So how's this for an unlikely iPhone 6 rumour: the phone is about to get curvier. And "thicker".

According to a new leaked report, the next Apple smartphone could swap the sleek, straight edges of the current model to something completely new, more natural and - in places - thicker.

As ever the source for the rumour is relatively obscure - and it's hard to imagine Apple releasing anything obviously rougher in appearance than the previous model.

That said it's been year's since the iPhone last went through a major outward design change, and with growth rapidly slowing in the smartphone space it might be time for something drastic.
