Here are the iPhone 5S and 5C. What's next? Apple

Apple's iPhone 6 might be vaporware at this point, but that hasn't stopped one artist from taking a stab at what the device might look like, based on rumors.

Designer Martin Hajek developed a vision of what the iPhone 6, based on rumors of the handset coming with a 4.7-inch display and Touch ID button on its face. The renderings also follow rumored changes to the handset, including Apple's plan to move the power button from the top of the device to the right side. The volume buttons are also expected to be different, and reflect that change in Hajek's design.

In addition to developing images of the 4.7-inch model, Hajek's renderings also include the 5.5-inch phablet Apple is reportedly working on.

The designs are based on nothing more than speculation surrounding Apple's upcoming smartphones, so they might not reflect in any way what the iPhone-maker has planned. Still, over the last few years, Apple's once-impervious secrecy shield has proven penetrable, and at least some of the leaks that hit the Web months prior to a product's unveiling are accurate. That makes the renderings Hajek developed possibly on target.

For its part, Apple has kept all mobile plans close to its vest and has not shared what it has planned for its smartphone. Until the devices are unveiled, therefore, it might be worth checking out the renderings to see what Apple's next handset just might look like.
