According to a Chinese website, Laoyaoba, the Apple iPhone 6 will sport a new haptic feedback technology when it starts getting shipped. The report claims that the device will be shipped with a tactile feedback linear motor. This will enable the user to feel subtle vibrations from the device. The vibrations will depend on various apps and specific areas on the touch screen. The latest feature costs up to three times more than the normal $0.60 vibration motor found in the previous iPhone 5s. Apple had already patented this technology back in 2009 so it’s about time it made an appearance.
MacRumors via Feld & Volk latest pictures alleging to be the rear case of the iPhone 6. Feld & Volk are a Moscow based company specializing in the sale of modified luxury versions of the iPhone. According to this company, it has been working with the same factories that make spare parts for Apple products for more than six years. Hence, enabling it to get a head start on modifying the device for its customers. Feld & Volk also go on to say that it has been the infamous sapphire glass we’ve been hearing about in it’s production of the luxury variants. The company further states that the suppliers Apple are using are the same supplier it has been using.
The video and photos attached show complex internals of the device. The rear casing however is incomplete with holes for the camera, mic and so on not punched in yet. Feld & Volk also explain that some of the screw holes are only part of the manufacturing process and will be removed later on.
As seen on previous leaks, the Apple logo is cut out of the shell which is unlike on current iPhone models. Some have speculated that Apple may looking to incorporate a lighted logo. But it is highly Apple is looking to embedded the logo as it had done on the iPads.
Feld & Volk speculates that the Apple logo could house a near field communications (NFC) antenna. The company also notes that the antenna breaks appear to be made of a “non-conductive polymer” to insulate the different antennas from each other.
The Apple iPhone 6 is expected to launch in September later in the year. We’re expecting two variants according to rumours and leaks – the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch variant. From what we’ve seen, the device will be available in the gold version just as seen with the iPhone 5s.
