How the iPhone 6 might compare to its predecessors


While mockups of Apple’s eagerly awaited iPhone 6 have been popping up for a while now, it’s still pretty amazing to see just how far we’ve come since the first generation iPhone made it to our sweaty palms back in the good old days of 2007.

That comparison is made clearer in a new video put together by YouTube user DetroidBORG, which does a great job of comparing a dummy iPhone 6 handset with every previous model of iPhone that has come before.

No, this isn’t guaranteed to be be exactly what the iPhone 6 will look like when it finally hits stores this September, but it does conform to a lot of what we’ve heard about the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 as indicated by supply chain rumors. In particular the iPhone 6 dummy is thinner than the current generation iPhone 5s, features rounded corners, a couple of antenna breaks at the back, and also a relocated power button.

A larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is also expected, although it has reportedly suffered production delays and may arrive after the 4.7-inch model.
