Apple iPhone 6 Leak WWDC

The iPhone 6 really won’t be much of a surprise whenever it’s finally revealed since we’ve been seeing leaks showing us its exact shape and size for the past several weeks. However, has published a new video that was purportedly filmed during Apple’s preparations for its Worldwide Developers Conference next week that the site claims shows a full render of the iPhone 6.

In the first image of the front of the phone, you might think there’s no way to tell whether it’s an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 5s, but the next slide of the back of the phone is quite obviously not any iPhone model currently on the market.

Instead, the look of the device aligns well with the dozens of leaked mockups we’ve seen that supposedly resemble Apple’s upcoming 4.7-inch flagship phone.

The device in the video has more curved edges than the iPhone 5s and the design of the rear housing is nothing like Apple’s current iPhones. That said, the design shown also seems to have more sloped edges on the top and bottom of the device, which is slightly different from some other leaks we’ve seen.

What’s more, the low quality of the video makes it hard to tell anything for certain and it seems strange that Apple would be playing a video showing off the iPhone 6 when it’s preparing for a conference in which it is not expected to show off a new iPhone or any other major new hardware, such as the iWatch or a refreshed Apple TV.

Taken all together, it’s really hard to give this video too much credence — and it could easily be faked.

Nonetheless, you can watch’s video below and decide for yourself.
