The iPhone 6 could include a MacBook-style light-up logo, according to new photos uncovered by renowned Apple leaker Sonny Dickson.
The photos show an apparent iPhone 6 case, with a thin plastic space that would allow for a light to shine out. While nothing concrete suggests this, if true the light could be used to indicate at a glance what type of notification a user was receiving at any moment — perhaps pulsating white for a call, or flashing blue for a text message or Twitter update.
According to website uSwitch, who first posted the photos, the clear plastic logo could also be an opening used for NFC transmission, while the rest of metal on the rear of the case would block signals.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports that the iPhone 6 could feature a light-up logo.
The latest images leaked line up with a lot of what we’ve previously heard about the upcoming iPhone 6, although it’s worth noting that the ugly antenna breaks seen in these images will likely be replaced by glass for the final release.
The iPhone 6 is expected to arrive in September, possibly on September 19.
