Apple iPhone 6 rumour round-up

The iPhone 5 hasn’t been out for a month, but we’re already looking ahead to the next Apple smartphone – the iPhone 6.

It says something about the fickle nature of the tech world that no sooner is a product released than the rumour mill starts spouting speculation about the follow-up.

We’ve already had rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the iPad 4, so it was only a matter of time before the next iPhone got the rumour mill treatment.

At this stage it goes without saying that any rumour should be taken with a very large pinch of salt, but the gossip is exciting nonetheless. So what are the latest iPhone 6 rumours?

Fingerprint scanner in iPhone 6?

This rumour has been floating around for some time, except it was the iPhone 5 that people were speculating over.

The rumours started when Apple bought AuthenTec, a fingerprint security company, but no such technology features on the latest iPhone.

So, naturally, the rumours have passed over to the iPhone 6 with the help of some leaked patents. According to the patents, the iPhone 6’s screen will be able to scan your fingerprint to allow you to unlock the device.

It’s certainly an exciting prospect, but the technology is still in its relative infancy so a 2013 roll-out seems unlikely. Then again, it is Apple we’re talking about here.

Hidden components on iPhone 6?

Another exciting rumour that’s been doing the rounds recently claims the iPhone 6’s body will be a continuous design that hides components like the camera lens and light sensor.

This will be achieved with the use of polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC), a futuristic surface that has the ability to change its opacity.

Things like the camera and flash to be hidden behind a PDLC window, and only revealed when the app is activated.

Once again, this is a very exciting rumour but we fear that the technology simply isn’t ready yet. Having said that, it’s right up Apple’s street, so the tech giant could pull out all the stops to get it ready for the next iPhone.
