    Every leaked image I see, and I now assume it's a given seeing as we're so close to release, the new ip6 only has one speaker!

    I'm a little concerned about potential volume and quality of sound. I know I will have to wait and see - who knows? it could be extremely loud!! But I would of expected to see two external speakers like the ip5s.

    Can somone tell me if the speaker at the bottom of the unit in the leaked pics is the only one?

    The iPhone 5s only has 1 speaker also. The other one is a microphone.

    All iDevices only had one speaker until the iPad mini and iPad Air which do have stereo speakers.

    Well, That'll teach me to research before asking such a question.

    Thanks guys - I genuinely didn't know the 5s only had the one speaker. My fears for the ip6 are now put to rest.

    No worries. The iPhone's have always had 2 grills on the bottom so it's an easy mistake to make.

    Hey, but if you want 2 speakers, the HTC One M8 is always an option

    Lol, I did this once. I thought I blew a speaker on the right side until I did a little search

    Based on all the leaks I've seen so far, there's only 1 grill at the bottom of the iPhone 6, which I presume is the microphone. Have anyone every wondered where might the speaker be? I don't see any speaker grills at the back of the iPhone :P

    The leaks we have seen have 6 holes on the right side, presumably for the speaker, and one hole on the left side that I assume is for the microphone. Not sure if that would be enough for the microphone or not, but, Apple would obviously have that part figured out before moving forward.

    You don't need multiple holes for a microphone; one will do.

    You are right! I didn't notice the hole on the left side of the phone, that should be the microphone. I just hope that Apple won't place the speaker at the back of the iPhone.

    Just so newbies understand, the iPhone has 2 speakers. The top speaker used like for talking and other stuff, and a bottom speaker for music, game sounds and other stuff.

    I think he's referring to the phone's earpiece.

    Oh, gotcha. Can't believe I didn't think about that. Thanks for clarifying
