RUMOR: iPhone 5 to Have Aluminum Backing
Posted on March 7, 2011 by eli courey
Now that the iPad 2 has been announced, the Apple rumors have switched to the iPhone. Most likely Apple will be unveiling the next-generation iPhone this June, but of course none of us want to wait that long to know the details. Many people are calling the next iPhone the iPhone 5, which would make sense since it’s the 5th-generation iPhone.
Citing a Chinese source, Japanese site Macotakara says that Apple is abandoning the iPhone 4’s glass back construction for the iPhone 5. They say that the iPhone 5 will have an all-aluminum rear case, similar to the iPad 2. WiFi signals will go through the Apple logo, which will be made from a plastic resin. Macotakara has a pretty good accuracy rate when it comes to rumors, so this could actually be true.
