iPhone 6 rear cover leaked by Apple supply chain

A component claimed to be the rear cover of the iPhone 6 has leaked from Apple’s Chinese supply chain, ahead of an expected September launch.

Expected to have a 4.7-inch screen - larger than the 4in iPhone 5s - the part pictured appeared to be made from aluminium, with holes cut out for the rear camera, flash and noise-cancelling microphone. The green finish isn’t the colour of the phone - it’s merely a protective film stuck on to stop it from being scratched.

While it’s difficult to judge the size of this latest leak, the iPhone 6 is widely expected to have a 4.7-inch screen and it will be followed by a 5.5-inch model towards the end of the year.
