    I disagree. Given the right colour they seem quite deliberate and Apple-like. They serve the real purpose of call quality and wifi reception window. If the colour of them is right they could look cool.

    Its metal. The green is a protective layer. 

    Probably still fake though cause those antenna separations are horrible.

    I really like the true flash of the 5s it looks really different in this picture, i don't see why they wouldn't keep it

    Imagination much?

    I think the same as the previous mock-ups: hideous antenna cuts.
    I'll skip this iPhone generation if this happens to be the real design.
    I like the rounded edges, though

    If the power button is on the side I'm not buying it

    the logo will be lit up like a christmas tree, then watch as the masses flock to the apple stores literally, like moth's to the flame. and all they will get is some idiotic "new feature" ( as if ).

    ohhhh look at my new shiny polished "CryPhone", it even comes with a lit up logo of a half bitten apple i am soooooooooooooooooooooooooo cooooooooooooollllllllll oh wait is that the "new"
    CryPhone 7 ? with OMG OMG it has a shiny lit up beze, now i am SUPERRR COOOLLL.

    Huh? It's obviously cut out, you can see the shadow.

    No; the image comparison shows it’s way too big, yeah?

    I absolutely hate the idea, too–I’m a gall darn purist, after all. But they don’t think people will be able to get to it if it’s up there, which isn’t true.

    This is the new iphone. No doubt about it. It will look amazing in person. With Apple it is all about the details, and the detailing will be brilliant. All the wailing about the thickness if the antenna bands is silly. Wait until it is in your hand.

    I'm really curious about the Apple logo cutout. I wonder if there will be some sort of lighted sensor there for health features? I'm probably in the minority, but a lighted Apple logo on the back would be cool. I'm sure Apple can figure out a way to use the screen light as the light source for a lighted Apple logo.

    ive never even spent one second looking at it let alone worrying about it. who cares if the rear logo has fingerprints on it!? talk about first world problems....

    i dont think so -- you dont get this many different models and images that look just the same. just like, oh, every previous set of leaked photos for each prev generation that also turned out to be real.

    why do you think the didnt? it's not very difficult to imagine both diodes in a single round encloser.

    guess you didnt see this case that uses "free" electromagnetic energy already coming out of the phone:

    ...so it doesnt waste any power. 

     

    doesnt mean they will, but thats not why they wouldnt.

    why on earth not? of all the technical achievements apple has made, this is the one thing you cant conceive of them doing?

    Based on the shadow inside the apple this is definitely a cutout.

    Enlarge the logo and turn it sideways- I swear there's a child or a ghost in there. Looks like Casper.

    To me it just doesn't seem to be the same proportions as the 5s maybe its cause I'm using a lifeproof case. But the size of the camera lens and the flash seems odd to me.
