Ooooh. The iPhone 5 rumors are starting to get juicy. While it’s all but certain a refresh is due this summer, we don’t know much about it until now. Macrumors via GadgetsDNA is reporting that Apple is going back to aluminum backing!
Decision to design similar to iPod touch instead of using glass is supposed that Apple seems to stop problems which are told widely damages from scratching, difficulties of painting white and weight of glass.
Along with a switch back to the very first iPhone’s backing material, Apple is apparently redesigning the antenna as well. This is obvious that Apple will need to redesign it after a backing change.
This news comes a day after we reported LTE compatibility for the iPhone 5 is not possible. What other benefits do you think we’ll get with an aluminum backed iPhone? Lighter? Thinner?
