It looks like Apple's iPhone is going gold again. A new leak by French website Nowhere [2] has published renderings of silver, black, and — most importantly — gold iPhone 6 shells, while YouTube user iCrackURiDevice [3] unboxed what seems like hardware shipped straight from an Asian manufacturer.

In the video, we get a first look at the alleged iPhone 6 rear backing. As expected, it's bigger than the current iPhone model, thinner, and has rounded corners and a redesigned back antenna. But what we didn't anticipate was how much the iPhone 6 shell would look like the HTC One M8 [5].

It's also much more gold — too gold, almost — which is a bit suspicious. Apple design god Jony Ive [7], the master of minimalism, would never let that fly . . . would he? Here's everything we know about the iPhone 6 [8] so far. Do you think you'd go for a bigger, blonder iPhone?
