Alleged iPhone 6 Rear Shell Images Hint at Light-Up Logo
A new set of images of the alleged iPhone 6 rear shell, showing the part in a “market-ready” version, was posted today by uSwitch. The blog also claims to have found proof of what has been said to be arriving for years now: the Apple logo on the back of the next-generation iPhone will light-up when new emails, SMS messages, or updates arrive.
We should mention, though, that besides showing a much clearer view of the inside of the forthcoming iPhone 6, the component still has the antenna breaks, despite previous rumours claiming they would disappear.
uSwitch arrived at the conclusion that the Apple logo will light up after they compared it to the same component of previous-generation iPhones. As they point out, the plastic part seems to be made thin enough to let out light when a notification arrives.
While the above evidence may convince some, we must note that rumours of a light-up Apple logo have been around for years, before the launch of a new-generation iPhone, just as have the rumours of Apple adopting NFC.
Apple is expected to release two new iPhones this September, and the date of in-store availability is said to be September 19.
