In a new photo acquired by cnBeta via Macotakara , the photo puts on display what is supposedly a the packaging of the iPhone 6S plus. The image has within it a standard white iPhone box similar to packaging material on previous iterations of the device. The box is opened, the lid is lifted and we see a golden “iPhone 6S plus” a golden lettered Apple logo on the bottom and “iPhone 6s Plus” written on the side of casing of the device. The “S” is set within a small four sided shape as is standard procedure on iPhone “S” packaging. The box also puts on display what appears to be a new wallpaper that shows black and gold fish.
In addition, cnBeta says in its report that the iPhone 6s’ battery capacity will be reduced to 1715 mAh from the iPhone 6’s 1800 mAh, while on the other end the iPhone 6s Plus will be down to 2750 mAh from the iPhone 6 Plus’ 2910 mAh. Macotakara also says that rumours flying about have told them that battery capacity for newer models will also be lower, which coincides with news heard earlier this year that battery capacity would be smaller with respect to years past. If this turns out to be true then this is probably an indication of Apple having increased battery efficiency to make up for the reduction in battery capacity.
On the other hand, the report is still very murky and it is unclear if it is authentic packaging and if the source can be trusted. The material used in the box appears to be thinner than what we a re used to seeing and the wallpaper on display is unfamiliar to even the testers of the iOS betas released earlier this year.
The buzz is that Apple is expected to announce its new flagship phones, the iPhone 6S and 6S plus in its annual event on September 9 which is speculated to be happening in the Bill Graham Centre in San Francisco. The Cupertino-based tech company is also expected to finally unveil its new Apple TV with a new touch-based remote and full Application Store.
