Alleged iPhone 6 Back Cover Shown Off in New Photo

Despite a variety of iPhone 6 mockups and case leaks, there haven't been as many part leaks for the iPhone 6 outside of what could be the front panel of the device, the backlight panel and the possible batteries. Now, Macfixit Australia has obtained what looks to be the back cover for the 4.7-inch silver iPhone 6.

Back-Cover
Like many of the mockups, this photo also includes the antenna breaks near the top and bottom portions of the back. It also appears to have a green film on top of it, with silver poking through near the camera and flash holes near the top, indicating that this could be the white / silver iPhone 6. The cover also appears to be made out of a thin metal and includes clear cutouts for the camera and flash, unlike a lot of mockups, which also adds some weight to its possible authenticity.

The cover also appears to have the much-rumored round corners, which are similar to the design of the iPod Touch. This also keeps the iPhone in line with both the iPad Mini and iPad Air, which have more rounded back corners.

Aside from larger 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays, the iPhone 6 is rumored to have an improved A8 processor, an improved camera with optical image stabilization, new backlighting technology and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

For what? No phone hardware will be mentioned, if any hardware at all. WWDC is all about development.

WWDC Hardware Announcements:

2003 - PowerMac G5
2004 - Cinema Displays
2005 - Transition to x86
2006 - Mac Pro; Xserve
2007 - iPhone; various iPods
2008 - iPhone 3G
2009 - iPhone 3GS; Spec updates to Macbook Pro, Mac Pro, and Macbook Air
2010 - iPhone 4
2011 - no significant hardware
2012 - Macbook Pro with Retina; spec updates for the rest of the Macbook line
2013 - New Mac Pro; Airport Extreme; Time Capsule; other spec updates

Can we please put this developer-only nonsense to rest now? WWDC Keynote is not exclusive to developer announcements only. WWDC Keynotes almost always have some major hardware announcement.

Nice to see Apple simply doing iterations on design rather then, I don't know, do something risky, innovative and interesting like everyone else?!?!??

Absolutely ugly and plain, looks like a toy, nothing will beat the iPhone 4 design and the build up that led up to it. Apple straight up got lazy and has no new unique ideas left in the tank, mailing this in for the sheeple who will buy it no matter what. Why bother when everyone will buy it.
I personally think they should make it in the shape of a ball so you can play catch while making phone calls.
