WSJ: Sapphire display exclusive to “high-end” models of iPhone 6

  When rumors first began swirling about sapphire glass displays on the iPhone 6, some reported that all new models would feature the material, while others said only certain models would, with some reports even saying Apple scraped the plan altogether. Today, The Wall Street Journal believes they know what’s going on, as a report released…

Leaked iPhone 6 LCD backlight confirms 4.7-inch display? [Rumor]

A freshly leaked iPhone 6 LCD blacklight panel picked up by Nowhereeelse.fr may have confirmed that Apple’s next iPhone will feature a 4.7-inch display. The images show an LCD backlight, which when compared to an iPhone 5s backlight is noticeably larger, purportedly with dimensions matching the rumored 4.7-inch display. The panel’s connector has been…

Leaked iPhone 6 case suggests 4.7-inch screen and thinner form factor

Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy has published a hands on video of a leaked iPhone 6 case. The video shows off a pink gel case, which Hilsenteger apparently acquired with the help of Sonny Dickson, an influential insider who brought us very accurate revelations concerning the iPhone 5s and the 5c last year. It’s this connection that gives today’s leak…

iPhone 6 manufacturing images reveal 4.7-inch screen [Rumor]

Photos released from Nowhereelese.fr appear to show manufacturing moulds of the iPhone 6 that would suggest a 4.7-inch form factor. The photos offered give iPhone measurements of 64mm x 138mm (roughly). A superimposed iPhone 5s image reveals that the mould would house a device with a 4.7-inch display, arguably confirming rumors that the iPhone 6 will…

iPhone 6 renderings created using leaked schematics

A set of awesome renderings has been created based on leaked schematics of the iPhone 6. Last month schematics were obtained from Japanese publisher MacFan that detailed designs for two brand new iPhone models, a 4.7-inch device and a 5.7 inch device. We have no way of determining whether or not these schematics do represent a future Apple device(s),…

What a bigger iPhone would mean for developers

Rumors of a bigger iPhone have been around almost since after the original was announced back in 2007. While we got a bumped screen size with the iPhone 5 to the now standard 4-inch Retina display, there are rumors that the iPhone could get even bigger, with as big a display as 5.7-inch (which I don’t see happening). If you remember before the iPhone 5 was…

What size screen should the next iPhone have? [poll]

We’ve been hearing it for years: Apple’s next iPhone will have a bigger screen. Only once has the rumor come true, and that was with the iPhone 5. Sadly, unlike what people expected, it was made longer, and not wider. Apple argues that it’s the perfect size for one-handed use, which is all well and good, but a lot of us like using both hands to use a…

The iPhone 6 must have a bigger screen [Editorial]

There, I said it. The iPhone needs a bigger screen. I know it, you know it, everybody knows it. Samsung knows it, Motorola knows it, Sony knows it. Why doesn’t Apple know it? You’d be forgiven for thinking that I’ve lost the plot, in truth that might well be the case. I certainly believe that years, and I mean years, of staring longingly at the…

iPhone 6 rumored to have improved camera, larger edge-to-edge screen

Is it possible that we will see yet another new screen size for the next iPhone? After five generations of the iPhone keeping the same 3.5 inch display, two years ago Apple finally upgraded the screen to the current 4 inch display found on the iPhone 5, 5c, and 5s. However, if the rumors are true, Apple will once again be changing the screen size after just…
