This is the inside information I’ve been waiting for! But an October release? Really?
The Next iPhone: A New Look
Leaked information about the next iPhone has reached the web from a source considered reliable–because he correctly predicted many of the subtle changes of the iPad 3 having held one just before its launch. The chap in question is Jeremy Horowitz, editor of iLounge.com. He says the new phone will indeed be a radical overhaul in design, sporting a taller chassis and being skinnier in depth with an overall size of 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm–a centimeter longer and 2mm thinner than the current one, which is about a 20% drop. It’ll have Gorilla Glass 2 to protect its larger 4-inch screen that’ll have a new aspect ratio. It’ll have a flat metal back plate, and Apple will abandon the legacy iPod dock connector for a new smaller rounded port.
