Leaked CAD drawing renders of Apple’s upcoming iPhone, mostly referred to as an iPhone 6s, confirm that next generation iPhone is going to be slightly thicker than the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The leaked images comes from the reliable @OnLeaks and are alleged CAD design drawings of iPhone that Apple sends out to its accessory making partners letting them manufacture cases, covers, docks, and other accessories before the launch of new iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
The information that comes attached with these drawings reveal that the iPhone 6s is going to be 7.1mm thick, which will make it 0.2mm thicker than the current iPhone 6 model. This is in line with a recently leaked iPhone 6s prototype from a Chinese site that claims the same thickness. The upcoming device is also said to be encased in a stronger body to address the so-called bentgate scandal.
The iPhone 6S Plus, which was the model most often cited in the so-called ‘bendgate’ scandal, has also been body-building. It’s gone from 7.1mm thick to 7.3mm, we were told.
One notable difference in these iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus CAD designs is that the protruding camera has disappeared on the iPhone 6, while appears on only the iPhone 6s Plus. This suggests that Apple has been able to adjust the camera at the level of the body of the device because of increase in thickness and camera improvements. However, the bigger iPhone 6s Plus still have the protruding camera due to its image optical image stabilization.
There are no means to prove these CAD drawings legit, but @OnLeaks has proven to be one of the most reliable leaks’ sources in the past, and numerous other reports are also claiming that Apple’s upcoming iPhone model is going to be slightly thicker.
