iPhone 6 leaks running iOS 8, looks like the real deal

iPhone 6 leak

The iPhone 6 has made yet another premature appearance, with latest leaks showing an official looking handset running an early build of iOS 8.

The subject of endless rumours and countless leaks in recent weeks and months, the latest iPhone 6 tease looks to be the real deal. The handset is shown from both the front and the back, as well as with Apple’s new operating system on board.

Fitting with recent leaks, the latest look at the claimed iPhone 6 shows a slimline handset with a smoother, more rounded edged design.

Large antennas break up the sleek brushed metal design, seemingly to ensure the phone does not suffer the same signal loss issues as the iPhone 4 – ‘just don’t hold it that way’.

Surfacing courtesy of TMZ, the gossip website has claimed the handset in question was “smuggled out of a Foxconn factory in China,” where the iPhone 6 is currently being manufactured.

They added that the phone had been supplied by a friend of a Foxconn employee who worked in the company’s hardware department, helping manufacturer the iPhone 6 bodies.

Although showing little new, the latest iPhone 6 leaks backs up past teases, adding backing to the widely expected design revisions from Apple.

The black menu box shown on the phone appears to be one of the new iOS 8 additions, with the four-way navigation shortcut potentially acting as an easier way to control the larger handset with one hand.

Expected to boast a 4.7-inch display, up on the iPhone 5S’ existing 4-inch form, the iPhone 6 has been tipped for a September 9 unveiling, with a release to follow on September 19.

Looks fake the 13 on the calendar is in the classic android font and the safari icon looks wrong plus the wallpaper isn't right either and the back icon is sane as android

I hope this is not real. The back looks a total mess. Is that white bathroom silicone sealant to waterproof the camera lens? The sim slot positioning looks different in the two pics, is not centred as in current model and the finish is not flush with the case. The camera lens is also protruding.

The screen looks like it is "sunk in" rather than being on the surface but perhaps its just an illusion.

The design is simply not clean enough to be Apple. Too many compromises to be real.

How do people expect us to think this is real? Such a MEGA design drop from the 5. Even the iPhone 4's prettier than this. I don't at all believe this us the next iPhone. Too lowly for apple's design ethos & direction.

That's exactly what I've been saying.

The black box menu? That is in the accessibility settings where it has always been. It's not new.

It's an android clone. Let's not get our panties in a bunch.

Really? As Victor said, people who believe this is real are quite frankly, dumb. What a title as well. "looks like the real deal". Ha.

Funny how the writer did not know something so simple. This is typical of internet journalism. As for this moron, he keeps deleting my critique. He has not testicles. I will keep posting. He cannot win this one.

Funny how the writer did not know that. The article is typical of modern internet journalism. Most of the work is copy and paste from other articles.
Show some testicles. Deleting a critique is not the hallmark of a real man.

Comments from new users are pre-moderated, hence why they didn't appear straightaway.
