iPhone 6 to be as thin as iPod touch, leaked case shows

The iPhone 6 could be just 6mm thick - as slim as the current iPod touch - if a case claimed to be for the next-generation Apple phone is genuine.

Detailed in a five-minute video by Unbox Therapy, the case is designed a fit a device with a 4.7-inch screen - the size widely expected to be used by the iPhone 6, due later this year.

It also suggests the next Apple handset will ditch its round volume buttons in favour of long, narrow ones, as seen on the iPod touch and iPad. The case’s volume buttons match up exactly with those on an iPod touch, and the music player fits perfectly in the case as well. 

The current iPhone 5s measures 7.6mm thick, but if this case is accurate, the next phone will be 6.1mm, significantly less. 

Apple is expected to announce a new, larger iPhone in September or October this year, running the company’s new iOS 8 operating system and working in partnership with a smartwatch and fitness tracker dubbed the iWatch. These are expected to be followed by a larger 5.5-inch iPhone at the end of the year.

iOS 8 is expected to be revealed at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco in June.
