Claimed iPhone 6 SIM Card Trays Point to Space Gray, Gold, and Silver Color Options

Several new photos published today by Letem svetem Applem [Google Translate] show the purported power and volume flex cables as well as three SIM card trays that hint at the color options Apple is planning for the iPhone 6. This report follows a leak from earlier this month that first showcased these two internal flex cables from the iPhone 6, although the parts shown in the two reports are not identical.

Similar to the previous photos but slightly different in layout, the volume flex cable contains both the mute button and volume buttons with a possible larger separation between the two components. The power flex cable also shows the same arrangement of connectors with a potentially larger-sized power button. Though we can't confirm how these cables will appear inside the iPhone 6, mockups and drawings have depicted a redesigned button layout on the iPhone 6 that includes oval-shaped volume buttons and a side-positioned power button.

While the flex cables provide little new insight on the iPhone 6 itself, the supposed SIM card trays hint at the coloring of the iPhone 6. Not surprisingly, the trays suggest the iPhone 6 will keep the same color options as the iPhone 5S -- space gray, gold and silver. Physical mockups have been circulating in all three colors for some time, and a claimed genuine rear shell surfaced in silver, but the full set of three current color options had so far not been seen in claimed genuine iPhone 6 parts.

Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 6 with a larger display as its key selling point. The Cupertino company is reportedly prepping a 4.7-inch model along with a 5.5-inch model as an update to the current 4-inch iPhone 5s. Besides the display, the iPhone 6 may include a faster A8 processor, a thinner design and improved camera optics.

Space grey sucks. Why don't they go back to black? It looks so much better.

Space Grey is amazing! It was one of many reasons to go from "Black & Slate" to the 5S. It's the closest resemblance to the iPhone 4 design language.

I'm not a fan of all of these leaks.. I miss when iPhone releases were more of a surprise
Uh... I dunno where you've been... but the last iPhone that was a surprise was the original iPhone... The second most surprising was 2011... only because until about a week before announcement, everyone expected the "tapered iPhone 5" and all we got was the 4S.

2008 (iPhone 3G) https://www.macrumors.com/2008/05/05/more-3g-iphone-photos-now-in-white/
2009 (iPhone 3GS) https://www.macrumors.com/2009/05/25/unreleased-iphone21-icon-reveals-no-major-physical-changes/

So... yeah... when was it that iPhone announcement were complete surprises?
