Japan has leaked a sketch that show 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch iPhone 6c models. In the sketch we see a very similar design to that of the iPhone 5c, but it is rumored that Apple may be getting rid of the plastic/polycarbonate iPhone and go for an all metal iPhone lineup this time.
One of our sources has provided us with images of what are claimed to be new next-generation iOS device parts being carried by a supplier. Supplier claiming next-generation iPod touch front panel would be taller than the current model and that the opening in the front panel measures 4.1 inches diagonally.
Let the speculation begin! It may not be a sign of an iPhone refresh, but we’ve received multiple tips today about an imminent price drop for Apple’s flagship smartphone. According to a pair of trusty tipsters, Radio Shack is prepping to cut the cost of AT&T’s 16GB iPhone 4 to $169.99, with a two-year contract, from $199.99. The 32GB version will likewise take a $30 plunge at the Shack, ringing in at $269.99, and the price of the 8GB 3GS will drop to $19.99. Phone Arena is likewise reporting on Target slicing up the old Apple price tag, but lists varying numbers based on carrier. If all this talk turns out to be true, those prices should be ripe for the picking starting tomorrow.
AppleCare Protection Plan may cover certain types of damage, but it sure didn’t stop up today’s alleged leak — if you pick an unlocked iPhone at the online Apple Store for Canada, Australia or the UK today and click the “Learn more” button on the AppleCare option, you’ll be treated to this “iWork for iPhone” containing screen. Coupled with the “Open in Keynote” prompt we saw a few weeks back, we may picking up the crumbs of a real app here, even if productivity isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when fondling that Retina Display.

Is this the iPhone 4G (or iPhone HD)? There’s no way to tell for sure, but these photos which made their way into our hands certainly do a convincing job of making us think that’s very much the case. Apparently the phone was found on the floor of a San Jose bar inside of an iPhone 3G case. Right now we don’t have a ton of info on the device in question, but we can tell you that it apparently has a front facing camera (!), 80GB of storage (weird, right?), and isn’t booting at this point (though it was previously, and running an OS that was decidedly new). It’s not clear if this is definitely a production model, or just a prototype that found its way into the world, but it’s certainly a compelling design, no matter how you look at it.
