New iPhone 6 leak gives us a great look at the device’s major redesign

iPhone 6 Rumors Rear Case

The rear iPhone 6 shell which has appeared in various reports so far has leaked yet again, as YouTube channel iCrackUriDevice has apparently scored a copy of the component directly from a manufacturer. In a short video, iCrackUriDevice goes over all the design changes expected for the iPhone 6, including the phone’s thin profile, relocated power button, iPod touch-like volume rockers, round corners, redesigned antennas on the back, and increased size of the device, while comparing it to last year’s flagship iPhone model, the iPhone 5s.

The component is similar to other iPhone 6 rear shell leaks, and is consistent with what the many iPhone 6 dummy units have revealed about the device when it comes to design elements.

The leaked part also indicates that Apple will use a different kind of logo on its next iPhone models, rather than the metal one that’s embedded in the case of previous-generation devices, which is something other recent reports have claimed. However, the metal case does not have the “iPhone” name printed on the back, suggesting this isn’t a final version.

The full video showing this new iPhone 6 leak follows below.
