Photos of alleged Home button parts for both iPhone 6 models surface

iPhone 6 back part (Evasi0nJailbreak 003)

A new set of photos depicting alleged Home button components for the iPhone 6 surfaced this morning, courtesy of our friends over at While we have seen parts like these before, these are particularly interesting for a couple of reasons.

The first is that they supposedly belong to both the 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models, which is significant because we’ve seen far less supply chain evidence of the latter, as it’s been rumored to be delayed. And the second is that they feature all-new designs…

iPhone-6-iPhone-Air-Touch-IDAs you can see, the flex cables for both next-gen iPhone models are starkly different than that of the iPhone 5s, although you can recognize many of the same pieces. Also worth noting is that refers to the 5.5-inch model as the ‘iPhone Air.’

Leaks and rumors for the iPhone 6 continue to ricochet as we approach the expected fall unveiling. The latest report pegs the event for September, with the launch coming in October. Such a waiting period is unusual, but not unprecedented for Apple.

In addition to larger, higher resolution displays, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a new hardware design and several internal improvements including an A8 chip, enhanced cameras, and a handful of new sensors for tracking various elements and activities.
