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.

Per French web site Nowhereelse.fr and Electronista, the part is thought to fit in the anticipated 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model.

We’ve mentioned in a previous post that Apple plans to replace the once venerated pro-level photo management app, Aperture, and presumably iPhoto as well, with an all new application called simply Photos. Now Apple is looking for someone to put it through its paces, and looking no further than its own collective of employees.

There may be some changes to this year’s iPad Air.

Per AppleInsider and French web site Nowhereelse.fr, pictures of a nonfunctioning dummy model iPad Air shows an indented space for two elongated volume buttons, representing a change from the current iPad Air where the buttons protrude. The mockup was first spotlighted on Tuesday by Nowhereelse.fr.

Strangely, the dummy device also lacks a mute/orientation lock switch above the volume buttons, and instead has just a small circular hole. To date, all iPad models have featured a toggle switch above the volume controls, just like every iPhone.

The early iPhone 6 picture leaks continue and they’re churning up some interesting comparisons.

Per Boy Genius Report, Insider Sonny Dickson, who published images of unreleased Apple devices before their launch last year, has now posted new images on Twitter showing the two iPhone 6 models side by side.

In an interesting set of changes, the iPhone 6 phablet has the power button relocated to the right side and slimmer volume rockers. On the back, the 5.5-inch model has the same camera and antenna design as the current 4.7-inch model, including a new camera flash design, while on the front side the only thing different is a new hole next to the FaceTime camera.

Apparently, dreamerJimmy was able to get early shots of the iPhone 5 and 5c handsets before their release, so the source seems reliable.

Per 9to5Mac and French web site Nowhereelse.fr, in the first image, the much thinner bezels of the supposed new device can be clearly seen, to maximise the screen space on the front side. The distance between the Home Button and the display has also been shortened.

It’s the leaked icons that suggest that something interesting is on the way.

Per MacNN, a series of icons that seem to be downloaded from Apple servers whenever someone enters the Storage Management panel, suggesting that Apple is laying the groundwork for the updated software. Visually the icons have been changed to adopt the flat, colorful design of iOS 7.

Apple has yet to issue iOS 7 overhauls for a number of first-party apps, including not just iPhoto and GarageBand, but other important titles like the iWork suite. The company has been racing to fix problems in iOS and update its entire ecosystem, however, and may be putting apps on the backburner. One possibility is that redesigned apps will make their debut at the October 22nd iPad event.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
