After a brief burst of genuine leaks a few weeks ago, we seem to have entered 'let's just make stuff up' period of the Apple rumour cycle.

At least we now have a date for the probable introduction of iOS 8 -- 2nd June, or the start of WWDC.

But as for the iPhone 6 itself, due (probably) in September, things are still a little fuzzy.

The latest rumour states that the phone may have an 'interchangeable lens' designed to make it easier to capture specialised macro and wide-angle pictures, while keeping the normal phone lens in place during day-to-day situations.

The rumour comes via a patent application, which according to USPTO documents details how Apple can use a "bayonet" mechanism to allow for swappable camera lenses.

Take a look at the video to find out how it works. Meanwhile here's everything we know about the iPhone 6.
