The case is building towards Apple announcing at least one new phone at their press event on September 10th. While it is a near certainty that one of those products will be heavily rumoured and leak riddled iPhone 5C, the true successor to the iPhone 5 is still somewhat shrouded in mystery. Is it the iPhone 6? Is it the iPhone 5S? Nobody is 100% sure. What we do THINK we know is that it MIGHT come with something new to mobile phones and is sure to really change how we secure our phones.
Leaked photos showing a new design for the home button, and the ever-present rumour of a fingerprint sensor seem to indicate that the new iPhone will include a fingerprint scanner as its key feature. The leaked photos show that there is definitely something new under the hood of the new iPhone and while hardware comes and goes, the iPhone doesn't change much physically as the versions come and go. It's certainly worth noticing as Apple's press event approaches next month.
Additionally, another new rumour has popped up recently, and it's got a golden ring to it. According to, get this, more leaked photos, the new iPhone 5S/6, may ship in two colours. The one you are used to and has become a staple of Apple products, and a new gold backed device. It certainly is an interesting design choice if true but I wouldn't put too much stock in it.
Regardless of what comes next month, the world will certainly be watching as the world's most important electronics company gets set to unveil its newest phones. The world of mobile phones has changed quite a bit since the iPhone 5 launched last year. It will be interesting to see what comes next and how the world reacts to one of the world's biggest trend setters unleashing their next big thing.
