iPhone 6 â€śAirâ€ť concept based on leaked schematics shows thin design, edge-to-edge display, rounded edges
A report from earlier this year hinted that Apple was working an iPhone with an iPhone 5c and iPod nano-inspired design that would ditch the slate grey hues and bring some color to Apple’s premium iPhone line. Concept artist Martin Hajek and iCulture went beyond color and imagined an iPhone as an oversized iPod nano.
With the iPhone 6, many people expect Apple to completely redesign the look and feel of the device, breaking away from the boxy look that dominated the iPhone 5 and 5s. Realistically, we have no idea what Apple has planned for the handset, but concept designs help us envision what Apple possibly could do with the phone. The latest concept, released by TechRadar, takes a traditional approach, adding a few significant improvements on top of the iPhone’s already distinctive design.
The iPhone 5s is about mid-way in its product cycle, which means it is time to start thinking ahead to the iPhone 6. What is it going to look like? How is it going to be designed? The latest concept from designer Arthur Reis and videographer Ran Avni embraces Apple’s sapphire ambitions and pictures a 4.5-inch iPhone with a stunning curved glass display.

Apple is widely expected to launch iPhone 6 with a bigger screen this year to compete with Android based smartphones that typically come bigger screens.
The iPhone 5c was Appleâ€™s venture to make a cheaper, plastic iPhone that would help it gain more marketshare in the mid-range smartphone segment. It hasnâ€™t worked out well, as buyers are purchasing the more advanced iPhone 5s, but a new concept shows how Apple could take the iPhone â€ścâ€ť lineup further into the future.
