A new leak out China has revealed what appears to be a working 64GB capacity 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model running iOS 8 (build 12A365). The images come from cnbeta (via MacRumors) who re-posted images uploaded by Weibo user zzray, showing the iPhone 6 model next to the iPhone 5s.
The huge leak here, is the new Passbook icon in iOS 8, which appears to include a new mobile payments stripe added to the top of the icon.
Here’s a closer look at a cropped image, which shows a new red/orange stripe depicting a card icon for Passbook:
