Did Apple Erroneously Leak iPhone 6c With Touch ID On Its Web site?

A lot has been occurring in the Apple world these previous few days, and if you’ve been monitoring all those advancements, here’s one more to get; a supposed iPhone 6c with Touch ID image on Apple’s own web site.

With the iPhone 5c having been left in time, this new iPhone 6c image has been supposedly caught on Apple’s web page for its brand-new Lightning Dock for the iPhone as reported on Reddit. The image reveals a relatively similar iPhone 5c cladded in pink, sitting snuggly on Apple’s brand-new Lightning Dock, however this phone seems to be sporting a Touch ID house button, which was never a feature on the iPhone 5c.


Just to give it a quick background, the whole difficulty around a possible iPhone 6c arrival is constructed around a debate surrounding the possibility of a 4-inch iPhone hitting the market this year, together with the anticipated iPhone 6s. At the time of writing, the debate over Apple launching a 4-inch iPhone stays uniformly well balanced though trusted sources have recommended that a 4-inch iPhone might not be launching this year.

Nevertheless, some analysts have actually suggested that with Apple nabbing a big market with the bigger iPhone 6 designs beginning Q3 2014, it would aim to retain fans of the 4-inch smartphone too to enhance its market share.

As for the image in question, if you going to that dock’s blog post now, you will see no supposed iPhone 6c with Touch ID, but a regular iPhone 5c, as the image has because been removed after it went viral on the blogosphere. The optimist would think that somebody at Apple mistakenly published the image of a brand-new secret phone and afterwards quickly removed it, while the doubter might call it a publicity stunt.

However, a more reasonable explanation could be that some designer wrongly layered an iPhone 5s front image onto the body of an iPhone 5c dealing with some image editing software.


That stated, if Apple was to launch a new 4-inch iPhone this year, there’s a really high likelihood that the device will be sporting the now standardized Touch ID sensor. In the meantime, I would recommend fans of Cupertino’s 4-inch smartphone to not hold their breath.
