iPhone 6 Renders Reimagined as iPhone 6c

Last week we posted renderings of what the iPhone 6 might look like based on leaked design drawings of the unreleased device. Since that time, we've seen early cases and possible design molds for the device.

Ferry Passchier, the designer we commissioned for the original designs, has rethought the design as if it was modeled after the iPhone 5c with colorful plastic backings. Passchier produced these renderings with that in mind:

iphone6c-back

iphone6c-front

The original renderings assumed it followed Apple's aluminum design of the iPhone 5s, though an all-aluminum design would introduce issues with Apple's antenna design.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 6 this fall, and we expect to see more design and part leaks as production starts ramping up.

Rethought? Really? Don't think much thought went into this, this is just a rescaled 5C. This might be how it looks, but don't claim a lot of thought went into it - it is basically sticking with a design (and I actually really like the 5C, feels nice in the hand, nice touch to the surface and looks good in most colors - but this green is too extreme for me, but others might like it)

Still ugly. Jony Ive has poor taste in color.


I love it. Plus, I can get a matching Porsche:

I guess I'm one of the few who really likes the 5C. My only complaint has been the lack of higher capacity versions. If the 6 is designed like the 5C and has a 64 gb version, I'm getting it.

This is no official or Jony Ive design - it is a mockup from someone pretending to think like Apple but falling short.

Hmmm very probable.

4.7inch plastic phone with bezels, first out the gate.
5.5inch alloy flagship, no bezel (lcd to antenna band), with the dual flash, later...

Actually it's not just a rescaled 5C. The volume and power buttons are based on the drawings and rumors.

I kinda like the idea of having a 4,7" iPhone, but I don't want it to be a C-device. I don't want to go bigger in order to get a premium iPhone.

About the color: blue is the only acceptable color other then black :D


The yellow iPhone 5C is awesome, works great with all the different color cases, especially blue, yellow, and black.
