As the expected release date of Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 6 approaches, leaked photos and products continue to surface that feature a new form-factor in 4.7″ and 5.5″ sizes.

Thanks to multiple OEM manufacturers, TechZany was able to get access to various cases and parts for the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6. Although we haven’t yet seen the official housing or back casing of the iPhone 6, these cases and parts come from a very credible source in China. They’re modelled from the iPhone 6 “dummy phone” which is used in the factories for iPhone 6 prototyping. These parts and new form factors have also been confirmed within the supply chain.

It is expected that the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will be available in September, following the annual hardware update schedule. However, the 5.5″ iPhone 6 will not be available until later in the year, or early-2015 due to manufacturer issues with hardware design, according to multiple sources.

The hardware mockups, dummy models, and cases that have emerged seem to follow a consistent design on the 4.7″ model. As for the 5.5″ “iPhone 6S” or “iPhone Note” (As it’s being called by some Chinese manufacturers), there is the possibility that Apple will reveal this later in the year, rather than at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2nd 2014. It may also have some unique features or technology that isn’t currently being tested nor available in the supply chain and therefore, would not be demonstrated in these preliminary case designs.

Preview: Apple iPad Mini 2

As the expected release date for the iPad Mini 2 approaches, leaked photos continue to surface that show the new device in many new colors. These include silver, gold, and space gray – similar to the newly unveiled iPhone 5S.

Many reports suggest the iPad Mini 2 will not feature a Retina display, nor a new form factor. It’s likely that we could see Apple Touch ID implemented, with the new Apple A7 processing chip.

At first, you may not be able to see the difference between the original iPad Mini, and iPad Mini 2 and that’s because the outer shells are quite similar. It features a few small design tweaks, such as the reflective Apple logo that has been pressed into the aluminum, rather than engraved on top. The internal components, currently available, suggest an identical microphone and speaker, with minor camera improvements.

Because the form-factor of both iPad Mini and iPad Mini 2 are nearly identical, you will be able to continue using your favourite iPad Mini case or Smart Cover. It’s expected that Apple will announce new cases, potentially similar to those found on the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

Thanks to some OEM factories, such as Hon Hai / Foxconn, I was able to get my hands on various parts for the new iPad Mini 2. Although I don’t have all available parts, a “space gray” iPad Mini 2 has also been confirmed in the supply chain.

 

Expected Announcement Date: October 22nd 2013

Expected Release Date: November 2013
