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

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.
