As we march through the last week day of August, and inexorably move closer to September 9, the main focus seems to be on the iPhone 6′s purported logic board. A new image has confirmed what many may have not wanted to believe: that the iPhone 6 will feature 16GB of built-in storage.
T-Mobile has been focusing on being the “Un-carrier” for quite some time now, with large events announcing new initiatives that propel the network forward, and offer up new ideas (especially for major wireless carriers). And now the Magenta Network has just announced their 7th Un-carrier initiative.
The reports regarding near field communications (NFC) functionality in the iPhone 6 have certainly picked up steam, and with each new report, it looks even more likely. On August 28, for instance, WIRED reported that NFC will be a “benchmark” feature in the iPhone 6 for their new mobile payments initiative. Now, a new image of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6′s logic board seemingly confirms those previous reports.
A few days ago, the well-sourced John Paczkowski of Re/code reported that Apple will be unveiling its first wearable device next month at its September 9th media event that it recently invited the press to attend. The wearable would likely be introduced alongside new iPhones and a myriad of other potential announcements. Following up on that report, Re/code now clarifies that while the wearable will be previewed in September, it will not be released until next year.
Earlier this summer, iPhone users were treated to one of the biggest App Store fads in recent months in Yo. The app allowed you to communicate with others by sending a simple Yo notification — that was it. Following in the footsteps of Yo was Emoj.li, announced in late June as an emoji-only messenger. The app, as you probably guessed, is an instant messaging platform for sending messages with only emoji characters. After a two month wait, the app has now launched on the App Store.
If we can divert a minute of your attention away from the news that Apple has sent out invites for its September 9th event and is building an expansion on the Flint Center to maximize the number of attendees, an interesting new jailbreak tweak called WallpaperPlus has been released as a wallpaper customization tool for iPhone and iPad.

While there have been numerous leaks depicting what could be the rear shell for the upcoming iPhone 6, a pair of leaked photos this morning provide one of the more close up looks at the component. Unlike in previous leaks, the rear shell has a colored antenna band that matches the overall silver and grey design of the smartphone.
