While the mid-range iPhone 5c has largely failed to gain traction in the market over the past year, that hasn’t stopped Dutch graphic designer Joseph Farahi from creating a beautiful mockup of what the next-generation iPhone 6c could look like. The keyword: could. Don’t expect Apple to copy this.
According to iClarified, the iPhone 6c could feature a 4.7-inch Retina display, 8-megapixels rear-facing camera, true tone flash and more. It is unclear when Apple would release such a device, but past indications suggest that the Cupertino-based company could release it in June or September. It’s about time.

Yet another report out of Taiwan is stating that Apple will release two larger iPhone models this year. One will be 4.7″, while the other will be 5.6″, according to the rumor. This falls in line with other rumors that have circulated since the end of last year, and so it therefore seems likely.
However, the report also states something that doesn’t seem at all possible. (more…)

According to a report from The Korea Herald this morning surrounding both Apple’s upcoming iPhone and the rumored Samsung Galaxy S5, the iPhone 6 will sport a new bezel-free display when it launches later this year. While most of the report focused on the Samsung side of things, it was mentioned that the iPhone 6 will be similar to the future Galaxy phone in this way, and that the next iPhone will also of course be shipping with Touch ID.

A video concept of the so-called “iPhone 6″ has been posted to YouTube by user ConceptsiPhone, and the mockup device looks absolutely gorgeous. With a new-and-improved Lightning port, stereo sound and a mini auxiliary port, the next-generation smartphone somehow provides an ultra-thin design and 10-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Additionally, the device has edge-to-edge glass with no bezels on the left or right. The concept most closely resembles what an iPhone and HTC One hybrid smartphone would look like unified, and the traditional color lineup of space grey, silver and gold is still offered. And, of course, it is running iOS 7.
