During the last few months, there have been plenty of rumours about the next instalment of the Apple iPhone series. Of course, this is hardly a surprise as it is one of the biggest brands in the smartphone market, with millions of people using best selling devices like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S on a daily basis.

Current speculation suggests that the next instalment of Apple's iconic smartphones series will be iPhone 5S. Several sources have suggested that this will be an upgraded version of the current model, while others believe it will be a new, more affordable device with a plastic casing and downgraded features allowing Apple to compete in the budget smartphone market.

The device rumoured as the iPhone 6 has also been a hot topic recently. It has been suggested that this will be Apple's first attempt in the phablet market, taking on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which remains a market leader in the niche. The phone is rumoured to sport a 4.8 inch display which is considerably larger than the 4 inch screen of the iPhone 5.

While it is all but official that the iPhone 5S will be released this summer, uSwitch has recently reported that the iPhone 6 is unlikely to hit the market until 2014, Citi Research analysts Glen Yeung has claimed.

A while ago, Apple commented on its position regarding phablet devices and said that it has no plans to release such a phone in the near future, stating that it would rather concentrate on ensuring the quality of its retina display technology can be maintained on larger screens.

More news regarding upcoming iPhone models is likely to be revealed in the coming weeks, so we will keep you posted with the latest updates on upcoming Apple phones.
