Here are your Apple rumors and AAPL news items for today:
iPhone: Feld & Volk, a group that creates custom iPhones, may have built its own iPhone 6 from leaked parts, reports 9to5Mac. A video and several photos show off what appears to be a finished version of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 6. However, the group never claims that this is what it is. The device can be seen booting up and even asks the user if they want to connect to iTunes. The device doesn’t appear to be running on iOS 8 and it may not even be using iOS at all. It also appears that the possible iphone 6 isn’t using a full size screen as some images on it appear well above the Home button.
NFC: Apple’s iPhone 6 may come equipped with NFC technology, MacRumors notes. Apple blogger John Gruber claims that the iPhone 6 will have the ability to store card information and allow customers to pay at stores just by pulling out their iPhones. Gruber previously joked that Apple would be introducing the iWatch at the September 9 event long before other rumors of that surfaced. Two other reports have been made by online publications that claim the iPhone 6 will include NFC technology.
iWatch: A new rumor claims that Apple won’t be releasing the iWatch anytime soon, reports Re/code. It’s rumored that Apple will show the iWatch off at the September 9 event. However, Re/code author John Paczkowski claims that the device likely won’t be out until 2015. Paczkowski information comes from two sources that claim to be close to the matter. He claims that an early 2015 release isn’t a stretch once one considers that the original iPhone was released six months after its debut.
