For starters, we can now confidently say that Apple’s next iPhone will launch in the fall next year, around the same time that this year’s iPhone 4S launched. 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.
Of course many have predicted a new redesigned iPhone since the 4S is the same exterior as the iPhone 4. Also with the iPhone 4S release being pushed back to the fall, predicting the newest model a year later doesn’t seem out of the question.
Obviously the points about its looks is what seems to be most intriguing.
The iPhone 5 is rumored to have a 4″ display, LTE and NFC technology.
