iPhone 6 Rear Shell Leaked Pictures with Protruding Camera

The next generation “fruit” smartphone is set to be launched this fall. There are a lot of different images you can find that demonstrate the possible future device. The new iPhone 6 rear shell leaked pictures, for example, show the round true tone LED flash along with a new camera with an ipod-contract-like protruding lens.

Most iPhone 6 leaked photos demonstrate the same LED flash being circular true tone. Some images can be different in some details, but it is still interesting to see what Apple could release iPhone 6 in mid-September.

Experts believe that the next smartphone will be very skinny. This is why these iPhone 6 leaked pics rear shell show the camera that protrudes out. It can’t be located inside the gadget which is very thin, just like most rumors suggest.

Some people couldn’t believe that Apple is capable of inserting the true tone flash option into the round cutout. The latest iPhone 6 leaked photos demonstrate that everything is possible, especially if this is the Cupertino-based company. The digital camera in the new smartphone should work great offering great options and real functions as an improved camera.

The leaks came from Sonny Dickson who is often correct about the predictions, but just as often mistaken about Apple’s future lines.

Are you looking forward to see the improved handset based on this improved idea of iPhone 6 shell with LED flash and camera? There might be more leaks coming soon as the official release of this handset is just around the corner. Apple is holding its famous September event in a couple of weeks from now where the company is expected to announce its new iDevices line.

Look forward for September 9 to learn more.

iPhone Early Upgrade Program in Time for iPhone 6 Launch

Current iPhones are offered by carriers and Apple at $199 if you are buying the 2-year service agreement. Such deals mean you are getting a 2-year contract and become tied to one carrier until you decide to unlock your iPhone at an affordable price without losing your warranty. iPhone 6 upgrade might be a bit more expensive, as experts believe that Apple can add up to $100 to the basic smartphone price this September.

At the same time, there are reports about new Verizon, AT&T and Sprint Early upgrade program being rolled out in the end of August. Apple is expected to make this move ahead of its iPhone 6 release in mid-September, as noted by blogger Mark Gurman. iPhone early upgrade program is created to boost handset sales in the U.S. Will it be cheaper than getting the unlocked handset at $700-$900 and the $199 offer with a 2-year plan?

It’s hard to say right now whether AT&T early upgrade program or any other carrier’s program can interest Americans to buy AT&T iPhones through such financing deals.

AT&T, Sprint and Verizon early upgrade program should be offered from August 20 through this date might change. T-Mobile network should also offer this financing opportunity, but this is a pilot program and its rules can be different once Apple officially starts such plans.

iPhone 6 sale date is expected on September 19th, according to some analysts. Do you think it is a good deal to get iPhone early upgrade for model 6 through such financing source?

When Does iPhone 6 Release Date. Will It be on September 9?

When does iPhone 6 release date? Tuesday, September 9! Some authoritative editions such as Re/code and The Wall Street Journal report this date. iPhone 6 will come with much larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays.

There were different suggestions about release date. Someone said it would be on September 14 or even on Christmas time. But everybody were interested when iPhone 6 release date.

The 5.5-inch model is at the centre of delay talk but given Apple is unlikely to run a second event close afterwards so logic suggests both models will be announced, even if they have differing release dates.

What’s New We Expect in September When iPhone 6 Release Date?

AppleInsider says that with this new process, “the liquid metal flows through a mold’s cavity that contains the transparent material and hardens at a predetermined rate of contraction, ‘grabbing’ the glass and eliminating tolerance issues,” thus creating “an integrally formed display assembly.”

  • Apple’s new A8 processor with 2GB RAM. Apple's iPhone 6 will reportedly utilize a 20-nanometer A8 chip from TSMC.
  • Touch ID fingerprint sensor
  • Improved 8-megapixel camera. For example, the iPhone 6 may incorporate OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)

Latest iPhone 6 renders compare potential gold, space gray, and silver colors. The Lux iPhone 6 is ready for pre-order just in time before Apple launches the iPhone 6. But the catch is, the consumers will have to wait a whole month after the release in September. The Lux iPhone 6 is built with a 4.7-inch,128GB model (which is faster and bigger), and is available in 24 karats yellow gold, 24 karats pink gold, 24 karats pure platinum, and the classic black and white, the company stated in a release.

After intr0duction on September 9, the iPhone will likely become available for purchase on a corresponding Friday roughly a week and a half later, possibly on September 19.

iOS 8 vs. iOS 7 Jailbreak: Activation Lock, Boot Logo, Baseband

Since iOS 8 hasn’t gone public yet and developers continue testing its betas seeded by Apple, it is hard to say what iOS 8 baseband your iPhone or iPad will get after you install this firmware in the fall when it is officially released by the Cupertino-based tech company. It is also hard to say when the exact iOS 8 jailbreak release date is. Still there are some answers to the questions already.

Firstly, let’s speak about the jailbreak release. The Evad3rs might not be the first team to present the new iOS 8 jailbreaking launch as there is a new team of hackers from China who presented an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x devices while other hackers are known to be working on the next firmware exploits and don’t want to waste their discoveries right now. Secondly, there is still now iOS 8 activation bypass as once again, this firmware hasn’t become public and official yet.

Checkout iOS 8 vs. iOS 7 Jailbreak Report

It took the Evad3rs a couple of months to create the first iOS 7 jailbreak last year. When Apple only launched this firmware, hackers found out the company killed all their exploits so they had to search for the new holes and possibilities in jailbreaking this operating system update.

Just like it happened with late iOS 6 firmware versions, Apple patched the exploits used in Evasi0n7 tool beginning with iOS 7.1 making it impossible to jailbreak iOS 7.1 and 7.1.x smartphones and tablets for another several months.

With iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1, 7.1.2 releases we’ve heard hackers were able to use iOS 7 jailbreak for their personal gadgets but they didn’t hurry to make their exploits support the public jailbreak saying that they are preserving exploits for iOS 8 baseband jailbreak. Then the team of Chinese hackers unexpectedly launched their iOS 7.1 and 7.1.x jailbreak called Pangu capable of performing this task. They were rumored to use the exploits found and kept by famous hackers and some people in jailbreaking community said they just wasted the holes since Apple would patch them before it updates its mobile operating system.

iOS 8 Supported Devices

Unlike iOS 7, the new iOS 8 will stop supporting iPhone 4. Now only users with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 5S, 5c and later versions will be able to update to iOS 8.

iOS 8 Activation Lock Requiring iCloud Account

The new security option introduced with Find My iPhone and Activation Lock in iOS 7 will continue in iOS 8 so get ready to receive iOS 8 activation error if you are going to buy a used iPhone or iPad with this operating system and credentials of the previous owner.

The companies that now offer bypass for iOS 7 activation error will most likely offer the similar service for iOS 8 activation problems.

How to Change iOS 8 Boot Logo

Once you jailbreak your new iOS 8 operating system version [and a lot of people will surely do this if hackers release the untethered jailbreak soon after the official firmware upgrade] you might like to change iOS 8 boot logo and there will surely be ways how to do so.

Just keep an eye on the official Apple news to remember update to iOS 8, jailbreak this version, get past possible Activation error, update your boot logo and use different hacks that will make your iDevice much better and easier to use.
