iPhone 6s body revealed in leaked photos

by Brandon Russell | June 30, 2015

Hoping that the next iPhone will sport a dual-lens camera system, or even hidden antennas? Think again.

Several pictures over at 9to5Mac reveal what the update will look like this fall, and it’s basically the device people have in their pockets right now. As in, don’t expect Apple to introduce any superficial changes when the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus hit, though that doesn’t mean there won’t be any upgrades to how the device functions.

According to the images, the design will remain the same; rounded edges, slim body, antenna lines, oh my. Other than that, the shell shows the same button arrangement, speaker location and headphone jack. The cutout for the camera and LED flash is also in the same spot, though it’s hard to say if the camera will still protrude when an update hits later this year.

What’s notable about this leak, however, is the fact that the shell features a different internal mounting structure. As noted by 9to5Mac, there appears to be new mounting points for a new logic board.

“The mounting points line up with details we’ve received regarding the logic board, confirming the shell’s authenticity for a new device,” 9to5Mac said.

As for what will be new when the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launch later this fall, we’ve heard rumors the update will include Force Touch, an upgraded camera, and faster internals. We normally see an announcement in September, and with Apple’s manufacturing partners allegedly building the upgraded models as we speak, it seems as though that timeframe will stick around this year.
