New iPhone 6 parts leak reaffirms huge redesign

iPhone 6 Rumors

It’s not exactly a mystery at this point: Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 and “iPhone Air” phablet will feature a huge redesign that represents a big departure from its current iPhone 5s and 5c models. According to countless leaks, the devices will sport a unibody aluminum housing and a new glass display cover that curves downward at its edges. The phones will also be much more rounded than the iPhone 5s. In fact, they appear to be similar in shape to the first-generation iPhone.

We have seen dozens of iPhone 6 mockups leak that are reportedly based on legitimate leaked schematics, and now new internal components have seemingly leaked, further supporting the notion that Apple’s next iPhones will feature a big design overhaul.

FROM EARLIER: This is the iPhone 6′s curved glass screen

Czech blog Letem svetem Applem on Tuesday published three photos of what it claims to be authentic components that will be included in Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6, though the site doesn’t clarify if they will be in the 4.7-inch model or the larger 5.5-inch phablet.

The parts do not resemble anything we have seen in any currently available iPhone models.

The site says the leaked parts are a power flex cable, a volume flex cable and a set of three SIM card trays. If authentic, the SIM trays suggest that Apple will launch this year’s iPhone 6 in the same three colors as the iPhone 5s: silver, gold and space gray.

Earlier reports suggested that the iPhone 6 will launch on September 19th, though that date is obviously not confirmed. Apple’s larger “iPhone Air” model may launch at the same time as the 4.7-inch iPhone, or it may be released at a later date closer to the holidays.
