And the iPhone 6 rumors kept rolling in.
This time around: A video and images have leaked of what is purported to be the rear shell of Apple's upcoming iDevice.
Images and video were leaked to MacRumors by a Russian-based company called Feld & Volk, which says it has some midproduction units of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.
As with all rumors and leaked images, take these with a grain of salt. But if the pictures and video are to believed, there's a cutout around the Apple log on back, leading some to believe that the Apple logo could light up, like it does on the MacBook.
But the cutout is much more likely going to be used for a nonmetal Apple logo — like it is on the iPad — which will allow for better cell reception.
A separate set of leaked images show that the iPhone 6 will come in a dark black color, much darker than the "Space Gray" color that the iPhone 5S comes in. As 9to5Mac points out, that raises a flag about the credibility of the images; until now, only gray pieces have been spotted out in the wild.
