Continuing on with the barrage of iPhone 6 part leaks we’ve seen over the past few weeks, Apple.club.tw today shares a new photo of what is believed to be the front LCD frame of the handset. It looks to be complete with metal shielding, and Home button bracket.
In a complete iPhone, this component would sit in between the front panel and the rear shell, both of which we’ve seen in other leaks. It also contains the all-important LCD panel, and helps sandwich in the battery, logic board, and various other internal pieces… Read More

Several new hi-res photos, and a video, surfaced this morning of what is said to be an actual rear shell of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. The part looks similar to previous leaks, with a cutout Apple logo and thick antenna breaks at the top and bottom.
The photos come from Feld & Volk, a Moscow-based company that sells modified versions of the iPhone. The firm says it came across the shell thanks to its relationship with Apple suppliers, which enables it to get a head start on modifying… Read More

Hot on the heels of this morning’s bend stress test video of an alleged iPhone 6 sapphire cover, comes a clip of a scratch test further showing the part’s durability. YouTuber Marques Brownlee has gotten his hands on an alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 6 cover and put it through its paces.
In the video, Brownlee tries to snap the sapphire cover in half by bending it, but is unable to do so. He also takes a set of keys and even a large folding knife to the component in an effort to scratch the display cover, but again he is unsuccessful. We’ve posted the full video below… Read More

Adding to the recent barrage of iPhone 6 part leaks and physical mockups, several photos popped up online this afternoon showing display covers that allegedly belong to the handset.
The images depict a white and black component, both of which are said to be display glass covers for the smaller (4.7) version of the two new iPhones Apple is expected to launch this fall… Read More

New evidence of the larger iPhone 6 surfaced online this morning. 9to5Mac has posted a pair of images believed to be a display component for Apple’s oft-rumored 5.5-inch smartphone—one of two handsets the company is believed to be launching this fall.
While we’ve seen plenty of case and part leaks for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, physical evidence of the larger model has been far more scarce. These photos, in fact, are said to be the first showing an iPhone 6 component that matches the 5.5-inch device rumors… Read More

Some new photos of alleged iPhone 6 models surfaced this morning, courtesy of Sonny Dickson. We’ve seen several photos of physical mockups to date, but these by far offer the best representation of what Apple’s next smartphone is expected to look like.
It’s believed that the iPhone 6 will come in two display sizes: 4.7 and 5.5-inches, and today’s images show the two variants sitting side by side. This not only give us a good idea of the handset’s design, but it also indicates how the two models will vary in size… Read More

A new set of photos has appeared online this weekend, showing off an alleged iPhone 6 shell. We’ve seen 1 or 2 similar components in the past, but these images give us—by far—the best look at the part, and the best indication of what the device could look like.
In terms of design, this shell appears to match the one we saw back in May almost detail for detail. Note the thick antenna breaks towards the top and bottom of the part, as well as the cutouts for the iSight camera, the round flash, and the rear-facing Apple logo… Read More

While we’ve seen a number of physical mockups and case leaks for the iPhone 6, we haven’t seen very much in the way of actual components. There was the front panel, the tray full of batteries, and this recently-leaked backlight panel, but that’s pretty much it.
We’re adding another part to the pile tonight, though. Macfixit Australia says it has obtained what is believed to be the back cover of an iPhone 6. The site says that it belongs to a 4.7-inch model—one of two rumored to be released this year—and is silver in color… Read More

Given everything we’ve seen thus far, it seems likely that the iPhone 6 is going to come in two flavors: a 4.7-inch model and a 5.5-inch model. Most of the alleged leaked cases and renders that have surfaced in the last few months, however, have just been for the former.
But today, photos of a new case popped up on the web believed to have been made for the 5.5-inch model. Our friends over at Nowhereelse.fr share the images, which show a physical mockup of the alleged handset in the snap-on case, sitting next to a 4.7-inch version… Read More

New renderings of what is believed to be the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 surfaced on the web this weekend. We’ve seen similar drawings before, but this time around the renders have reportedly come straight from primary Apple supplier Foxconn.
The device in the images, which measures 138 x 67mm, lines up with previous information. The design is consistent with the schematic published by MacFan last month, which has since been echoed by multiple cases and dummy units… Read More

I would say ‘spoiler alert,’ but I’m sure it’s far too late for that. Photos of shells and components belonging to Apple’s fifth-generation tablet have been bouncing around the web since January of this year.
But these new images offer an extremely clear look at the so-called iPad 5—perhaps the best we’ve seen thus far. And they give us a really good idea of what we can expect to see from Apple later this month… Read More

Now that Apple has launched its long-rumored fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5s, the next big question is: when will it make it into the iPad? A recent leak indicates we may see it in the new iPad mini this year, but what about the iPad 5?
While there’s no way to concretely answer this question until Apple unveils the tablet, a new video hit the web yesterday that aims to provide some insight. Apparently the 5s’ Touch ID Home button fits perfectly in a front panel for an iPad 5… Read More

Apple’s next-generation full-sized iPad is expected to sport a redesigned casing, similar to that of the iPad mini. It’s said to be lighter and thinner than the iPad 4, with an overall smaller footprint.
And a new video surfaced this weekend that gives us a good idea of just how much the two tablets will differ in size, by comparing the measurements of an alleged iPad 5 shell with its predecessor… Read More

While it’s still unclear if the next-gen iPad mini will sport a Retina display, it seems that it will feature a Touch ID Home button and gold color option. That is, if this pair of leaked photos showing the alleged tablet are to be believed.
The above image, and one we’ve posted right after the break, surfaced on Chinese site DoNews this morning. And as you can see, they show what appears to be a 7.9-inch iPad with a gold-colored shell and Apple’s new fingerprint sensor… Read More

And as with the new iPhones, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. The new mini is said to look a lot like its predecessor, with a Retina display, and the new full-sized iPad should look like, well, this… Read More

You have to love last-minute leaks. Shortly after The Wall Street Journal published a report confirming that the iPhone 5S would indeed sport a built-in fingerprint sensor, another bit of evidence surfaced in favor of the feature.
What you see above is an illustration of what is believed to be an iPhone 5S, running iOS 7 and sporting a silver ring around its Home button. The photo is believed to have been taken from within the handset’s user guide… Read More

So as you can imagine, that makes this next iPhone 5S shell leak rather interesting. Because while we’ve already seen a number of photos and videos of the handset’s rear casing, this particular one has China Compulsory Certificate markings… Read More

We must be getting close to an iPad refresh, because the leaks are becoming more and more prevalent. Hot on the heels of the video that surfaced this morning of an alleged iPad 5 shell, comes a similar clip showcasing a second generation iPad mini.
The clip comes from the same source as the first video, and it claims to show the shell of a next-gen iPad mini along with an iPad 5 shell and current mini for comparison. The two 7.9-inch tablets look very similar, but there’s one notable difference… Read More

With Apple widely expected to unveil two new iPhones next week, folks have been wondering what’s going to happen to the current iPhone 5. Apple typically keeps previous models around to sell at a discount, but it may not have to with a lower-cost ’5C’ in the lineup.
In fact, some pundits believe that Apple is going to discontinue the iPhone 5 later this month. And today comes purported evidence of that theory, with a leaked carrier inventory screenshot showing multiple current-gen iPhones being discontinued on September 28… Read More
