Leaked Image Showing Battery for Next-Gen iPhone Appears Online



A photo showing something similar to the battery for the upcoming iPhone 6s has recently appeared on the Internet. The image has been first spotted and shared by French reporters from  Nowhereelse.fr, so I think we can believe what we see.

Although the battery contains all the usual references to Apple’s battery supplier, its capacity leaves much to be desired. As can be seen on the image below, the leaked part has a capacity of only 1715 mAh, which indicates that it may have been manufactured for the smaller 4-inch iPhone. In case you don’t know, the guys from Cupertino have reportedly decided to put off the release of a smaller handset until the next year.

New Photos Reveal Internal and External iPhone 6s Parts



Several new interesting images showing leaked parts for the upcoming iPhone 6s have recently appeared on the Internet. The images have been shared by usually-reliable French website Nowhereelse.fr, so I guess we can believe what we see.

The photos reveal flex cables for power, volume, camera and LED flash, which are now combined in a single part to save the space inside of the next-generation iPhone. Apart from that, we can take a look at the rings for the iPhone 6s camera that prove it will be slightly protruding and the casings for the Home button that prove Apple plans to release a gold iPhone later this year.

Apple to Expand Minimum Amount of iPhone 6s Storage to 32GB - Rumor



According to the latest report from M.I.C. Gadget, the guys from Cupertino are currently planning to expand the minimum storage of the next-generation iPhone. Instead of using 16GB, Apple is said to equip the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with 32GB of memory. This will make the handsets a bit more expensive, however, the increase in memory will allow users to download and store more files directly in their smartphones. It should be noted, however, that the rumor about new minimum storage option comes from insiders who have reportedly seen the packaging of the would-be devices. Well, that’s not the most reliable source of information, so I guess we should take the aforementioned report with a few pinches of salt.

Leaked Images Show iPhone 6s Plus Rear Shell with Minor Changes



Several new images showing something what appears to be a rear shell for the upcoming iPhone 6s Plus have recently appeared on the Internet. Future Supplier blog reporters claim the part is nearly identical in size and shape to the rear shell of the iPhone 6 Plus. Probably the only really noticeable difference is the location of the holes for screws that hold the loud speaker module. Apart from that, “the 6S Plus’ rear housing is stronger”. Looks like the guys from Cupertino did their best to make the smartphone strong enough not to bend in your pocket. Well, that’s what we all expected, right?

In 2012, the profits of Apple and Samsung were nearly equal, however, since that time, the situation has changed and now we see that Apple is far more successful that its South Korean rival.

Apple Releases Two New iPhone 6 Commercials [Video]



The guys from Cupertino have recently released two iPhone 6 commercials. They are called  'Loved' and 'Hardware & Software'. As can be easily guessed from the names of the ads, they tell us about people using iPhones and the reasons for them to love these devices as well as about the perfect combination of hardware and software of the iPhone. The main idea of both clips sounds like “If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone”. What a surprise for us!

Both commercials are available below this post and on Apple’s official YouTube channel. Below these short videos you will find the descriptions posted by the guys from Cupertino.

99% of people who have an iPhone… Love their iPhone.
