Lewis Hilsenteger from Canadian YouTube channel Unbox Therapy has posted a new video comparing his alleged iPhone 6 case to the current generation iPod touch:

In this video I compare this 3rd party “iPhone 6” case with the current generation iPod Touch. If this case turns out to be accurate, we’ll be seeing a very thin iPhone 6.

The purpose of the video is to imagine what the rumoured iPhone 6 would look like based on the thin and curved design of the current iPod touch. Right now, the iPad Air, Retina iPad mini and iPhone 5c all sport curved designs.

Check it out below:

As you can see from the video the volume rocker buttons of the alleged iPhone 6 case resemble the buttons from the current iPod touch, iPad Air and Retina iPad mini.

With the inevitable retiring of the iPhone 5/5S design—will Apple move its next phone to match up the iOS device line up? We would think so.

Or, maybe this case leak is actually for the next generation iPod touch, which would probably have the same rumoured larger screen size as the iPhone 6.

The current 5th generation iPod touch design launched in the fall of 2012, alongside the iPhone 5—with the same screens. It’s been four long years since a form factor change so one is certainly due. The wait from the fourth gen iPod touch to fifth gen was only two years.

    That’s too bad. I much prefer the flat edge design of the 4-to-5s. Everything about it is beautiful and classic… like it was made by Braun in the 60’s. I assume the curved edged will be to make it easier to hold and control with a larger screen. That’s unfortunate.

    Also, maybe it’s just me but a larger, thinner device is just asking to get broken in a pocket or a bag. When I upgraded from the 4 to the 5s – i was already put off but he difference in weight and thickness. I eventually got used to it but not sure if I want it thinner.
