The pictures Show Recessed Volume Buttons, Scratch-Resistant Apple Logo
Just a few weeks back we had the luxury of seeing some very high quality photos of the rear shell of the upcoming iPhone 6, thanks to the luxury modified iPhone vendor Feld & Volk who managed to share these photos along with a video on their Instagram page. When we saw the leaked pictures, the component had not yet reached its final stage of production so it wasn’t completely polished. But even at this stage, the part looked majestic and was quite pleasant to the overall body.
Now the part is completed and once again Feld & Volk has received the final 4.7-inch iPhone 6 rear shell which we can see in the pictures. These new photos reveal certain aspects of the device, particularly the part, which hadn’t shown up in previous leaks. We can also clearly see the new volume button cutouts which have been recessed a bit to allow for a slight lower profile right along the edges. Considering the bigger size of the phone and touch-screen related accidents, this is going to prevent the unwanted volume changing accidents. These nooks have also been spotted on a purported "perfect replica" and claimed actual rear shell for the next-generation iPad Air.
One of the most important aspects these photos have brought to us is the new Apple logo which has been carved into the phone this time. The embedded logo design is something that Apple hasn’t sought after since 2007. There are going to be no obvious changes to the logo, it will appear quite the same to the eyes, however a scratch-resistant metal would be used for it. This could possibly be the Liquidmetal alloy but nothing has been confirmed on this one as yet.
