Matched to 4.7-inch model
Images of what's claimed to be a backlighting panel for the iPhone 6 have appeared on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, reports say. The authenticity of the part is unsure, but it does resemble the backlight for the iPhone 5s. One difference is a relocated flex connector with modified pins, but it's common for Apple to change connectors to fit new circuit designs.
The panel is said to be for a 4.7-inch iPhone, and not Apple's rumored but still largely unseen 5.5-inch device. Multiple reports have claimed that the latter is delayed though, and might not ship until November or even 2015. The 4.7-inch phone is expected to be launched in September or October.
If they follow historical trends, parts leaks are likely to increase as the iPhone 6 goes into full-scale production. In many cases so far, leaks have revolved around molds and schematics instead of final components.
