The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission all but confirmed the existence of Apple Corp’s as-yet-unannounced iPhone 6 when it publicly announced approval of distribution applications for two new models of the trend-setting smartphone. 

NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tantasith announced this week that the agency has approved Apple's application to distribute two models - identified only by number - and then, on Aug 12, tweeted the news.

The ASTV Manager website said Wednesday Apple filed an import application Aug 5 and received equipment certification and written approval three days later for models A1586 and A1524. The Twitterverse and Apple rumour blogs immediately seized on the news, declaring  - without actual proof - that the numbers were for two iPhone 6 models that Apple has never even hinted existed.
