Latest ‘IPhone 6’ Parts Photos Shows Round “True Tone” Flash Component

The last several months have seen a plethora of drawings, photos, and mockups for rear shell parts for the iPhone 6 that have indicated Apple was abandoning the pill-shaped “True Tone” dual-LED flash it used on the iPhone 5s.



Earlier today, we highlighted a new photo set from [Google Translate] showing a number of components said to be from the iPhone 6, but one part we neglected to feature shows Apple has indeed developed a new round version of the True Tone flash. The part shows both white and amber LEDs within a single round flash component. 

The round flash is integrated into the alleged iPhone 6 flex cable seen in the photo above. While the cable had been seen before, it had only been shown form the rear, so the flash itself was not visible.

Apple’s True Tone flash debuted in the iPhone 5s, replacing the white-only flash seen in previous iPhone models. The True Tone flash sports both white and amber LEDs, allowing it to improve white balance, and color temperature variations.

Apple is expected to debut its new flagship handset(s) on September 9th, with a launch expected soon after. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 may see an earlier release than the 5.5-inch model, as the larger device is said to be experiencing manufacturing issues.
