Video Shows Supposedly Assembled iPhone 6 Stuck in Recovery Mode
A purported iPhone 6 with what looks to be a 4.7″ display has been assembled from leaked parts, and the device even turns itself on, but is seemingly stuck on the familiar “Connect to iTunes” recovery mode screen. Two separate videos of the iPhone are embedded below for viewing (and this time it’s not a video of a hot dog).
The assembled device looks quite nice and is obviously much more refined than some of the earlier part leaks that have shown up across the web. This is very likely what we’ll see debuted by Apple in a few short weeks, making the video a significant spoiler. Of course, it’s always possible these part leaks and the device itself is not actually an iPhone, or is some elaborate hoax or fraud, though all existing rumors and indications would strongly suggest otherwise.
The first video, posted to YouTube, shows the allegedly assembled black iPhone being rotated around in a users hands, then being turned on to display the iTunes connection request. The device is then placed side by side with an iPhone 5s, offering some perspective to its relative size and appearance.
A second video showing off the iPhone 6 was posted to their Instagram page, embedded below:
The videos were provided to MacRumors from luxury iPhone customization company Feld & Volk.
Some other interesting tidbits have surfaced from Feld & Volk through part leaks as well, including the appearance of what looks like an NFC chip, which could be used for a mobile payments platform, 16GB of storage, and what looks like 1GB of RAM with an A8 CPU.
Finally, MacRumors has also shared some additional images of a rear shell of what looks like a silver iPhone:
Apple is widely expected to launch the iPhone 6 on September 9, a date the company has scheduled a press event for.
The ways things are going one will be able to purchase an iPhone 7 on the black market weeks before it is released. Maybe it is time to bring the manufacturing home, don’t you think?
Reqards to iPhone in Recovery Mode???
Does this device use the same IOS code as installed in an iPad???
About two(2) months ago, I experienced the same problem with my iPad. I spent beaucoup hours on Apple Tech Support trying to fix the problem. I made an appointment with my local Apple Genius people and I was assigned a specific Technician who fixed the problem just like that. He wouldn’t share the solution with me nor with anyone in Apple’s Tech Support. I sent a blistering E-Mail to Apple Tech Support with the name of the Technician and Apple Store. I told Apple that they have ‘an infinite loop’ problem in their code but why listen to an old hag. I spend beaucoup hours writing/debugging code so I know from whence I come.

That rear camera looks like its going to be badly scratched in a matter of minutes!
Looking forward to buying one. Hope the 5.5 is not delayed. I don’t want two phones
Stop with the rumors. None of this serves any purpose other than to whip-up Apple fans into a frenzy – and drive up the stock price. Just stop the rumors. Thanks.
Interesting that only the 4.7″ iPhone is leaking, not much about the 5.5″ is… maybe it’s delayed. That would be a disappointment wouldn’t it?
And 16GB? Come on Apple, give that size up, nothing fits on it!
I remember reading somewhere that there is a good chance that the 5.5″ model will be delayed.
