back to article Just in case? Unverified 'supersize me' iPhone 6 pics in sneak leak peek

New pictures have surfaced that purport to show the casing for a new super-sized iPhone 6. The phab-ulous images popped up on a site called Evasi0n Jailbreak. After the site talked up the images on Twitter for several hours, Apple-sniffers were rewarded with what the site claims are genuine pics. Although a larger 5.5-inch …

now question is, How long til Apple sues Samsung over the note III claiming they note III looks like the iphone 6?

About what it's worth...

"Walmart has knocked the price of the fruity-flavoured iPhone 5C down to just 97 cents."

The Apple staff that even came up with the idea of the colourful 5C, loudly proclaiming "I'm a cheap-wad that can't afford the 5S", should get a bonus of the same amount.

As TG's Clarkson constantly explains, the Porsche Boxster is a rolling advertisement that one cannot afford a 911. If the Boxster only came in bright colours, it would only be worse. I guess Apple staff never watch TG.

Re: About what it's worth...

I know quite a few people who have 5Cs.

They are the sort of girl who swoons over Justin Bieber*. You get the picture.

For this demographic, the 5C is in no way an ad for the owner's lack of financial means.

Also, the white 5C is very über très cool!

* I apologise for even knowing who this is :(

Re: About what it's worth...

I'm starting to see quite a few 5Cs, owned by sensible people who can't justify the price of the 5S and are upgrading from the 4/4S. Having played with both the S and C in the flesh, I was surprised how nice the C actually is and how cheap it doesn't feel.

Re: About what it's worth...

I've used a 5c for about a year, and as a slightly camp straight man I am totally in love with my yellow apple. Software works, it has a good amount of storage and the camera is bloody good. Would I but the S? Absolutely, the c was great for people like me that wanted one but didn't want one. The 6s will get my money because I want want, and I want the best one.

Re: About what it's worth...

I do actually know a teenage male who has a 5c... Although he has recently announced to us (in front of his stepfather - my friend) that he'd had his teeth whitened and couldn't eat/drink anything coloured for 3 days...

Draw any conclusions you like!

You want, want, want and are determined to splurge your cash, without even knowing what it is? Jeez, I'm in the wrong business...

Re: @credas

If you was an iPhone user then I am sure you would understand, other phones seem clunky by comparison. So whilst the budget model (and I use that term loosely for the c) is a cracking phone the actual cost for the top of the range model is worth it.

Please refer to the Top Gear Porsche argument.

I'm not convinced

Screws? Apple have tended to use pressure and glue recently, it looks far less refined than even cheap mobiles in the photographs. So either Apple is putting servicing of mobile devices higher than aesthetics for a change or it's fake IMO.

Re: I'm not convinced

If you look at the images, the screw holes referred to are internal - for pcb mounting I would guess, so this makes it entirely plausible [note that they may not even be screw holes, but simple locating posts instead...

Re: I'm not convinced

iPhones have had an *increasing* number of screws (as already stated, *inside*). They (eBay'ers) even sell special iPhone-shaped screw holders to keep them organized, starting with (I think) the 4. Not even required with the 3GS for example.

"no one wants to walk around talking to a plastic phone"

They'd much rather the real deal...............

Covered with a drab rubber cover, to protect the fragile glass from breaking.

Re: "no one wants to walk around talking to a plastic phone"

I've had a 5 (not c or s) for almost two years, never have had a cover on it or the 4s and 3gs that preceded it, never had a broken screen (though I have had a two or three drops onto concrete that scuffed the edges a bit)

It isn't as though iPhones are any better or worse as far as screen breakage than other phones. They're all using the same Gorilla Glass, so unless they add an airbag that deploys when dropped all phones have the about the same ~ 10% chance of shattering the glass if dropped on concrete.

I have only one thing to say about this...

Compared to the 4, the 5c is fast and stylish, and does not look cheap. If there was no 5s, the 5c would be a top seller. If the 5s and 5c where same on spec and price i'd wager there would be more sales of the 5c than 5s just due to number of colours available.

+1 for Opal Fruits

And bring back Marathon bars.

And Jif.

I'll be Hex 32 next week, so I'm officially starting my career as a Grumpy Old Man.

Re: +1 for Opal Fruits

All I know is that when I was a kid you could put them in the fridge for an hour and it would take two hours to dissolve tucked away in your cheek.

Heaven for an 8 year old in the 70's was a chilled Mars bar cut into chunks by your mum to share with your younger brother so you didn't eat all of it and 'spoil your tea later!' .

Oh probably followed by "get back from that bloody TV or you'll get square eyes!"

The irony....

Mines the one with a Blackberry Bold, Samsung SIIx and a set of car keys......

He lost me about 4 seconds into the video

As I have said MANY times before, I seriously hate 5 minutes worth of video for what should just be a couple of images, but this guy has managed to make it worse:

- the incessant ads I have to remove (but that's not his fault, that's Google screwing over what's left of Youtube, basically doing a Microsoft);

- the "promo" sting at the beginning (which is another waste of my time and adds no value whatsoever

- his voice. Sorry, but no. Get a friend who has a more polished presentation if you want to do video. I know I'm picky here, but if you want to waste 5 minutes of my life on something that takes me approx. 15 seconds to flash read if it was just in text you better make it very, very good. And this isn't.

(this is also my problem with the EL Reg podcast - I would love to just have a transcript as I don't have the time to listen to the whole thing).

As for the iPhone 6 itself, I'll just wait and see. First of all, I don't buy any device until it has been in the market for 3..6 months so I don't get the initial problems (and it also removes the need to breathlessly wait for releases or this sort of advance "news" :) ), and secondly I really don't need a *larger* device other than for the (admittedly very faint) hope that it would actually end up with a battery life past half a day, it's one of the reasons I'm VERY interested in the Jolla device as it has a user accessible battery. Otherwise I just buy a 5s which will by then have dropped in price - or a Jolla, but I personally don't like Android that much (too much hard work protecting my privacy).

Oh well - I'll just wait.

Joke

I have to weigh in... because it's important dammit.

The whole Opal fruit/starburst issue needs to be settled once and for all... Because they are NOT basically the same.

They removed the lemon and the lime and instead combined them into a single lemon & lime, so they could add the disgusting blackcurrent.

As a result, I will no longer buy them... they were the only packet of flavoured sweets I would buy and be able to eat every single flavour. The perfect treat during a movie, now they are polluted with the hideous blackcurrent flavour which means left over sweets... or worse still... a blackcurrent sweet being consumed in the dark by mistake.

Flavours may be different in other countries I guess... But they're British dammit and they ruined them by tampering with the flavours, I can live with the name change but not the flavour one.

Oh and Moya used to Opal Fruit out of danger before the damn marketing people got their hands on the damn scripts. :)

Oh... you though I was going to talk about an iphone.... This is far more important than some fruity symbol phone.
