Leaks for the upcoming iPhone 6 has been more like a raging torrent than a tricking stream as something new crops up daily. We know just about everything there is to know about Apple's iPhone 6, from its (admittedly) rumoured specs to its design. The guys and gals over at 9to5Mac have turned up another good look at the design language being employed on the new iPhone with a detailed look at the display cover.Sure, we have seen plenty of images of the iPhone 6 over the last few weeks, but this is the first to give us a look at the display cover. This component is in other words the bezels that surround the screen and the image takers were even kind enough to place the new iPhone 6 display plate alongside the one from the iPhone 5s. The result clearly shows that the new iPhone is larger with Apple finally opting to increase screen real estate in the face of competition from large Android devices. As the report points out, the fact that these components are showing up confirms the general consensus that the iPhone 6 is in the process of going through mass production. As well as showing the size difference between the iPhone 5 range and the iPhone 6, the image shows the new rounded design language Apple is employing for its latest flagship device. The corners are noticeably more curved than the squared off iPhone 5 design, while Apple has kept the landscape bezels pleasantly non-existent. Arguably the most pleasing thing about the new iPhone design is that Apple has managed to please the consumer base by bumping screen size, but has not abandoned its philosophy in the process. Cupertino has not gone crazy and taken the screen size to 5-inch plus limits like the Android flagships sport, instead the company kept the size at 4.7-inches and created a design that is distinctly iPhone despite its more curvaceous lines. Of course, an iPhone 6 phablet is also widely reported to be landing later this year with a 5.5-inch screen, so Apple is catering to those who want an even bigger screen too. Although, with the flagship the company has appeased the masses while managing to hold on to the subtlety of not being overblown. source: 9to5Mac
