Check out these parts, allegedly heading for the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet
With the majority of recent leaks pertaining to the iPhone focusing on the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6, this morning we have some pictures to show you that relate to the rumored 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet. These photos feature internal parts like flex cables and SIM trays that allegedly will be inside the larger-screened iPhone model. The flex cables are for the power button, and the volume/mute button.

We suggest viewing these pictures through your cynical eye, and also recommend that you take the story with a grain of salt for double protection. It is hard to say with any degree of certainty that these parts are heading for a 5.5 inch iPhone. Take the blue colored SIM tray for example. There have been no reports of a blue iPhone coming down the pike, although it is possible that these parts need to go through another round of the manufacturing process that will change the color of the tray.

Apple is believed to be introducing the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 in September, with the unveiling of the larger screened model taking place as soon as the following month. As we told you earlier today, Apple has reportedly informed its supply chain that mass production of the 5.5 inch iPhone will start in September.

but that wouldn't stop them from making money.
articles and news related to apple attract more readers(when compared to any other company) on almost every tech site.

Largely because it is highly over exaggerated BS that needs to be corrected lest some poor sap buy something that isn't what they were promised. Even this article is about the most trivial of things yet it will have to be parroted by every local village idiot who just happens to be an Apple fanboy (every news site has one).

Oh no doubt it did, Samsung fanboys are not too far off from the Apple fans. Comparing yours to them isn't doing you any favors whatsoever.

It is but only for the faithful, the unwavering. You have to understand, these are parts of a future iPhone. To the believers it is as if the bible was being revealed right in front of them piece by piece. As if the ghost of Jobs (blessed be his name) himself was sending them clues.

The SIM trays could be from any device, not just an Apple device. Those ribbons could also be from almost any device, including a re-designed iPhone 6 that has the same size display. There's no real way to know for sure if these are for a device larger than the iPhone 5/5S without it being compared to the same kind of ribbon from an iPhone 5/5S.

Would Apple launch iphone 6 as DYI device, and we will have to assemble them part by part....???? If no then why are we seeing post on every leak part of iphone 6.....??? Now show the complete package, not something resembling project ara wannabe........
