There are rumors that the next Apple iPhone 6 is currently named iPhone Air, hinting a new thin body as the iPad Air. Recent rumors have confirmed this, reporting that the next iPhone will only be 6mm thick, and the weight will be slightly more. The main appearance however will not differ from the current iPhone 5s.
The form Apple’s next iPhone will take is one of the hot topics right now, but other than screen size rumors, there hasn’t been much body thickness rumors. But according to the latest purported leaks, the iPhone will have an extremely thin body form, around 6mm, while the iPhone 5s is 7.6mm thick.
What is also mentioning according to the manufacturing chain is that the next iPhone will have a similar appearance as the iPhone 5s, with a 3-section back. This report matches what was described previously by WeChat tipster TD’s Home.
There was rumors before that two iPhones were being tested, having 4.7-inch and 5-inch screens, the latest inside news confirms it as having a 4.7-inch screen and will have full metal construction. If this is the case, then it is consistent with the new iPhone adding weight.
According to the WeChat user TD’s Home, out of the two iPhone 6s being tested, one of the bodies has a 172:67 ratio. If the iPhone 6 touchscreen is 4.7-inches, and given that it will retain its Home Button, then having a body that is longer than the 5-inch screen Galaxy S4 is also reasonable. Combining the report that the appearance of the new iPhone will not drastically change, perhaps the latest iPhone can also be labeled as a ‘blown-up’ iPhone.
Whether the next iPhone will be named iPhone 6 or iPhone Air is not yet confirmed. According the latest rumor on WeChat, iPhone 5s will be priced down in May to $100, if this is the case then the new iPhone could be released concurrently and would still be priced at $199 with a 2 year contract.
