New pictures show off waterproof Apple iPhone 6?
Earlier on Saturday, we told you that this is the season for Apple iPhone 6 leaks. Now, we might have just seen the best series of photos to date, showing off the upcoming device. And the best news of all, is that Apple has apparently made the next iteration of its iconic smartphone, waterproof. More on that later. The pictures you will find below, resemble the image of the Apple iPhone 6 dummy tweeted last week by Sonny Dickson. And that includes the home button with the gold colored ring.

Holding on tightly to that grain of salt you're taking this story with, you can see photos showing the phone purported to be the Apple iPhone 6, submerged in water. This would be a huge new feature for the iPhone from a competitive standpoint. It would come in the same year that the Samsung Galaxy S5, and the Sony Xperia Z2, both came out of their boxes able to withstand submersion in up to 1 meter (3.2 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. And the upcoming LG G3 is expected to join the club when it is launched soon.

Compared with the Apple iPhone 5s, we can see just how much larger the 4.7 inch screen is going to look on this device, and how thin the phone will be. After you check out the slideshow below, feel free to give us your opinion on what could be the next iPhone (like you need an invitation), in the box below.


Thanks for the tip, Alex!

Seeing as how none of the images showed it to be "ON" I wouldn't be too surprised if our bro there was not mad. Also, DAMN it is ugly, who the hell designed that thing.

Nope I'm pretty happy. I'm not getting iPhone 6 either way but are you mad because I came up with a different theory?

No, but don't you think an iPod touch with a fingerprint sensor sounds kinda weird?

Actually it would make complete sense especially if you want to buys games and app from the App Store, just like the iPhone 5S. Remember the Rumors of having a fingerprint sensor for the iPad Air? It would be the same concept here. Just saying.

lol Wut? I wouldn't be surprised if this image is photoshopped, but saying that it is impossible for Apple to make a waterproof iPhone is just stupid.

That design is uglier than iPhone 5s. Maybe it is better if Apple just keep sticking with the same design.

I concur. This new design looks like it was beaten severely with the ugly stick and it doesn't even have that hideous "Beats" logo on it yet.

If Apple wants to copy the HTC One, maybe they should just spend a few more billions and buy HTC as well.

Then they'd own the past, present, and future of "Beats" and have a nicer design for their next iPhone.

Next there will be a rumor that the iPhone 6 is blend-proof.

Might need a bigger blender than the old iPhone, but I think it will blend just fine :)

Great link. It looks like the images we are looking at are from some sort of crude prototype or fake that someone engineered.

It can be a dummy unit (and in that case the leaker won't have any problem by putting it into water), so I'll take this with a grain of salt

Apple needs to put headphone jack on top, The bottom is awkward when u listening music and browsing web on your thumb

Design looks awful compare to HTC one better dont compare. The back side black strips is copy of HTC one though we dont know its the real iphone or not

The big question is - IS the iphone 6 going to be URINE proof?
Many users use the phone while going to the bathroom - they use it with one hand while using the other hand to do their business. The current iPhones allow a user to use their phone with one hand while 'draining the lizard' or 'paying the water bill'.
BUT....the new iPhones look to be a bit big. Apple is wanting to make these new devices waterproof because they realize that many users will drop them in toilets and/or urinals.

Makes perfect sense.

Except there is a small slot for urine to flow into the iPhone's new power system. This is why the phone is so thin -- a very small battery and a urine power generator. Access is controlled by Apple's new "Pee ID" system.

Meanwhile, I will be using a OnePlus One and could buy 2 for the price of the still smaller iPhone 6.
Just sold my Nexus 5 to someone in Sri Lanka for around 360.00. CHA CHING!!!

I'm calling fake. The black strip looks painted on the back, especially in the top left. The "sapphire glass" is way to scratched to be sapphire. And the power button is very wobbly looking. I can't see apple making a phone that bad.

The ring outside the home button should light up when the phones on
