  • Leaked iPhone Case Suggests iPhone 5 will be Thinner and Wider


    Apple may have let the cat out of the bag when they released the latest beta version of Photo Stream with an iPhone icon that has different dimensions than the current model. It may have simply been an error of some kind, but now we have more tangible evidence that the next iPhone model will be larger than the iPhone 4. A new iPhone case was recently uncovered that is significantly wider and thinner than the current iPhone model.

    Italian website MacityNet.it recently published photos that show an iPhone 4 sitting inside a new iPhone 5 case. The size difference is instantly noticeable. If this does turn out to be a genuine iPhone 5 case, then the next iPhone model will be huge compared to the last four models.

    Itís not uncommon for case designers to receive the dimensions for new products from Apple before they are even announced. This is done so new cases can be manufactured and go on sale as soon as Apple launches a new product. In the past, case designs have been fairly good early indicators for new iPhone models. Occasionally, Apple makes changes at the last minute, however, rendering early design leaks unreliable. Itís important to take images such as these with a grain of salt. Although cases may in fact be genuine at the time of manufacturing, until Apple releases an actual product, they may all end up in the trash bin.

    Hopefully, this new case will turn out to be the real deal and point to a larger and thinner iPhone 5 model. Apple usually holds a Special Event in September to launch new iPod models. Apple didnít release a new iPhone model in June or July of this year as they traditionally have done. Itís very likely that Apple will use this event to unveil the iPhone 5 later this month.

    The iPhone 5 is sure to be a giant success for Apple when it is released, and if these images are any indication, then this may be the first iPhone that is actually a giant.

      If this case is at all accurate I'll be a happy man upon the i5's release. Finally iPoT styling on the iPhone. Has anyone held an iPoT 4? VERY comfortable, much more than the i4.

      The 'retina display' is something that Apple made up, so they can call anything they like a retina display Though the idea is that anything above 300dpi is equal to or better than a printed pages and thus, a 'retina display'. Whilst keeping the same resolution, the screen can be increased to 3.8" whilst remaining over 300dpi.

      Forgive me if I'm wrong, but the first picture shows a mute button like cutout on the right, where there weren't any buttons before.

      Hopefully, the iPhone 5 with the size change (if these pictures are reliable) aren't to thin and or light in the hand. I hate the feeling of a phone that's to light, it makes it feel cheap.

      No mute switch. This could be the iPod Touch 5.

      (nope, there is a mute switch area on the other side, apparently)

      Has no one noticed what an awful colour that case is? Surely iPhone owners have more taste?

      If the next iPhone is, indeed, larger it will be a definate point against it when I consider my next phone. When I bought the iP4 it was far better than anything else but this trend to larger phones is one thing that made me think that ruling out others would be even easier in the future as their top end phones are getting fat. One thing I dontvwant is a bigger phone.

      Luckily I don't intend replacing my iP4 any time soon, if Apple do go ahead with this folly then hopfully the iP6 will be a more realistic size.

      But I really doubt this is an iP5 case, I still believe Apple will not change the screen size so might actually reduce the size of the phone.

      We shall see.

      I agree that the Touch has a superior design to the iPhone 4, but never, ever call it an iPoT again. i4, i5? C'mon man, stop being lazy.

      I've seen some really ugly themes out there that are popular, so no, not every Apple fan has good taste.

      And look, a bigger screen is something that Apple NEEDS to implement, no question. Competitors are coming out with 4.3" screens that are 1280x800, which blows the current Retina Display out of the water.

      Besides, the increase in screen size comes with a decrease in thickness and a rounded back, so it will feel BETTER in your pocket/ hand than the iBrick 4 does.

      The sync cable hole alone is enough to make me scream fake on this.

      This certainly looks more like a new iPod case.

      Other than dust, I can't see any pros to this. It would lock users out of 99% of the headphones out there (all the good ones). Also everyone listening in their cars with an aux input. I just don't see this happening. I'd rather get a little dust in a headphone jack than be forced to listed to everything via bluetooth. I got money that says this just isn't going to happen.

      Gosh people hate on things before they are even confirmed, and even then, some how the other couple million who keep buying the product clearly doesn't think so..

      Perfect example... when the iPad was being released.. nearly 7/10 people were talking crap about it, even after they saw it on Keynote. Until they actually held one. Just funny. Just saying.
      7/10? REALLY? Did you poll America or something? /SARCASM If you are basing your numbers on people's responses in forums, people tend to be more vocal about the tings they DON'T like.

      FWIW I think the iPad is still just a silly toy.

      Can't wait for the new iPhone. It must how ever have at least a 4 inch screen. If doesn't I'm going to pass and wait for the Nexus Prime.

      One thing I have seen very little discussion about is announcement date. Does Apple have anything lined up to announce this new phone?
