Whenever Apple release an S version of the iPhone many users seem to feel letdown because they expect so much more, but it seems as though we are more worried about what the device looks like rather than what it performs like. This was the issue with the 4S because many of my friends (Apple haters) thought it would be funny to say it’s just the same as the outgoing model, but they never seem to think there’s more going on inside. Anyway this will not be an issue this year because the new iPhone 5 will look decidedly different — the question is how though?
In the coming months we will no doubt begin to hear many rumors not only concerning the release date for the 6th-genertaion iPhone but also its hardware specs and more importantly to some, the design of the exterior. We do find it interesting that so many people out there have differing approaches when it comes to how the new iPhone 5 will look.
Over the years we have seen that Apple likes to be very different when it comes to what their products look like, you only have to look at the iMac and when the MacBook Air was first launched, but it was the original iPhone that amazed many of us. Apple knows that they need to keep ahead of the game and while some of you will now suggest they are falling ever further behind, we should remember that they always have a way of surprising us.
A recent article looks at how Apple could surprise us by making good on one of their patents that will offer an all-glass portable device, which as we know would help to increase signal strength because it would flow unhindered. Most of the iPhone is already made from glass, with just the metal antenna band running around the edge of the device. If this were the case then Apple would need to put the antenna back on the inside, which would not pose much of an issue for signal but we do fear that this could take up valuable space for the latter, as we know the iPhone is not exactly king when it comes to battery performance.
While it’s hard to come to terms with an all-glass iPhone we are almost certain that the 6th-genertaion model will have a larger display, there have been many suggestions in regards to its size but not for a 4.6-inch model. We have seen many Android phones getting bigger but we just don’t know if current iPhone users would want such a big device in their hands? Personally speaking I would like my next iPhone to come with a larger screen and I think 4.6-inch would be the maximum, although 4.3-inch would be preferable. There are many other aspects we would love to see change with the iPhone 5 such as these, which as you will see will make Apple’s next iPhone far more superior.
These are two different approaches to the new iPhone 5 but which of the two would you rather see, an all-glass design or a much-needed larger version?
