Apple is hiding an embarrassing iPhone 6 camera bulge

“Apple has an unpleasant bulge it’s hiding. The latest iPhone 6 has slimmed down to just 6.9mm of metal in what Apple describes as a “streamlined profile,” but it has picked up one element that isn’t particularly streamlined: an ugly camera bulge at the rear.

This suggests that the case is thinner than the height of the camera. So If I put the phone in this case flat on a table, it won’t really be flat, but raised a tiny bit by the camera.

In Tim Cook’s interview with Charlie Rose, however, Cook said that you […]
