    Apple recently introduced its official Lightning dock. On this accessory's page over on the Apple store website, there are a handful of pictures showing the company's various smartphones attached to the dock.

    That's where the image you can see on the left shows up. This is a device that looks like the iPhone 5c from two years ago, but it clearly has the Touch ID fingerprint sensor embedded in its Home button - which the iPhone 5c doesn't.

    This naturally leads us to wonder whether this is simply a render created by mistake by an Apple employee (who maybe forgot about the lack of Touch ID on the iPhone 5c), or if it's something more.

    See, an iPhone 6c has long been rumored over the past few months, and it was said to come later this year with a 4-inch touchscreen just like the 5c before it. The Touch ID fingerprint scanner was featured in the rumors as a given for the new affordable model, by the way.

    Yet given how secretive Apple usually likes to be about its future handsets, it's more likely that this is nothing but an error.
