iPhone 6 backlight panel gets leaked on Weibo



A set of images of the iPhone 6’s alleged backlight panel have been leaked on the Chinese site Weibo this morning. User “顾Gooey” who posted the pictures claims they’re fit for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 that Apple is rumored to release later this year.

We can’t verify the legitimacy of the photos, but the part does appear to be produced similar to the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. However, Nowhereelse.fr notes that the connector has been moved slightly from the iPhone 5c backlight, and the pins are slightly different, signaling some possible changes from Cupertino.

Here’s another shot of the display from the back:



Earlier this year Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company has a host of new products it will launch throughout 2014, but with its first keynote of the year nearly a week away, Apple followers have been left with a dearth of new Apple toys, fueling the thirst for solid info.

The iPhone 6 isn’t expected to launch until this fall but a multitude of leaks have sprung out of China, flashing glimpses of the iPhone 6’s larger front panel, beefier battery, and possibly the very schematics Foxconn will use to build it.

Weibo has even dropped a few iOS 8 screenshots that reveal what Apple has in store for developers when Tim Cook takes the stage at Moscone West on June 2nd at 10am. We’re not expecting a new iPhone announcement, but Cult of Mac will be on hand to liveblog the entire event and frothing with anticipation for all the details.
