iPhone 5 to be completely redesigned

Posted In iPhone - By Joon On Friday, December 30th, 2011 With 2 Comments

Boy Genius Report is reporting that Apple is planning on launching a completely redesigned iPhone in the fall of next year. This would follow the trend set by the release of the iPhone 4S of new hardware being released later in the year rather than the mid year release. We all want to protect our new phone, but does an iphone 11 case fit an iphone 13?

According to their sources, the iPhone will have an aluminum back rather than the glass found on the iPhone 4 and 4S. The new design will have the incorporation of a rubber or plastic bezel, similar to the Apple iPhone bumpers that will cover to protect the device’s antenna from direct skin contact.

We have also learned that Apple is planning to use a rubber or plastic material — similar to the material used in the company’s bumper cases — that will be built into the new iPhone case. In all likelihood, this material will be used as a bezel surrounding the front edge of the phone (like the iPhone 3GS bezel) and it will serve two purposes. First, it will join the glass iPhone face with a new aluminum back plate. It will also cover a redesigned antenna system that surrounds the device, allowing Apple to build the rear case out of aluminum without having to use a large plastic insert above the antennas as the company does on its iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G.

BGR has has a mixed track record when it comes to hardware rumors, but it has come relatively close on a couple of rumors, such as the late 2011 iPhone lineup, with the one slipup being the WIMAX exclusive iPhone 5.

    Hey john!, I have a sprint I phone 4… Has no sim card slot and was wondering if its unlock able for any other phone company and which once….your response would be greatly appreciated.

    If you unlock a CDMA phone it will work on CDMA networks. However, on come carriers some features may not work. It would work on Verizon or Sprint basically. Maybe some smaller names as well if they are CDMA

    In the US:

    CDMA – Verizon, Sprint
    GSM – AT&T, TMobile

    NOTE: If you care CDMA/GSM are the actually technology behind how your voice is sent to other people when you talk to them. It is basically the core of a cell provider network
