iPhone 6 Air Concept Takes Our Breath Away

Of the many iPhone 6 concepts that have surfaced recently, this one takes the cake. Designer Martin Hajek is at it again, this time working with, and he created a concept based on alleged schematics for the new iPhone that surfaced recently. Hajek carries over the industrial design that we see on the current iPad mini and iPad Air and applies it to the new iPhone, though adds in a few changes what we hope Apple includes.

Most noteworthy among those changes is the clear edge-to-edge display. That sort of layout would allow Apple to increase the screen size without necessarily increasing the body of the phone too much. Most rumors suggest the company is working on either a 4.7-inch display, a 5.5-inch display or both for the iPhone 6 – and Hajek appears to have gone with the 4.7-inch design. Just below the screen, you’ll see that the TouchID home button is indeed in tact, and the speakers/Lightning port are in the same place as they are on the iPhone 5s, while the headphone jack has been moved to the right-side of the bottom.

The back of the phone appears to employ a glass cover over the aluminum body. Also, on the sides of the device, the volume buttons are a lot more flush with the body than what Apple has typically done in the past. We like this look better, Apple’s button layouts have proven super efficient and easy to use, so the company may not gravitate that far away from what it knows already works.

This is probably our favorite iPhone 6 concept yet, and it’s conservative enough that none of the design choices seem out of question. Apple may be considering something else entirely – again, this is just an artistic rendition – but we would certainly be happy with something that looks similar. TechCrunch
