#iPhone 5se: Leaked pictures and schematics show what #Apple's next iPhone will look like

Schematic drawings and renderings of Apple's next iPhone reveal that the new device will look very similar to the iPhone 5s

Apple's next iPhone, widely expected to be called the iPhone 5se, has been revealed in leaked images showing the design of the new handset.

The images suggest that the 5se will be the same size and shape as the 5s - the last iPhone to feature a four-inch screen - with some minor design changes.

For example, designs for iPhone case makers obtained by 9to5Mac show that the lock button will be moved from the top to the right-hand side of the device, like on the iPhone 6.

However, separate schematics obtained by OnLeaks appear to show that the button will remain on the top.

Apple originally moved the lock button from the top to the side of the device with the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus - partly because the larger screen sizes make the top difficult to reach.

If the iPhone 5se retains the 4-inch screen size of the iPhone 5s, there would be no reason to move the button, other other than to create consistency with the rest of the iPhone line.

Apple traditionally updates its iPhone line once a year, at an event in September, but rumours have been building for months that Apple is developing a new device that will launch in the Spring.

A recent report in 9to5Mac claims that the new iPhone will be unveiled at an event on Tuesday March 15, alongside the iPad Air 3 and Apple Watch 2 .

Although there are plenty of rumours flying about the iPhone 7 , this is NOT that phone. This is what many are expecting to be called the iPhone 5se .

The iPhone 7 is expected to launch in September 2016 - according to the usual schedule.

Apple currently sells three iPhone models - the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and 5.5-inch 6s Plus, which were both launched in September 2015, and the 4-inch iPhone 5s, which launched in September 2013.

The iPhone 5se is rumoured to be a replacement for the iPhone 5s - bringing Apple's 4-inch iPhone up to date with the other two devices.

The "se" suffix has reportedly been described in two ways by Apple employees: as a "special edition" variation of the 4-inch iPhone screen size, and as an "enhanced" version of the iPhone 5s.

Earlier leaked photos suggest that it will take some design queues from the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus - with curved glass edges and a "Touch ID" fingerprint reader .
