We might not have had the iPhone 6 reveal of our lives (you know, with a glittering, glowing larger-than-life model getting lowered down from the WWDC heavens like a Bluetooth-enabled Beyonc茅), but it was discussed in a read-between-the-lines sort of way thanks to a generous helping of iOS 8 scoop that placed your iPhone at the center of your health and your home.

We know the next operating system has a whole kit devoted to syncing your mobile life up with the smart appliances and settings around your house, but an Apple patent reveals a new feature for future iPhone models that will bring your phone up to speed with your Lyric thermostat and your Aros A/C. Apple was recently granted a patent that would enable your device to automatically unlock depending on where you are.

In the drawing taken from Apple鈥檚 patent filing, the auto-lock system is shown detecting different devices at home. Here, your pad becomes the wearable that unlocks your iPhone to say it鈥檚 just you using it to check Twitter. The feature could work while you鈥檙e at your crib, at work, at a friends 鈥 adjusting its security levels based on locations you鈥檝e told it are safe. In not-so-safe spots, you could boost security features, like having to enter your code and use Apple鈥檚 Touch ID fingerprint scanner to log on.

There鈥檚 also an exciting newsflash for anyone out there rocking the Spiderman App, aka a shattered web-like screen (get it?!) courtesy of a couple spills. It鈥檚 rumored that the iPhone 6 screen will be made of scratch resistant, durable sapphire 鈥 and this video, posted today on MacRumors, puts a mock up of its front panel to a bend test.

From the video, it looks like your next iPhone comes with a whole new 鈥渁nti-Spiderman App鈥 already installed. Phew. Does this mean you can use it for the other stuff Spiderman is known for? Fighting crime and all that? We thought so.

Don鈥檛 get too excited just yet, patents don鈥檛 mean insta-products (we鈥檙e still waiting on that MacBook Sun鈥) and the sapphire screen is still a rumor, but we鈥檒l keep you updated with all the news and updates we download about the iPhone 6 鈥檛il we鈥檙e Yo-ing you from it!

Are you looking forward to the iPhone 6? What features do you want to see on the future phone? Share below!
