I see...  
Fortunately for them, they won't have any problem producing enough sapphire to make the 15 Wellographs they'll sell this year.
 This is how unibody iPhones (and MacBooks) are made, machined aluminum. And yes they machine tens of millions of them in mass production. Apple's an expert in aluminum milling, iPhone production lines use hundreds of custom CNC milling machines. That's why iPhone 6 clones are made of plastic. Here's the leaked iPhone 5 back shell for reference, which looked exactly like the final product: 
 The HTC One NFC inductor is apparently around the camera hole, so I guess what I was saying about the Apple logo being too small may not be totally right. But on the other hand, it seems that the HTC One NFC sensor/inductor is notoriously bad, probably because of this.
   Every leak we've seen point to the logo being made of metal which would block radio frequencies. And even if it was made of a radio-transparent material, traditional NFC inductors require a larger surface than the Apple logo on the iPhone 6 and can't be made smaller, due to the fundamental nature of wavelengths.    But Apple recently applied for a patent called "Shared Antenna Structures for Near-Field Communications and Non-Near-Field Communications Circuitry" which...
This is something that Apple should fix of course, I just don't think it's as bad as some people are trying to make it. A call will trigger the "calling" screen with a big red button to hang up. It's not like an app can call hundreds of numbers in the background without you noticing it.   Meanwhile, any app can send spam email (or do other nefarious stuff that can be done through the internet) behind your back without any visible sign that it's happening.
Sorry I have to say that but : duh!   I don't see any other reason that could explain the change.   Edit: Just to be clear, I'm not complaining about the article as it does bring some interesting new information. But obviously, a security issue was the reason behind the code signing change.
BTW I think something was lost in translation. As I understand, only the battery was claimed to the a 5.5" part. As noted in the article, the rest of the parts are obviously for the 4.7" model.
