We told you a few days ago that the new iPad 2 may give us some indication that the next iPhone will be of a similar design, and a white version will be available from day one.
With the new iPad 2 having a brushed aluminum back, it was thought using the same set up with the next generation of iPhone will stop the excess light which was thought to reflect off the white iPhone 4. Now today my colleague Chris Maugham is reporting the next generation of iPhone is set to have an aluminum casing.
The casing is also said to house a new redesigned antenna courtesy of a resin Apple logo embedded on the back. This new casing should not only make the device stronger and less acceptable to scratching, but also lighter. You would have thought Apple will also be looking to make the iPhone 5 thinner as well, which we have just seen with the launch of the iPad 2.
Many people were holding out for a white iPhone 4, but it is highly unlikely this will ever come to market now, as we are only a few months away before Apple usually announces the next handset. But the possibility of having a white iPhone 5 to match their white iPad 2 will make a lot of people happy.
Do you like the idea of the iPhone 5 have aluminum back?
