Did Apple just reveal the iPhone 6C?

Did Apple just reveal the iPhone 6C?

"So I can upload all the images in the folder marked 'Lightning Dock'?"

"Yep, all of them."

"You're sure... even the one with the iPhone 6C?"

"Yeah, should be okay. Isn't it a 5C?"

"Well, if you say so..."

A conversation along the lines of the above appears to have taken place this week in the inner workings of Apple's official online store, followed by profuse cursing.  Somehow, a yet-to-be-revealed phone model might have been added to an array of images demonstrating a new Lightning Dock.

While most (including us) will have thought that one final image in the line up showed the familiar iPhone 5C nestled in the dock, the eagle-eyed tech gossip hunters over at MacRumors spotted that the model was missing the usual square marker on its home button - indicating that it was in fact sporting a Touch ID sensor. 

The iPhone 6C?

The image has since been taken down and replaced with a regular 5C, hinting that the former image had in fact been an accidental leak of an updated, cheaper iPhone model that was rumoured last year.

Word on an updated, 4-inch "iPhone 6C" model have been doing the rounds ever since Apple revealed the 6 and 6 Plus in 2014. It should be noted that the image is a mocked-up rendering rather than an actual product shot, so it's more likely to be a PhotoShop whoopsie than an early product reveal. But still - it's fun to speculate. Right?
