A new pair of iPhone 6 renderings based on leaked schematics has been created and the images give us a glimpse into what the 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6 could look like.
Apple recently saw internal and confidential documents leak to the web that pretty much confirm we can expect to see a larger and possibly cheaper iPhone 6 released in the fall. One of the documents from April 2013 labeled "...growth rates are slowing," shows the company acknowledging iPhone sales are slowing down. Another slide labeled "Consumers want what we don't have" reveals consumers want smartphones with bigger screens and lower price tags. The leaked documents are the first official sign Apple will move beyond the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c's 4-inch Retina display.
There have been multiple reports claiming Apple will release both a 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6 this fall. We recently reported that schematics of both smartphone's dimensions leaked online and were made into 3D renderings to get an idea of what the smartphones might look like.
MacRumors just commissioned designer Ferry Passchier to create renderings of the 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6 based on the dimensions in the leaked schematics. This isn't the first time the site used leaked schematics to produce mockups of rumored iPhones. It produced renderings of the iPhone 5c last year and was spot -on with what the lower-priced iPhone would look like.
The new iPhone 6 renderings show devices with the same design language of the iPad Air and iPad mini, complete with a rounded anodized aluminum rear. Like many Android smartphones with large displays, the power button has been placed on the side of the device to make it easier for users to power on and not need to stretch their fingers too much; in this case the power button is placed on the left side of the iPhone 6.
The images also show how the two iPhone 6 smartphones compare to the 4-inch iPhone 5s and 7.9-inch iPad mini. The site notes that there's no way to be certain that the schematics are accurate and believes we'll see more leaks as the iPhone 6 enters production.
