A Japanese case-maker has published the very first ‘iPhone 6’ dummy prototypes on its website, and from the looks of its, it is definitely larger than the current line of iPhones, 9to5Mac reports. The alleged next generation iPhone prototype is based on the rumours of a 5.5” screen handset, which Apple is expected to unveil later this year.
