveals in September.
Martin Hajek went on to create some 3D renderings on the iPhone 6c. Although there have been a lack of rumors surrounding this device and since Apple has sold less iPhone 5c’s then anticipated, there “c” generation might not be coming back this year.
The 4.7″ iPhone 6 and iPhone 6c are expected to be announced in September and the larger 5.5″ iPhone 6 will be delayed due to production issues until late 2014/early 2015.

MacFan, a Japanese magazine, posted the sketches below of the iPhone 6. These pictures show two different-sized smartphones, which aligns with the rumor that Apple is working on releasing two models. The first one is expected to have a 4.7-inch display and the second one, a 5.5-inch display. According to the images, the devices will be slimmer, flat and bezel-free with a single LED flash and protruding camera (like found on the iPod touch).
These pictures inspired Nowhereelse.fr, a French Apple blog, and Martin Hajek, a graphic designer, to work together and design a very realistic concept for the iPhone 6. If the leaked image above is actually for the iPhone 6, the concept below is likely to be what the iPhone 6 will look like. These designs show an iPhone with rounded corners, a sapphire glass back and a rocker-style volume button.
