Apple iPhone 6S hardware pics leak, appear to refute several recent rumors

We’re probably just over two months away from the launch of the next iPhone models. Rumors have suggested we’ll be seeing the introduction of an iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, as last year’s pair of size options returns with some upgraded hardware. But just what’s changing? The arrival of Force Touch has been one of the less controversial suggestions, and given the support it’s managed to pick up, feels almost like a certainty. Other rumors have been more difficult to get a read on, especially in the absence of evidence. Well as luck would have it, evidence is just what we’re turning to this afternoon, as a number of images give us what may be our first real look at the iPhone 6S in the flesh.

Well – parts of the iPhone 6S, anyway. And while not fully assembled, these frame components offer a lot of answers about the phone as a whole. Compared to the current 4.7-inch iPhone 6, the external changes are positively minor, if any are to be found at all – there’s no dual-rear-camera design, and those antenna bands haven’t managed to disappear, either. Reportedly, this thing measures just about exactly the same as last year’s iPhone 6, suggesting we’ll have to look within for anything new.

And sure enough, there is evidence of progress within, even if minimal: stuff like new layouts for the phone’s mounting hardware, accommodating redesigned logic boards (see comparison above). We’re promised that info on the circuit boards will be arriving in the days to come – there’s more to this leak than what we’re getting today.
