Alleged iPhone 6 cases reflect rumored design changes, repositioned power button


We’re still months away from Apple’s expected announcement of the iPhone 6, but ambitious manufactures are already designing accessories based on current rumors. Additional silicon cases rumored to fit the iPhone 6 were recently published on NoWhereElse and provide a closer look at some of the device’s possible design changes.

The case pictured above has slightly rounded edges, similar to the 5th generation iPod touch or iPhone 5c, and are consistent with previous rumors. As we’ve seen in recent accessory leaks, the case also features a repositioned power button and thin oblong volume buttons similar to an iPod touch. It has also been rumored that Apple’s iPhone 6 will feature a larger 4.7-inch display.

As noted by NoWhereElse, the source of these images has not been proven to be trustworthy. This may be a case makers attempt to get ahead of the game and manufacture a product based on rumored specifications. It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen similar tactics, but most of the other rumors and leaks we’ve seen up to this point do line up with the design changes here.

Analyst predicts 2014 A7 Apple TV, future in set-top boxes

This year has seen many product refreshes for Apple (a aapl) — including the super high-end Mac Pro — but the Apple TV system has been suspiciously absent from the proceedings. But it’s coming soon, if an analyst report spotlighted by 9to5Mac is on target. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that in 2014, Apple TV will use an A7 chip, but that the long-term goal is a set-top box in 2015 or 2016. Both products are reasonably predictable — the A7 upgrade is an easy one to make, and Apple already has patents for a set-top box in place — so it’s worth keeping in mind.
