Images of what's claimed to be the packaging for the iPhone 6 have surfaced online, as we approach peak iPhone mania with just weeks to go until the next-gen handset drops.
Apparently taken by an Apple beta tester and subsequently published by Tech Radar, the snaps depict what seems to be a pretty convincing retail box for the handset, ahead of its grand unveiling in September.
It certainly looks suitably slick and is in keeping enough with Apple’s previous packaging to be the real thing.
As some sites have pointed out, though, there are a few reasons to doubt the photos’ validity. Not least the fact that the much touted Health app isn’t even featured on the box.
That seems a bit rum, given that it’s set to be iOS 8’s standout feature and is likely to figure heavily in ads for the handset.
It’s also been noted that the smartphone we’re assured is the iPhone 6 looks more than a little bit like clone devices that have been doing the rounds on the likes of AliBaba of late.
Still, that was something people also claimed about our own leaked images of the iPhone 6’s rear panel that offered evidence that the Apple logo may light up for notifications. And we can absolutely vouch ours were bona fide. So who’s to say these aren’t also legit?
As well as 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen options, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a more rounded design, a much-improved 13-megapixel camera and a larger battery.
