    Now, thanks to a bunch of leaked parts, we have a pretty good idea of what the iPhone 6 will look like. The big question we have is what about those antenna panes on the rear shells?
    Based on leaked parts and other info, there seems to be two possible design possibilities.
    iPhone conceptualist Martin Hajek has once again done his magical rendering, comparing both possibilities. I like the glass antenna panes look much better. But I don't like either of the gold/white colors. Space Gray or gold/black would be nice. What do you think Apple will go with? The one on the
    Right?
    Left?
    or
    Neither?

    At this point I don't care either way. To me, if the next iPhone looks like either of these, I am slightly disappointed and consider it a step backwards in design. Losing the hard lines, polished edges, sharp contrasts etc for this rounded unicolor look just seems to cheapen the overall design. I think the 5/5S devices are the most elegant and refined devices on the market. Not purposely being negative or looking to start a debate, these are just my feelings. If I am looking at the end product in either of these renders, I will be inclined to use a case more than ever.

    I totally agree with you. If the iPhone 6 looks like any of these, I shall get an opaque case, rather than the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Crystal Clear I was going to get. I just do not like any of these renders and still hold out hope that the finished article will look better than the pics above. Although, the first render in the second picture is less ugly than the others. Just my opinion, of course.

    I agree with you both. I don't like the rounded edges at all. Give me the polished edges on the 5S. That's a sharp and professional looking device.

    Always try to give proper attribution to articles you make posts from. It's good form.

    Neither. I think it's the ugliest designed phone since the Nokia Lumia 925. It just looks like a flattened and rolled iPhone 5s. If this is indeed the next iPhone, It would seem Jony just called this one in, pretty lazy design.

    If this is indeed the next iPhone. Apple has gone from paving the way with the 5s to a me too, big screen design. Not impressed.

    I dont like these designs either. But I am saving judgment until I see them in person. I hated the iPhone 5 when I saw it in leaks, with the two tone back, but now I think my current iPhone 5 is a very nice looking phone.

    That said, my iPhone 5 works so well I am not sure I need to rush to upgrade. I must be getting old. Lets see what happens on the 9th.

    They both look almost the same to me. What is the larger design delta I am missing?

    Both these designs are mad ugly. The white strips look like someone just slapped a sticker on it.

    I'll definitely be putting on a case if these are the final designs.

    These are fugly and definitely not the final product. I just spoke to Tim Cook and he assures me that the finished product will please 98% of iPhone users.

    Squeeze,

    How is Tim? Tell him that no matter what most will not be happy. I am thinking shape from the pictures will be the shape of the iPhone 6. Other than that we will find out soon. I was hoping for some white walls and flares.

    As posted by others, both the designs are not at all appealing. I *hope* they don't come with something of this sort else, I might switch to 5s

    For me I like the one on the left. I looked at a design that was a glass top and bottom and it hid the antenna lines. I'm not sure why Apple went that route but there's always a reason they do what they do.

    I remember reading that Steve Jobs had a part in the design on the 5 and 6 so I don't think we will be disappointed.

    I'm excited for the larger screen BUT is anyone else concerned that the screen will be so tall?

    I don't mind either, but I would definitely prefer the left over the right.

    Maybe the iPhone 6 will be like the iPhone 4, where everyone hated it initially, but ended up loving it when it was launched

    I remember. There was a lot of hate when the prototype was found.
