Found on their seemingly ordinary Lightning Dock product page, the last photo in the gallery showed an iPhone with a plastic back that is cause for speculation.
At the moment the picture is no longer available on Apple’s site but already it has spread on the internet. The clear difference between the photo that can be found now on the site, which is clearly showing an iPhone 5C, and the initial photo, which has piqued everyone’s interest, is that in the original picture the displayed phone clearly revealed a Touch ID sensor for fingerprint authentication.
Since it’s known that the iPhone 5C doesn’t have one, and that the picture appears right on Apple’s website, not on some dubious or obscure site, it’s safe to assume it depicted the successor of the lower priced range of iPhones, the C variant.
When it launches, the iPhone 6C will surely not be the budget phone that some might hope, as it happened with the iPhone 5C, but it will bring some needed variety in Apple’s line of current generation phone products, with various colors to chose from and a somewhat lower price which unfortunately will mean slightly lesser specs as well, when compared to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
This news seems to give even more credibility to the leaked photos published in March 2015 by FutureSupplier, a Chinese wholesaler of cell phone components and spare parts, that depict a pink plastic back panel, with the Apple logo and the iPhone brand visible on it, which is clearly different from the iPhone 5C’s case.
The main changes are that the camera LED flash has an oval opening rather than a round one, just like the one on iPhone 5C, and the speaker grille has a different design with more holes to allow the propagation of sound. The size of the case points to a 4 inch chassis design and screen diagonal.
Even though the phone has not yet been released or even announced by Apple, some argue already that Apple would be better off releasing a high end iPhone 6S in a 4 inch package rather than a phone with lesser capabilities which in the end is by no means priced for the masses.
