Claimed 'iPhone 6s' Box Appears Similar to 'iPhone 6s Plus' Packaging

A new image of the packaging for the "iPhone 6s" has turned up online (via MacX), appearing similar to images of a box for the "iPhone 6s Plus" that were shared in late August. Both boxes showcase a koi pond-like fish against a white surface, suggesting the rumored packaging could be what Apple will use to box the next-generation iPhones, which are expected to be the centerpiece of the company's September 9 event tomorrow.

The fish image has also begun rumors surrounding the "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus," suggesting the new smartphones will include a motion wallpaper feature. Similar in spirit to the dynamic wallpapers Apple introduced in iOS 7, the supposed update would bring something more akin to the in-depth motion backgrounds of the Apple Watch and will feature images from fish in a koi pond to different color smoke clouds.

I'm really hoping Apple opens motion wallpapers up to developers; my Jony-Ive-swaying-in-light-breeze wallpaper needs to be a reality.

It just sucks that they'll likely be keeping the 16gb version. The new motion wallpapers will be nice but I have a feeling a lot of people won't feel much incentive to upgrade, especially if you already have a 6.


Are you suggesting that motion wallpapers will be the only new feature of the phone?

Someone saw 16GB and got angry.

I used to be very excited about these events and articles like this. I am still looking forward to them - but it is just no longer the same, somehow less exciting ... maybe I'm getting too old or I am just too happy with what I have ... but I guess part of it is that rumors in recent years were way too accurate and took the surprise out of those events.

I'll never understand why people think a phone needs to be upgraded every year. I would assume people getting the 6S are 4S, 5 or 5S owners, not 6 owners.

Presumably it got damaged during assembly, and so was discarded in a bin.. and the contents of that bin found their way to someone with a camera...
