As we near the launch of the iPhone 6, expected this fall, we’re sure to see more leaked parts. Today, we have the circuitry that ties everything together, the logic board. The logic board is the hardware that attaches directly to the frame of the iPhone, and all other components, such as the display, camera, A-series processor, and more, attach to it. The holes for the screws in this logic board match to leaked rear casings that we’ve already seen, adding to the validity of this leak. Not only that, but the larger logic board confirms that the iPhone 6 will indeed be larger than the iPhone 5s, as the logic board is too large to fit into the case for the iPhone 5s.
To the right, you can see how the logic board lines up with a leaked case. This doesn’t completely confirm that these parts are genuine, however it does make the validity of these leaks nearly certain. With all of these leaks, it would actually be more surprising if the iPhone didn’t look like this, and feature a larger screen.
Production on the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 has reportedly began, which means we may see more part leaks than we were seeing. It also makes the release date of the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 almost certainly in late September or early October. The 5.5 inch iPhone 6 will apparently be launched along with the iPads later this year, potentially as late as the first quarter of 2015.
