IPhone 6S leaks (identical design-wise, most changes are inside)

Recommended Posts

9to5mac_6s8.jpg?w=704&h=469

For fall 2015, Apple is preparing an “S” iPhone upgrade that superficially preserves the exterior designs of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but includes a collection of major internal changes. In May, we reported that this new “iPhone 6S” line would debut this fall with a Force Touch, pressure-sensitive display as one of its marquee features. Now, a proven source familiar with Apple’s supply chain has provided us with the most extensive look yet at Apple’s next iPhone, sharing the first photos of the iPhone 6S’s external metal casing, plus an in-depth look at the new iPhone’s internals. Today, we’re focusing on the exterior of the next iPhone, which appears to refute a number of potential changes that some have speculated were destined for this model.

9to5mac_6s27.jpg?w=315&h=473

1) Identical design to the current iPhone 6 + same thickness/width:

As expected, these photos show that the next-generation iPhone will have a rear design identical to that of the current iPhone, similar to the transition from the iPhone 5 to iPhone 5S. Our images show no noticeable external changes coming from the iPhone 6 — even the Space Gray color has remained light, contrasting with the darker Space Gray Apple Watch — but it is possible that Apple’s final hardware could include additional tweaks.

Good luck spotting any major external differences in size or the position of holes. Our source says that any potential difference in thickness or width on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6-sized device is too minimal to notice, but this does not (yet) rule out rumored changes to the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus body.

2) Different internal mounting structure:

9to5mac_6s19.jpg?w=704&h=469

Despite the identical exterior, many small changes are evident inside the iPhone 6S frame, particularly in the mounting points for the phone’s new logic board and components. The mounting points line up with details we’ve received regarding the logic board, confirming the shell’s authenticity for a new device.

3) No dual-lens camera system:

9to5mac_6s26.jpg?w=704&h=469

Rumors that the iPhone 6S would receive a dual-lens camera system appear to be dashed given the rear shell’s seemingly identical holes for camera, microphone, and LED flash. This doesn’t rule out the possibility that the camera lens won’t protrude on the new model, but two distinct lenses appear to be very unlikely.

4) Antenna lines still present:

Apple recently applied for a patent on a technique to hide the antenna lines on the back of an iPhone with an “anodized metal appearance.” Unless something changes from the casing here, those lines will persist through the iPhone 6S lineup. But there may be some good news regarding NFC antenna performance, a point we’ll discuss further soon.

5) Same connectors, speakers, microphones:

9to5mac_6s8.jpg?w=704&h=469

In the coming days, we’ll be publishing in-depth looks at new internal components and chips coming in the next iPhone, which will reveal new features and enhancements. So, stay tuned for those articles. Meanwhile, below is our full image gallery of the next iPhone’s external shell.

Not a baiting comment at all. Also, if people just want a phone, they wouldn't buy one every year..

Would you say the same thing to people who buy graphics cards every year? 

 

"All you're getting is better performance. You're a moron". 

The thing is with graphics cards, you actually see better performance with higher FPS. iPhones? You get a bigger peen. That's it.

I still would.

I'm still using a 560 so...

For GPUs it might make more sense if you really really use that extra performance, which some people do , while others don't. As far as IPhones go...well, we know exactly how that works...

In the end it's your choice what you do with your money.

so, apple can do refresh's every other year and it's all fine and dandy, but the moment AMD "refreshes/rebrands" the 200 series, everyone flips the fuck out.

Hey! I got my first smart phone midway through Freshman year, and IPhone 5 and I travel a lot. The first one lost its speaker phone, and the 6 has been out a while, but now I've had to upgrade to it so I can talk in the car. I am far from a moron. Apple doesn't release flagship phones often at all. That said, I wish I could have held on a few more months for the S so I would have a lesser chance of needing an upgrade sooner in the future.

Yeah no. Each iPhone upgrade has given better performance, as well as upgrades to the cameras and additions like touchid just like any other phone. You do see improvements, just like you would going from a graphics card to a new graphics card. If you say you're a moron for buying an iPhone every year you have to call the people who upgrade their computers every year a moron as well. Or people who buy Samsung phones every year a moron.

They're reusing a design, not completely refreshing/rebranding the iPhone 6. Internally it's going to be a much different beast, look at the R9 300 cards and internally... they're basically the same beasts.

A rebrand and a new phone are different. New iPhones come with better internal specs, and upgrades elsewhere. A rebrand is releasing the literal same thing under a different name.

I think a better comparison would be HTC.

How is it common sense to not buy a new phone every year? Being on the bleeding edge of technology is expensive. If you can't afford it then don't upgrade, but don't be so butthurt at those that can. That's just silly.
