The iPhone 6 is rumored to be released in September. Not only are people clamoring to know all the special features Apple has planned, but they want to find out what the phone will look like too.
If rumors are to be believed, the iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch display, much larger than all the previous phones. So much larger, Insider Sonny Dickson decided to post comparison pictures. The following is his explanation:
“Pictures of the iPhone 6 Mockup have been circulating throughout the web. I’ve gone ahead and compared the Mockup to older generations of the iPhones and the iPod Touch 5G, as well as the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5.”
What followed were lots and lots of pictures.
Speaking of pictures, Dickson also tweeted a photo originally posted by Macfixit showing the new iPhone case to be a disgusting puke-green color.
Of course, anything leaked may or may not be what goes up on shelves in September, but it’s not stopping people from creating mock-ups based on leaked blueprints.
All the leaks has gotten Apple quite upset. In fact, the company appears to have been collaborating with the Chinese Government to stop the leaks. Dickson tweeted the following about the subject:
There are about 200 security officers trying to catch those who dare to sell i6 accessories.

Then he proceeded to go into detail on his blog:
“On May 27th, Shen Zhen Customs (Shenzhen anti-smuggling governing body), and Hua Qiang street authorities, stormed the YuanWang Mall to try to catch some of those smugglers and whoever was said to sell Apple/Samsung/Nokia/etc units, or fake Apple/Samsung/Nokia units. More than 120 government officials are involved in this operation.
Apple may have had a role in this raid, since Apple have the ability to track all serials & activations between HK and China.”
