Leaked iPhone 6 cables reveal design differences for both models

A new set of images of the the iPhone 6 home button flex cable have been leaked to Nowherelse.fr that show some of the changes coming to Apple’s new smartphones.

You could nearly build your own iPhone 6 with all the leaked components we’ve seen the last few weeks, but based on these alleged home button cables, the design of the new iPhone 6 won’t just be different from the iPhone 5s, but the the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s will also be very different from each other.

The iPhone 5s home button cable was designed to loop around at a 180° angle, but if the leaked parts above are genuine, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will have a straight home button cable, while the 5.5-inch iPhablet home button cable has a slight angle in the middle. This suggests that the internal layouts will be very different for both models, and they could also come with different features.

We can’t verify the authenticity of the parts, but the identification numbers on the to do match up with other part leaks, though the difference in design could just be from different design phases of the iPhone 6.

The site also got its hands on an induction flex cable for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 that shows Apple may not connect it to the same flexible cable as the photo sensor like it did on the iPhone 5s.
