    Default NEW iPhone 6 Housing Revealed!

    I apologize in advance if this topic has already been covered but for those who haven't seen it, we're looking at what could potentially be the rear outer shell case for the iPhone 6. Just like the one for the 5s was 'leaked' turned out to be legit it looks like it'll be the same case for this one too.

    More leaks with those ugly thick antenna bands on the back.

    I think those bands make it look distinguished and gives it character.

    Let's hope those bands aren't on the final design. That leaks that were shown stated that they were possibly not final design leaks, because they didn't have any marking and lettering on the back. That statement at least gives me some hope that they won't appear on the final design

    I think the overall aesthetics of Apple products are what give them character. Those bands look so out of place that it's sad. Again, these are all just supposed designs so hopefully this isn't what it comes to.

    Yes pr1nce, i agree with you. I think they ruin the looks of the back of the phone. I really dislike them.

    The bands don't bother me that much as I don't spend an inordinate amount time looking at the back of my phone.

    Well we saw the 'leaked' housing for the iPhone 5s last year and it turned out to be legit. Who's to say it won't be the same this year?

    I don't spend much time looking at the back of the phone either. But the bands don't add to the overall look of the device.

    Yeah. It just looks aesthetically not pleasing. Feels like they're really out of place. I can understand needing the bands there but hopefully they would actually be painted to blend in with whatever the color of the device is. Maybe that's just what's missing out of all of this. The white bands just being painted to blend in.

    If you look closely the apple logo is cut out, hope that means the logo will glow 😃

    And if there is a glow then I hope there is an option to turn that off.

    People complain about the battery life then wish for things that will make it worse.

    It could reflect from the screen light like a mac does.

    I wouldn't want it to glow because it just seems kind of pompous.

    Maybe that's for the "missing" blinking LED notifications that Android & BlackBerry fans are always whining about?

    It'd be one hell of a pretentious LED notification light.

    Is that not the Apple way? This year on iPhone 6 we've designed the best notification LED that we've ever put on a phone ...
