While the next product in Apple's iPhone line has not been named, speculations over the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 continue their tour over the media.

Followers would remember that the Cupertino giant unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus back in September, and if we are to follow the same launching pattern, we could be four months away from seeing a new iPhone model.

However, it must be noted that Apple will be holding this year's WWDC next month. Macworld is convinced that while the event may not launch any new iPhone, earlier models like the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 have all started in the same conference.

Macworld says a new iPhone in the WWDC is "an extremely faint possibility."

Without Apple's word, it's uncertain whether the iPhone 6s is next in line. Alternatively, the company could jump straight to the iPhone 7, as predicted by tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst.

As previously reported, the new iPhone is believed to pack an 8 MP camera, the same resolution found in its predecessors. However, a new rumor cited by the Ecumenical News claims that the next-generation iPhone will bring a 12 MP main snapper instead.

According to MacRumors, this information comes from Kevin King, IHS Technology Research Director for China, who spilled the insight via Weibo. His assumption supports Kuo's earlier claim, which speaks of the same upgrade.

For those who may not know, it's long rumored that the next iPhone is equipped with DSLR-like technology, a speculation tipped by John Gruber of Daring Fireball.

Design-wise, creatives have also imagined how the next iPhone will look like. Network World took note of SET Solution's vision, which coins the then-anticipated iPhone Air.

The render measures 122.7 mm high, 56.9 mm wide and 4.3 mm thick. Its screen is pegged at 4 inches, housing full HD resolution.

ValueWalk listed some of the iPhone 7's possible specs, which include the new A9 chip, 2 GB of RAM, iOS 9 support and Force Touch. The new processor is said to be 15% smaller, 20% more powerful and 35% more power-efficient than its A8 predecessor.

Allegedly built on Series 7000 aluminum alloy, the iPhone 7 is also expected to pack a bezel-free 4.7- / 5.5-inch sapphire screen alternative, 64 GB starting storage, wireless charging support and waterproofing abilities. It is believed to sell for at least $649.

In other news, TechnoBuffalo cited a leaked Apple document, which appears to make several iPhones and Macs "obsolete" or "vintage" by June 9, 2015. These devices, covered in Asia-Pacific, Canada, Europe, Japan, Latin America, and the U.S., include (via 9to5Mac):
