Rumors of the next iPhone packing NFC flood the blogosphere every year, but we have yet to see any idevice include the technology. While nearly all of Apple’s competitors have been including NFC in their flagships for years, the Cupertino company has refused to do the same. Apple SVP Phil Schiller spoke on the matter back in 2012 stating, “It’s not clear that NFC is the solution to any current problem.” But once again, reports of NFC being included on idevices have surfaced ahead of the iPhone 6 launch.
With the next iPhone rumored to be sporting a 4.7-inch display, many concept designers and artists have been working on mock-ups to guess what the iPhone 6 will look like. We’ve seen a number of pretty impressive designs but thanks to some leaked schematics, we may have nailed the actual design of the upcoming idevice. The most recent reports and leaked pictures suggest that the iPhone 6 will indeed pack a 4.7-inch display, rounded edges, and a thinner profile.
So would what iOS look like on a larger iPhone? The folks over at 9to5Mac decided to put a Moto X running a simulated version of iOS inside an iPhone 6 dummy unit to see what it would look like. Head inside for the results:
We all love and admire the iPhone 5s camera, but just how good is it? Well, apparently its good enough for Bentley to be shooting ads with it.
The latest ad from Bentley showcases the beautiful Bentley Mulsanne in all its glory, and it was shot with an iPhone 5s. In fact, the whole short film was made on iOS devices. The video was taken with an iPhone 5s and edited on an iPad Air. Check it out:
The folks over at Nowhereelse.fr have gotten their hands on photos of what appears to be a case for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. This is actually the first leak we have seen of the rumored 5.5-inch iPhone 6, with most of the other leaks and reports focusing on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.
Our friends over at 9to5Mac have posted an awesome video showing off gold and space gray iPhone 6 mockups next to the current iPhone 5s and iPod Touch models.

New images have surfaced on the Chinese WeiFeng network of what appear to be schematics of the next generation iPhone. The images are allegedly directly from Apple’s supply chain and are said to be the official design of the iPhone 6.
Some physical mockups of the iPhone 6 have been caught in the wild, showing off the next-generation iPhone in silver, black, and gold. Of course, the design of the dummy units may not be official, but some case makers have already started producing accessories based on the schematics of these mock-ups.
According to new a report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Apple’s iPhone 6 may come as early as August this year. The report cites anonymous sources from Apple’s supply chain, who claim that the 4.7-inch variant of the iPhone 6 will be released in August, while the larger 5.5-inch model will launch a month later in September.
