An Apple carrier partner just confirmed the iPhone 6

Just about everyone who cares at all about smartphones knows that Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is just weeks away from being announced during a huge press conference on September 9th. Even still, Apple generally likes to be the first company to announce its new devices and make them official before its carrier partners and distributors start sharing their plans for new iPhones.

At least one wireless carrier didn’t get that memo, however, as China Telecom has apparently just confirmed the iPhone 6 publicly and shared a few details about the device. More →

Apple is going to extreme lengths to make sure your iPhone 6 is just perfect

How much does Apple want to make sure the iPhone 6 is the best it can be? So much that it’s willing to make a last minute change just weeks before its launch that has apparently left its supply chain partners “scrambling.” According to a new report from Reuters, Apple this month sent a key iPhone 6 component “back to the drawing board” for a redesign after the company found that it didn’t make the device’s display bright enough to meet its exacting standards.

Huge leak shows the 5.5-inch iPhone’s rear shell side-by-side with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6

An image showing the alleged rear shell of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 next to the same component for the 5.5-inch version has been leaked from a source “deep within Apple’s supply chain in China,” BestTechInfo reports. In case you’re wondering, the same publication previously published on YouTube a hands-on review of an actual backplate for the 4.7-inch model, and has posted similar YouTube videos last year showing back shells for 2013 iPhones before they became official, so it has a pretty decent track record.

Apple is expected to unveil two iPhone 6 models this year that will both be bigger than any of the iPhones it launched so far.

Hidden iOS 8 code may reveal a key iPhone 6 specification

Apple is just weeks away from unveiling two new iPhones, but as with any Apple reveal, there are still plenty of details being kept under wraps. The most oft-repeated rumor, supported by enough evidence to put it in the fact column, is that one iPhone 6 model will have a 4.7-inch display and the phablet version will feature a 5.5-inch display. With larger displays, it would make sense for Apple to bump up the resolution as well, but previous reports regarding an upgraded resolution have been shaky at best. More →
