And finally, rumours of a cheap iPhone simply won't go away and today we've got an image of what is purporting to be that exact device. There's every chance that this could be nothing, but once in a blue moon random leaks turn out to be true, we've still got a fair few months to wait before we hear anything official about new iPhones though!
