Alongside an iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus phablet, the tech company is reportedly going to unveil an affordable iPhone 6C as part of the 2015 refresh cycle.

According to Digitimes, the iPhone 6C will use a polycarbonate construction -- like the colorful iPhone 5C -- and will run a less potent processor. However the biggest difference is that it will boast a smaller, 4-inch display rather than the 4.7-inch screen on the current iPhone 6.

Digitimes also claims that despite lower specifications, the new handset, expected to be unveiled in September, will have a fingerprint scanner and will support the Apple Pay digital payments platform.

An earlier report suggests that Apple has secured a new patent which will give future iPhones the ability to shoot even better images and deliver high-quality colours.

According to Apple Insider, the company has been a granted a patent for a ‘digital camera with light splitter’ which will allow Apple to embed a three-sensor prism-based camera module within the chassis of a thin wireless device, like the iPhone.

This technology implemented in phones would boost its camera quality and offer a much better result in terms of colour, especially in low-light conditions.
