Weibo has posted some photos that supposedly show an iPhone 6 testing at Foxconn, but the credibility of the images cannot be confirmed. The iPhone 6 shown in the images has a protruding camera, rounded edges and looks much thinner than the current iPhone 5s.
Japan has leaked a sketch that show 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6c models. In the sketch we see a very similar design to that of the iPhone 5c, but it is rumored that Apple may be getting rid of the plastic/polycarbonate iPhone and go for an all metal iPhone lineup this time.

The Wall Street Journal reports Apple is in talks with Comcast for a streaming TV service that’ll be available in future versions of the Apple TV.
Apple plans to offer live and on-demand streams of TV channels over the internet in the future, and this partnership would give the company access to Comcast’s network of channels. Apple would deliver the streams over special cables on Comcast’s network, such that it bypasses “congestion on the Web.” Apple wants to ensure that the quality of the streaming video is as good as traditional TV networks, so customers don’t have to wait for the video to buffer. Comcast and Apple’s discussions are in early stages and aren’t close to an agreement. Comcast would be required to significantly invest and improve its network, so that the service quality is up to Apple’s standards.
