iphone 6 video

Modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk has posted a video this afternoon of what is believed to be a complete 4.7-inch iPhone 6. The firm, which has demonstrated its ability to get its hands on rare parts in the past, says it constructed the device from leaked parts.

We’ve seen a plethora of these leaked parts over the past few weeks, as Apple suppliers are presumably ramping up next-gen iPhone production ahead of next month’s event. But this is the first time we’ve ever seen the handset wholly assembled, and turned on.

Here’s the clip:

Feld & Volk says it was able to piece together this iPhone from various components it has obtained from sources within Apple’s supply chain. The device clearly turns on, and begins to boot up, but quickly demands that it be connected to iTunes before proceeding.

Apple yesterday sent out invitations to a September 9 media event, where it’s expected to unveil the iPhone 6 and its so-called iWatch. In addition to its larger display, the new iPhone is expected to feature an NFC chip, an A8 processor and a multitude of new sensors.

        Can’t wait for half life 4

    • Don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for the iPhone X

      • Jerwyn Feria

        OMG CAN’T WAIT TILL iOS X Tiger

    • Destiny ikr

    If that would have iOS 8, shouldn’t that iTunes logo be red?

    • Omar Abbasi

      The Operating System was ported from the other iPhone showed in the video, which is iOS 7. (I think)

      • Jonathan

        But iOS 7 doesn’t even support an iPhone 6, including hardware, screen size, etc. So it wouldn’t even work. It’d just act dead. :/

      • Ken

        Usually they don’t install the new firmware till production release. It’s running 7.0

      • VictorMartino

        The iPhone 4 Gizmodo got their hands on was running iOS 4!

      • Tech Freak

        It’s IOS 7 the blue iTunes logo was changed to red in the beta 4 of ios 8

      • pauleebe

        Not sure if that makes sense? iOS 7 can’t be “ported” to newer devices who’s firmware minimum would be iOS 8.

    • sosarozay300

      oh and what about the gear icon that appears before the itunes logo

      • Jonathan

        Another guy below said all testing devices have that kind of gear.

  • Guest

    so what are these parts? NFC chip? etc

  • hkgsulphate

    the design is ugly….cmon

    • You’d still call it beautiful when it goes on sale…

      • Rowan09

        I agree it’s not ugly at all, but people would still buy it and put it in a case.

      • Chang in Charge

        Couldn’t live without one I like the slimmest possible cases but if i didn’t have one my phone would be in pieces.

      • Shakur Ali

        Waiting for 5.5 iPhone 6

    • JayDee917

      It actually looks much prettier here than in previous part leaks. I’m starting to actually like this design.

      • Kurt

        Of course you are lol

    • George Ohnemus

      I think it looks okay other than the protruding camera lens. I want to meet the person at apple that came up with that idea and punch him/her in the face. Can’t wait until my camera lens shatters on the first back-down drop :/

  • sNick

    The quality of the display is dump, or is it just me? fake I guess..

  • Maggot Overlord

    Since iOS 7 Came out you don’t need itunes to first boot

  • Virus

    Fake boot up is probably just a picture on a cheap Android

    • Yeah, have you ever noticed about the GoPhone 6? Wonderful clones…

  • Tom

    I think it’s fake because iTunes’ icon is still blue and not red…

    • Its only Red with the new iTunes.. This board does not have a real/updated OS installed so it defaults to the old icon…

  • William Melendez

    That black though , looks beautiful ! Black iPhones , love them !

  • Marcinoo16

    fake, pause at 0:56 and look at icon of lighting cable, it didn’t start at bottom of the screen like it does on 5s

    • JayDee917

      Good eye! Probably means that the image on the “6” is a centered pic of the 5s’ image.

      • Not Good enough.. The reflection of the light in the room seen over that image and the glass so its pretty fair to say this is a real image

      • JayDee917

        No ones saying the image isn’t being displayed from the LCD on the 6. But if this was an authentic iPhone, don’t you think Apple would have optimized the image to fit the new iPhone’s screen size?

      • Not if the said operating system does not exist. It doesn’t boot because of that fact. This is also why iTunes has no idea what to do with the device connected to it. Its just a place holder and doesn’t matter if its centered or level or anything lol…

    • Jonathan

      That’s because the screen is larger than the 5s, so it centers it. That’s probably how it will treat 3rd party apps until they’re optimized for the bigger screen.

  • Melvco

    I can understand the skepticism here, but Field & Volk isn’t in the business of creating fake iPhone 6 videos. I just don’t see what it would stand to gain from a stunt like that outside of maybe a few extra visitors on social media.

    • Jose Gonzalez

      Wouldn’t this fall somewhere under what happened with Gizmodo? By that I mean them possibly leaking the phone ahead of time, if it’s real of course. Wouldn’t Apple do something about this?

      • Melvco

        Slightly different scenario. Gizmodo got its hands on an actual internal test unit that was lost by an Apple engineer, where this was assembled piece by piece from leaked supply chain parts. Good point though, it’ll be interesting to see if there’s any recourse from Apple.

      • Jose Gonzalez

        Oh, ok I see your point. I just find it odd that someone could actually get a hold of these parts. I would think it’d have to be very difficult and costly?

  • Willie

    To me I think it’s just a publicity stunt for their brand. But at least it’s cool to see how an actual iPhone 6 will seemingly look like!

    • Chang in Charge

      seems like cause this is the first time I have heard of this brand

  • Zach Krase

    He should try connecting it with itunes 12.0 in Yosemite

    • I thought about that too but there probably won’t be an .ipsw available for that device in the first place.

  • yildirim

    just a crap..

  • JayDee917

    Although hard to tell from a video, the quality of the hardware looks up to Apple’s standards.

    I didn’t like the phone design initially, but it does look much better painted and assembled.

  • Toma Radu-Petrescu

    Lol, this is clearly fake. Look at the wheel icon at 0:43 .

    • Drake Miller

      All iOS Testing devices show that wheel at start-up.

      • Toma Radu-Petrescu

        Did you ever have a prototype?

      • They probably haven’t but neither have you. All you need is common sense to know that a device with no OS can do anything and nothing is normal about what it does.

      • Toma Radu-Petrescu

        I’m mindfucked already.

      • Drake Miller

        You can see videos on YouTube for a leaked iPad 2 or something like that, it shows a leaked iDevice (which turns out to be real) and when they turn it on, a white wheel would pop up on the screen.

  • DopamineAddicted

    That’s one sexy phone!!!

  • john diaz

    Looks legit.

  • Come on guys. Of course this is fake!

  • Victor

    eww the camera lens look nasty

  • besweeet

    Honestly, the side shots look like a Nokia Lumia 925.

  • Matt

    Guess who just go their invitation to Sept. 9th revoked (if they were invited)

  • Straw hat

    Lol i saw let’s just forget these rumours for now and just wait until september9th!!!

  • Stefano

    It’s beginning to look more and lore like an apple handset. The camera area also looks like it’s less protruding. I just hope the launch handset doesn’t have camera protrusion. Also, the flash hole seems recessed and incomplete. Take a closer look.

  • asdlb4

    There has been so much hype for a 5.5″ phone that if it doesn’t happen or gets delayed I think a lot of die hard Apple fans will feel really let down. I feel like there is almost more enthusiasm for a 5.5″ phone than there is for an iWatch release.

  • Gary LE

    Hope camera is not bulged outwards since it will get damaged if it gets put against a table alot
    for example.

  • sorrento

    The design is really ugly and I hope it won’t be the same. BTW if the sleep button really is beside like most of Phones does….pffffffffffff !!!

  • Oscar Perez

    I like it.

  • Mohammed

    They should change the invite line to”do we really need to say anymore”

  • Jerwyn Feria

    My thoughts was, that Connect To iTunes Logo wasn’t flushed well into the Phone’s Screen. I would had expected it to be like how the iPad is flushed out to fit the Ratio of the screen. Just a hunch that there is a retro fitted iPhone 5c or 5(inexpensive parts or phone for parts) in the device, but we shall never know. 😉
