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.
