Amidst the sale of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, iPhone 6 rumours started to make the rounds. This new iPhone 6 concept image was picked up from DeviantArt by user iNasko and it resembles the original iPad. The concept also features a 5-inch screen display that could be possible.
"For a long time I have been thinking how the next iPhone could be different from the 5, so people won't be complaining, and then I figured that the iPad (2010) offered a great design, which would also fit a phone. So, taking heavy inspiration from the first iPad, this is a concept for an iPhone with a bigger 5" screen," posted by the creator of the iPhone 6 concept.
However, the concept is missing the new fingerprint reader embedded in the home button that arrived in the new iPhone 5S. It is predicted that the iPhone 6 will run with the new and controversial iOS 7.
Rumour has it that the iPhone 6 will be released in the first quarter of next year although Apple has recently released its slew of smartphones. Many speculated that the tech giant will release a new iPhone around March 2014, taking the original launch slot of the new iPads. However, Apple has not commented on the rumours.
On September 10, Apple announced two new iPhones - the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. iPhone 5S is the full-fledged iPhone and the real successor of iPhone 5. Like the previous iPhone, it features 4-inch Retina display, aluminum housing and 8MP rear camera. However, it added the new 64-bit A7 processor and M7 chip GPU and a biometrics reader on the home button. iPhone 5S took the $199 slot with two-year contract.
The mid-range iPhone 5C, on the other hand, also retains some of the features of iPhone 5 but comes with a plastic casing. The device is available in different colours like blue, green, yellow, white and red variants. iPhone 5C costs $99 with 24-month lock-in period.
Both devices come with the latest iOS 7. iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C went on sale yesterday on Apple Stores worldwide.
