The few people left that are holding onto their iPhone 5s or other four-inch iOS device might see another iPhone that can fit their hands soon. We’ve talked about the growth from zero that the idea of an iPhone 6c had gone from vision to concretion.

And you thought that taco emoji was soooo worth it, right?

We’ve heard for the last couple of weeks that aside from the significant re-design of the iPhone this year, Apple is also working on retaining the same design of its two iPad models, but including new benefits like what we saw with Touch ID on the iPhone 5s last year. Analysts have flooded the internet with predictions about it, but today we finally see something that actually confirms it.
Taiwan reseller Apple Club has just leaked a couple of photos showing us the iPhone 6, and also the next-generation iPad Air and iPad mini (hopefully with Retina Display) all sporting [...]
