A purported iPhone 6 dummy set from Sonny Dickinson

The iPhone 6 is the most anticipated smartphone of 2014 and here’s everything we know so far about it.

Another year another iPhone makes its way into the market. Once more we’ll see some incremental changes in Apple’s flagship smartphone. It’ll definitely excite iFans out there and the rest of us will likely go… meh, same old, same old… or will we?

If the “leaks” are anything to go by, Apple’s next iteration of the iPhone is going to be anything but the same old story. We’ve gathered here everything we know, at least so far, about what we can expect from the next fruity sensation.

All metal goodness and a more curved design

Look, we’re rather tired of the same old iPhone look. Ok maybe some additional curves here and there might make it a little different from before but honestly, the iPhone has had the same look for a good five years since the iPhone 4 was launched in 2010. For a company that prides itself for being in the cutting edge of design, Apple hasn’t really impressed us with the iPhone’s design since… well 2010.

That might all change with the upcoming iPhone 6. There’s no way the tech crowd’s going to let Apple off with a free pass if it’s only going to look the same as the iPhone 5s with slightly better innards. There have been plenty of renders of what the smartphone MIGHT look like (some of which we wouldn’t mind being true) but some of the more partially conclusive leaks give us a better idea of what it’ll look like

A leaked image by Chinese site Ctech on Weibo shows a reportedly genuine iPhone 6 casing. The image shows that the iPhone 6 is likely to be thinner but taller, and wider than its predecessor. Another image leak by French site Nowhereelse.fr shows what appears to be an all metal rear. The design looks to be slimmer and rounder as well, harking back to the original iPhone design.

The rounded design is further evidenced by image leak from GSM Arena and Sonny Dickinson, the well-known Apple leaker. The GSM Arena picture has the Samsung Galaxy S5 next to the purported new iPhone for comparison.

Sonny Dickinson’s on the other hand has leaked a couple of pictures over the last few weeks including one which feature three iPhone 6 dummy units. The pictures highlight the curved design together with the three colours (gold, space grey and silver) that the iPhone 6 will be coming in. We also noted that those dummy phones look quite metallic as well.
