Last week, we had seen a video that purportedly showed a working iPhone 6 assembled from components booting to the Connect to iTunes screen. Today’s leak, emerging from Chinese social network Weibo, trumps that by a huge margin with photos and videos of a working iPhone 6 running iOS 8 beta.

A user who goes by zzray on Weibo posted photos and videos of the iPhone 6, showing the larger display, but more importantly running iOS 8 beta build 12A365.

The short video shows the user waking up the iPhone 6, unlocking it with Touch ID, and going to the home screen with the familiar grid of iOS app icons. We’ve embedded the video below.

The homescreen shows a new Passbook icon with an additional slot right at the top for credit cards, hinting at the rumored NFC mobile payments feature in the device. The photos also suggest that the extra screen real estate on the iPhone 6 will be used for an extra row of home screen icons.

Here are a few more photos from the same user showing the Setting screen and the App Store:

While there are a lot iPhone 6 ripoffs running Android available in China, the polish of the OS strongly suggests that the device is indeed genuine. Let us know what you think about the leak in the comments below.
