iPhone 6 mock-up gives us a real look at all the rumours
A mocked-up version of what the iPhone 6 design could look like has appeared online.
Although this claims to be a iPhone 6 dummy, we’re not sure it’s the real deal at all. Instead it’s more likely that the plastic replica has just been put together from all the leaked information and schematics we’ve seen to date.
As you can see in the video below, the dummy features the larger, alleged 4.7-inch screen size and slimline iPod Touch aping profile.
A recent purported iPhone 6 case leak suggested that the entire iPhone 6 and the rubber case would fit inside the profile of the iPhone 5S, which is a major side reduction from the already slim current models.
According to rumours, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a body just 6mm thick, down from the 7.6mm iPhone 5S and 8.97mm iPhone 5C.
The more rounded edges are also tipped to make the cut, taking styling influences from the iPod Touch and the iPad mini along with the thinner, elongated volume buttons.
Another alleged dummy emerged earlier this week, also boasting the same features as this featured mock-up.
Both of these dummies feature the old style single flash featured in the iPhone 5 and previous models. If Apple chooses to downgrade the flash from the TrueTone dual LED option introduced with the iPhone 5S, we’d be very surprised.
Some rumours initially suggested that the iPhone 6 would come with a slightly protruding rear camera, but sources suggest that this has since been modified to create a flat rear casing for the 2014 flagship.
The iPhone 6 launch is heavily expected to occur in September, with the phone arriving alongside the iWatch and a brand new mobile OS, iOS 8.
iOS 8 itself is expected to be unveiled at WWDC in June along with the OS X Mavericks follow-on.
Apple’s upcoming mobile OS is tipped to be health-centric and feature a new HealthBook app designed to monitor your wellbeing and activity.
