The iPhone 6 body has leaked countless times over the past year in various forms, and now actual (and apparently genuine) production cases have made their way into the hands of online tech aficionados.</p> <p>The video above, courtesy of YouTube user iCrackUriDevice, shows off one of these rear cases, and it clearly shows off Apple&#39;s new design in all its glory.</p> <p>It&#39;s immediately obvious that the iPhone 6 will likely arrive with a bigger screen. The case is larger than the iPhone 5s, and its thinner, with a much rounder design.</p> <p>One big change is the relocation of the power button from the top to the right hand side, where it will be easily accessible with your thumb, Samsung Galaxy-style.</p> <p>Looking at the rear, the pill-shaped flash cutout has been replaced by a circular one, suggesting that Apple has either ditched its dual two-tone LED flash, or it&#39;s managed to cram both LEDs into a circular space.</p> <p>The volume buttons however, have appeared to do the reverse. They are now a thinner&nbsp;pill shape, falling in line with the iPod Touch, as opposed to the circular buttons currently found on the iPhone 5s.</p> <p>Looking at the internals of the case, we can see a slight recess over the Apple logo cutout. This, combined with the fact that previous Apple logos weren&#39;t left as cutouts, suggests that the logo will light up, like the ones found on its MacBook brothers.</p> <p>This is supported by previous photos leaked by&nbsp;<a href="http://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/news/2014/07/iphone_6_new_unseen_photos_could_confirm_light_up_notifications/" target="_blank">uSwitch</a>&nbsp;(with the aid of famed Apple leaker Sonny Dickson), which show off the rear housing of an iPhone 6, with a plastic panel that&#39;s thin enough to let line shine through it.</p> <p>Apart from attracting moths, the logo could be used as a blinking notification light - a handy function if the device is face down.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="600" height="450" title="Glow-tastic" alt="Apple iPhone 6" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone-6-logo_2.jpg?1409216688" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Back in June,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.gsmarena.com/exclusive_iphone_6_sized_up_to_galaxy_s5-news-8773.php" target="_blank">GSM Arena</a>&nbsp;snaffled a picture of the phone alongside its likely main rival, the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review" target="_blank">Samsung Galaxy S5.</a></p> <p>The image shows off the expected larger screen, along with a clearly visible power switch on the right edge.&nbsp;</p> <p>Another iPhone 6 dummy leak courtesy of <a href="http://www.gforgames.com/gadgets/space-grey-iphone-6-vs-iphone-5s-htc-one-m8-44032/">G for Games</a>&nbsp;also emerged,&nbsp;this time apparently of a non-working dummy model.</p> <p>The first image above shows it next to an iPhone 5s and HTC One (M8).

The system is much more secure than magnetic attachment, and if if true, the iPhone 6 will be even more of a formidable pocket camera than the iPhone 5s already is.</p> <p>One month after that,&nbsp;Chinese analyst Sun Chang Xu stated that the iPhone 6&#39;s camera will increase its 1.5&micro; pixel size to 1.7&micro;. That&#39;s close to the HTC One (M8)&#39;s 2&micro; pixel size &ndash; the much-touted &quot;Ultrapixel&quot; camera that&#39;s designed to excel at low-light shooting.

It&rsquo;ll also allow for a longer shutter speed, which will result in more&nbsp;light being captured, with less blur to boot.

The iPhone 6 could also be the first iPhone to sport 2GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, though we imagine the latter will bump up the price by a considerable amount.</p> <p>In July,&nbsp;Chinese site,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.cnbeta.com/articles/309147.htm" target="_blank">CNBeta</a>, reported that the iPhone 6&#39;s main processor will actually be called the A8 &ndash; and it won&#39;t increase the amount of CPU cores used by the A7. That means that while pretty much every other top of the range smartphone is quad-core, Apple&#39;s apparently happy sticking with dual-core. But that doesn&#39;t mean it&#39;s going to be slow: it may be clocked at 2GHz or more (the iPhone 5s&#39; A7 chip is 1.3GHz) and will be smaller and more efficient than the A7.</p> <p>Another Chinese site,&nbsp;<a href="http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&amp;jsonp=vglnk_jsonp_14037963350866&amp;key=c6684b5502fa2a415a104d824988c196&amp;libId=a128a439-4785-4446-ab8d-554763e073ee&amp;loc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.macrumors.com%2F2014%2F06%2F26%2F128gb-iphone6-5-5%2F&amp;v=1&amp;out=https%3A%2F%2Ftranslate.google.com%2Ftranslate%3Fsl%3Dauto%26tl%3Den%26js%3Dy%26prev%3D_t%26hl%3Den%26ie%3DUTF-8%26u%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.feng.com%252FiPhone%252Fnews%252F2014-06-26%252FSources_said_5.5_inches_iPhone_6_will_have_128_GB_version_587962.shtml%26edit-text%3D%26act%3Durl&amp;ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pocket-lint.com%2Fnews%2F129598-apple-s-5-5-inch-iphone-6-may-get-128gb-and-ois-exclusively&amp;title=Only%20the%205.5-Inch%20iPhone%206%20May%20Offer%20128GB%20Models%20-%20Mac%20Rumors&amp;txt=Google%20Translate" target="_blank">Wei Feng</a>,&nbsp;believes that that larger 5.5in iPhone 6 model will also land with a massive 128GB of internal storage, which should satiate the lust of most diehard media fans.

All previous versions of iOS have debuted with a new bit of hardware, and given that we know iOS 8 will be out in the autumn, it stands to reason that it will arrive on the iPhone 6.</p> <p>So what&#39;s new about it? Rather a lot, actually.</p> <p>For starters, iOS 8 will mark a major break with the past for Apple, in that third-party apps will have greater access to the OS&#39; inner workings. You&#39;ll now be able to install third-party widgets into the Notification Centre, add third-party keyboards such as Swype and SwiftKey.</p> <p>Apps will also be able to install extensions within other apps. So, for instance, tapping on an image within Apple&#39;s Photos apps will give you the option to apply filters from other photography apps you may have installed.</p> <p>They&#39;ll even be able to work with Touch ID, so the possibility of paying for an eBay purchase with the tap of a finger is now very real. But, because of the way Apple will still control security, third-party apps won&#39;t themselves have access to your fingerprint or other sensitive info - so you won&#39;t need to worry about your data being stolen.</p> <p>As has long been rumoured, iOS 8 will also see the arrival of a Health app. It&#39;ll work with the new HealthKit tool for devs and will collect data from all of your third-party health and fitness apps, syncing and presenting it all in the one place.</p> <p>Even without any hardware developments, Health could prove a very useful app. Health and fitness trackers are notoriously bad at working well with each other, meaning that you usually have to go into several apps in order to view all of your data. Apple&#39;s solution could put an end to this, and big partners such as Nike are already on board.</p> <p>That said, we wouldn&#39;t be surprised to see Apple include a hardware feature or two to make the most of the new app. The iPhone 5s&#39; M7 motion co-processor is already capable of tracking and analysing movement data, but if the iPhone 6 included a heart-rate monitor such as the one on the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review">Samsung Galaxy S5</a>, that would give it greater powers. Or maybe that&#39;s something that will feature on the fabled <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iwatch/review">iWatch</a>...</p> <p>Gaming should be big news on the iPhone 6. As well as having a larger, more finger-friendly screen and more powerful processor, it&#39;ll also gain new skills via iOS 8. Apple&#39;s invented a new programming language, called Swift, and a developer tool called Metal, and together they should bring console-quality graphics to the iPhone.</p> <p>At WWDC, Apple showed off a demo of a game called <em>Zen Garden</em>, which looked seriously nice. The App Store is also being reworked to make it easier to find the best games (and apps in general), and we expect big releases to arrive with iOS 8 in the autumn.</p> <p>And then there&#39;s Continuity. That&#39;s Apple&#39;s name for a raft of services which link your iPhone to your iPad and your Mac, so long as it&#39;s running the new <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/mac-os-x-yosemite/review">OS X Yosemite</a> (which will also debut in the autumn). Chief among them is Handoff, which will let you start a task on one device and continue it on another. For instance you could tap out half an email on your iPhone, then stroll over to your Mac and with a single click on the Mail icon, finish it off there.&nbsp;You&#39;ll also be able to pick up phone calls on your Mac using your iPhone&#39;s connection, or create a hot spot with a single click when you don&#39;t have any Wi-Fi.</p> <p>And we could go on: iCloud Drive will bring Dropbox-like document storage and syncing to iOS; Family Sharing will enable you to share iTunes and App Store purchases with up to six family members; HomeKit will let Apple control all of your home-automation gadgets; mail and messaging will get new abilities; Siri will be smarter; Photos will be synced across devices...

So September is still looking likely.</p> <p><strong>Update 06/08/14:</strong> Both the <a href="http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2014/08/05/apple-to-introduce-new-iphones-at-sept-9-event/" target="_blank">Wall Street Journal</a> and tech site <a href="http://recode.net/2014/08/05/codered-apple-to-hold-iphone-event-on-sept-9/" target="_blank">Re/code </a>are reporting that Apple will hold a launch event on 9 September, with a predicted release date of 19 September. Apple has, unsurprisingly, declined to comment, and there&#39;s no sign of an official invite at this stage. Stay tuned for more info, as and when we get it.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/smartphones/top-ten">These are the 10 best smartphones in the world right now</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="604" height="453" title="Price and release date" alt="Apple iPhone 6" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone-6-render_3.jpg?1409216688" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Jump straight to: </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iphone-6/review" target="_blank"><strong>Apple iPhone 6 - build and screen</strong></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iphone-6/review/more-megapixels" target="_self"><strong>Apple iPhone 6 - camera</strong></a></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iphone-6/review/beefier-insides-cavernous-storage-and-sensors-galore" target="_self">Apple iPhone 6 - processor, storage and battery</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Preview </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><legend>Carousel Extras</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Apple iPhone 6 preview </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What kind of phone will Apple reveal next month?

So it might be the most on-the-nose image of the iPhone 6 yet, but it doesn&#39;t offer up a whole lot of surprises or new information about the smartphone.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s most likely coming in a trio of colour options &ndash; gold, black, and silver &ndash; since all three appear on the poster. In addition, according to China Telecom, it will support a range of networks: WCDMA, CDMA2000, GSM, CDMA1X and two kinds of 4G LTE network.</p> <p>China Telecom&#39;s poster represents what feels like the millionth pre-release image of the iPhone 6, which must be the most leaked smartphone in history.

From there, you&rsquo;ll be able to get the battery swapped without charge at an Apple Store or authorized service provider.</p> <p>However, if you have a cracked screen that impedes opening up the device, you may need to pay to fix that issue before moving ahead with the replacement process. This program extends warranty coverage of the battery to two years from the purchase date or 1 March 2015, whichever is longer.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://ssl.apple.com/support/iphone5-battery/">Apple</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ios-7/18-ways-youre-unknowingly-killing-your-iphone-battery/feature">18 ways you&rsquo;re unknowingly killing your iPhone battery</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Amazon acquires Twitch game streaming service </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Earlier this summer, it seemed certain that YouTube and Google were set to acquire Twitch, the wildly popular video game livestreaming service.

ready to make you wish you&rsquo;d instead hurled your 69p at a squirrel.</p> <p>Quality collections pepper App Store pages and there&rsquo;s a regular indie game showcase to surface little-known gems. However, pride of place is still often taken by grindfests designed to suck coins from your bank account, like a demented, malevolent vacuum cleaner with a cash addiction.&nbsp;</p> <p>Apple seemingly recognises the value of games as part of a greater ecosystem, but not always the value of quality titles in and off themselves; or alternatively, it doesn&rsquo;t care and is simply happy making money by foisting freemium garbage on to as many people as possible.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-iphone-6/review">Apple iPhone 6 preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The app store has had a revamp recently" alt="Why I don’t want to see an Apple games console" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/apple-games-app-store-1.jpg?1408784581" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A DIFFERENT KIND OF GAMING </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Perhaps most importantly, the cream of iOS has always been heavy on innovation, in part due to the lack of traditional controls on touchscreen devices. And the more games I play on the iPhone or iPad, the less I clamour for traditional gaming experiences.&nbsp;</p> <p>Perhaps it&rsquo;s a question of age - wanting something new after the countless games I&rsquo;ve played since first gawping in wide-eyed wonder at a <em>Space Invaders</em> cabinet as a kid. Or maybe I know I can grab my Vita if I want something with a D-pad and buttons. But I&rsquo;d sooner immerse myself in intuitive multitouch titles such as <em>Year Walk</em> and <em>Eliss Infinity</em>, and encourage more such innovation, than hope Apple desperately tries to shoehorn iOS gaming into an Xbox- or PlayStation-shaped mould, on a relatively distant TV screen, with all the associated baggage and expectations.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Even if the company instead went with an overhauled, powered-up Apple TV that took gaming more seriously - something I&rsquo;ve previously&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/opinion-amazon-s-fire-tv-shows-it-s-time-apple-tv-embrace-gaming/feature">argued Apple should consider&nbsp;</a>- there&rsquo;s a risk of fragmentation and further c<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/will-objectivity-be-thrown-under-bus-google-and-apple-trade-video-game-exclusivity-promotion/feature">lamouring for exclusives</a>, along with additional demands on developers already struggling to cope with increasingly diverse iOS hardware.</p> <p>With traditional consoles firmly entrenched in a hardcore gaming mindset, but mobile&rsquo;s tendrils snugly enveloping the mainstream consumer, it&rsquo;s hard to see how Apple would benefit in squaring up to Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. Perhaps there&rsquo;s something obvious no-one&rsquo;s really considered - that &lsquo;Aha!&rsquo; moment in gaming Apple could crack and everyone else would then clamour to copy.

Apple at the time released a comical commercial showing how, yes, you could still reach every part of the screen with a thumb.</p> <p>If you had a big enough thumb. And quite large hands.

Will giant iPhones usher in the death of the iPad? Will every iPhone 6 not only come with a USB cable, but also an iThumbStretcher? Will the iPhone 5s be the last great small smartphone, leaving those who prefer that form factor doomed to pick the least awful device from a desperate race to the bottom between Android manufacturers hell-bent on marketshare over profit? Will the iPhone 6L be suitable for sheltering a small family during a torrential downpour, which they might have been able to avoid entirely had they only been able to use a weather app one-handed while walking home?</p> <p>All I know is this is looking to be the first iPhone I won&rsquo;t really want, but I&rsquo;m sure I&rsquo;ll crack at some point and buy one anyway. And with my iPad, I can at least get in some practice as to what using Apple&rsquo;s giant iPhone will be like.</p> <p><em>iPhone 6 renders by Martin Hajek (<a href="http://www.martinhajek.com"

Your little diver scoots about, unearthing wrecks and treasure in a procedurally generated watery environment, taking his turn to move before various fishy critters follow suit.</p> <p>Loads of surprises and Easter Eggs hide in the depths, and there&rsquo;s a real sense of progression and wonder as you gradually add to collections back on the surface.

It&rsquo;s a hugely entertaining experience and also works across platforms, meaning your Android-device-owning chums needn&rsquo;t sit out and wear a glum expression.</p> <p>There&rsquo;s some IAP, but only for entirely optional challenges and aesthetic enhancements, and those are primarily designed to support the indie who made the game in the first place.
