iPhone 6 listing appears courtesy of Vodafone UK

A listing for the iPhone 6 has appeared on the Vodafone UK till system, suggesting Apple may skip the iPhone 5S altogether.

The 4G iPhone 6 listing was spotted at a Vodafone UK store within the till’s store inventory list, meaning the store is prepared to receive stock of Apple’s next smartphone.

Such a listing could mean Apple is working on a significant hardware and software jump from the current iPhone 5 for its next smartphone that is worthy of the iPhone 6 name.

Perhaps preparing to sidestep the usual “S” handset update release cycle, Apple could launch the iPhone 6 at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month on June 10 – 14.

So far, we know very little about the changes that Apple may make in the next iPhone, as previous rumours suggests the iPhone 5S would be the next handset and offer only incremental changes on the iPhone 5.

iOS 7 Rumours

Sir Jonny Ive is said to be completely overhauling the current iOS 6 mobile operating system, including introducing dramatic changes to iOS features like the email and calendar.

Moving away from realistic images like the bookshelf effect in the Newsstand, iOS 7 could be the first time Apple’s mobile software programs like the calendar have been revamped since the original iPhone was launched in 2007.

Strongly thought to make an appearance at WWDC, Apple’s Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phillip Schiller said “we can’t wait to get the new version of iOS and OS X into [developers’] hands at WWDC.”

If the Vodafone UK listing is accurate, Apple could use surprise us all by using the iPhone 6 to demo iOS 7 in all its redesigned glory.

WWDC could also see the iPad mini 2 with Retina Display or cheaper iPhone 5C handset make an appearance too, if recent rumours are to be believed.
