Purported Home button parts for Apple’s 4.7- and 5.5-inch ‘iPhone 6’ units appear with different designs

“A pair of parts claimed to be for both Apple’s anticipated 4.7- and 5.5-inch ‘iPhone 6’ models were posted online Friday, showing very different designs not only from each other, but from the current iPhone 5s,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
