  • Latest Pictures of Purported Next-Gen iPhone Show a Closer Look at its Back Panel


    Pictures claiming to show the back panel of Apple’s anticipated “iPhone 6” are consistent with previous parts, showing a redesigned metal frame with space for a lock button on the upper right side. The picture part claimed to be Apple’s next-gen iPhone was first highlighted by the folks over at Nowhereelse.fr. Much like previous parts shown online it appears to be an entirely metal back panel, eschewing the glass strips found at the top and bottom of the rear of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, but still keeping separation lines near those points.

    The part also has holes for elongated volume buttons and a mute switch on the left side of the device, while a SIM card slot is found on the right side. In addition, the parts appear to show that the lock button has been moved from the top of the handset to the upper right side, a detail that appears to be consistent with earlier rumors. The hole for the camera flash in the latest part is circular and not oval-shaped, potentially suggesting that Apple could be planning to either improve or abandon the “True Tone” flash effect that it introduced with the iPhone 5S. That’s consistent with earlier leaks which claimed to show Apple’s next-gen iPhone.



    The Apple logo on the back panel shown is also cut out, a detail that was found on an alleged “iPhone 6” panel revealed last month. The second-gen iPad mini was found to have a similar feature when parts for the tablet first leaked in August 2013, on the final product, Apple ultimately embedded a piece of metal that serves as a radio-transparent window.

    The Cupertino California company is expected to announce a 4.7-inch iPhone and possibly a 5.5-inch version, later this year as part of the company’s annual refresh cycle. If the company sticks with its usual release pattern, the next iPhone, which is set to debut in September, would arrive alongside the public release of iOS 8.

      The different indention on the lower left corner appear to house the 3.5 mm jack that so many still think will be removed. Personally, I don't know that it will be removed, not yet anyway. You never know, I could be wrong. Guess we'll see.

      Personally, I enjoy the ability to charge my phone and use headphones at the same time. If they do this it would be so ridiculous that I would either get a different phone the next time I upgrade or a separate music player. Plus, these photos of the metal housing look very ugly anyway, unless they're wrong about the removal of the glass edges.

      Removing the jack isn't going to save that much space, and honestly a digital connection (like USB headphones) isn't going to make a difference on your phone, you won't notice it!
