Yet another Apple iPhone 6 leak came in today, courtesy of a case maker who works with the major UK retailer Mobilefun. The interesting bit here is that the design of the smartphone stays quite close to that of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, rather going for the iPod touch look evidenced by previous leaks.
Now case makers get information about the size of the upcoming iPhone 6 and the position of its buttons and sensors so they can get their products ready in time, so there is a chance that this leak holds some water. However, the very different design certainly rises a few questions about its legitimacy.

One possible explanation is that Apple is actually going to use two different designs for the two iPhone 6 versions that the rumor mill often sees. Another theory is that what was allegedly an iPod-like iPhone, could simply turn out to be the next-gen iPod Touch, with the smartphone staying close to its current design.
There's also the option that case makers, who only have dimensions and sketches to rely on have to do a great amount of guessing about the actual look of the upcoming smartphone and that all we have seen so far are just shots in the dark.
Smart money is certainly on that last explanation, but we can't help but hope that there's more to those leaks. It's just that the curious geeks inside us refuse to settle for anything...
