The leaked iPhone 6 part photos are coming in. And they look interesting.
Per AppleInsider and French web site Nowhereelse.fr, an assortment of part images, some emblazoned with the Apple logo, have surfaced, including more evidence of an embedded rear logo, along with an assortment of internal cables, and what could be a closer look at the ring that will cover the device’s rear camera lens.
Also included is what appears to be an external camera ring, though the likelihood of the next iPhone featuring a protruding lens seems suspect. It’s possible that the component — or all of the parts — could actually be for a next-generation iPod touch, as the current fifth-generation model does feature a protruding lens.
The other parts appear to show mounting brackets for an upcoming Apple device, whether it be an iPhone or iPod. They include a headphone jack hole, support around a home button, as well as a space for a Lightning connector, all of them lacking any electrical components.
While minor, many of the parts pictured on Monday are the closest look yet at some of the smaller components expected to be found in Apple’s next iPhone. Purported “iPhone 6” parts have been regularly leaking online for weeks, as Apple is believed to have begun ramping up production of the handset ahead of an anticipated debut next month.
Most recently, images showing what was claimed to be an assembled 4.7-inch “iPhone 6” display were leaked over the weekend. They showed the screen complete with cover glass, mounting structures and flex cables.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
