New pictures show off waterproof Apple iPhone 6?

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.

Don't you remember that iOS 7 brought complete water proofing to all iOS device. I saw it on the internet, so it must be true

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.

Maybe Samsungs design head joined Apple.

uglier and much taller, it is almost HTC One M8 size with a 4,7" screen, all hail the new king of bezels.
