More leaked iPhone 6 photos surface online
Photos emerge online but may not be the real thing
More photos of the iPhone 6, which is rumoured to be released 9 September have emerged online, this time it is said to be in its final retail packaging.
The pictures of the device surfaced on the tech blog TechRadar yesterday and show a phone similar to the iPhone 5S, but larger and featuring rounder edges. The box is nearly identical to the 5S.
"A source tells us that these photos were taken by an Apple beta tester, but declined to give more information.
"This is a new source for us, so we're not saying with 100% confidence that these photos are authentic. But after having checked EXIF data, photo manipulation and doing a little background check on our source, there's no reason for us to believe that these are fakes. Again, not 100% on that." Said TechRadar in its blog.
"The issue then is not whether the images are real (which we feel they are), but whether they're of an actual iPhone 6."
Commenters on the site are suspicious, with one pointing out that there is no sign of the new health app: "This device is being launched with iOS 8 - the BIG feature of which is Health Kit - where is it on that screen? That is pretty suspicious."
