iPhone 6c with Touch ID leaked by Apple on the Apple Store ?
Looks like Apple may release a new 4-inch iPhone this year after all. The company appears to have leaked what appears to be an iPhone 5c with Touch ID on its own Apple Store website. Could this be the rumored iPhone 6c? This rumor first hit Reddit around 5:00 a.m. PT, and then YouTube a little while later. The Next Web was first to report the “leak” that’s where we saw it!
The device is pictured among a gallery of images showing off the company’s new iPhone Lightning Dock. We only see it from the front, which reveals an updated Home button without the classic white square, it now looks identical to the Touch ID button included in the iPhone 5s and above.
The iPhone 6c is likely to match the colour scheme of the Apple Watch straps, so expect a black model but no more yellow! Of course, it’s possible this is an honest mistake, someone at Apple HQ may have simply messed up. Still, it’s hard not to jump to the conclusion that we’re staring at a totally new iPhone.
If Apple does update the iPhone 5c the new device will likely arrive during an official event later this year. We’ll be on the lookout for any more news though, in case the company decides to drop the device without a big public announcement.
