It's only been a few months since Apple released the iPhone 5, but one designer already has a vision for what the next model should look like.

Federico Ciccarese, an Italian designer, has come up with a series of stunning renders for the iPhone 6 -- assuming that's what Apple ends up calling the next redesign of the device -- which would represent a significant change to the phone's external design and operating system.

The concept for the iPhone 6 is inspired by the shape of the iPod Nano, though when applied to the iPhone it bares some resemblance to the Nokia Lumia. At the same time, Federico has re-imagined the look and feel of the operating system with a concept he calls iOSX, which is a fusion between iOS and the Mac OS X.

Since it will likely be several months before the next iPhone is released, there haven't been many rumors yet about how the device will look. One analyst recently predicted that the next iPhone would come in more screen sizes and more colors, the latter of which is something that is already available for the iPod and iPod Nano.

Ciccarese has released concept designs for several previous Apple products, including the iPhone 5 and the much-rumored Apple television, both of which featured gorgeous curved displays.
