Alleged images of the iPhone 6’s backlight panel have been leaked

1 min read

Another day, another iPhone 6 leak. This time, an alleged iPhone 6 backlight panel has surfaced on the Chinese-twitter site Weibo. Just yesterday, an alleged aluminum mold used by manufactures surfaced as well. While there is no way to verify the legitimacy of the image, the part does appear to look similar to the backlight panel of the iPhone 5s/5c. There are a few small differences such as relocated connects and different pins.  The part appears to be for the 4.7-inch model iPhone, however Apple is rumored to release a larger 5.5-inch iPhone along side the 4.7-inch model. 

While there have been a multitude of iPhone 6 mockups and case leaks, actual parts said to be from the iPhone 6 have thus far been in short supply. We’ve seen what might be the front panel of the device along with possible batteries and a manufacturing mold used for creating the phone’s chassis. What is said to be a backlight panel for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has now appeared on Chinese Twitter-like site Weibo. There is no way to verify the legitimacy of the images, but the backlight design does appear similar to the backlight panel of the iPhone 5s and the 5c, with a few small differences — the connector has been relocated and the pins themselves have a different design. Little new information about the iPhone 6 can be gleaned from the images, legitimate or not, but previous rumors have suggested that Apple will take advantage of advancements in LED backlighting technology to shift to thinner components for the iPhone 6, shrinking the thickness of the device considerably. Current rumors and design schematics have suggested the iPhone 6 might be between 6 and 7mm thick, considerably thinner than the existing 7.6mm iPhone 5s.
