Thread: First iPhone 5 Unboxing Photos Surface

is a discussion within the

iPhone News

forums, a part of the

General iPhone

section;
Wait now I'm confused...Is the rear all glass or just the top and bottom are glass? From the camera reflection it looks like there's glass over the middle aluminum part.

    I'm pretty sure Apple's site doesn't include that in the list of included accessories.

    It won't be so bad...it would just be like an iphone app on ipad and iphone 5 is not so much bigger than iphone 4/4S, so there you go

    Well I can tell you from personal experience why this would not work for me... I actually work for a living and will not call in sick to receive a phone from FedEx.
    Instead, I will be going to a low volume AT&T retail location and wait for 30 minutes to get mine. Oh and BTW, I will get mine before you on my way to work and didn't have to stay up until 3am to order it and make sure I'm home all day to receive the package.

    Right.

    I can't put my finger on it but there is just something I don't like about the back of the phone. I prefer the black glass =\

    I don't like that either. The iP4/4S definitely looks sleeker to me in terms of the back housing. Maybe it'll grow on me later.

    Unless you have some inside information and can convince me of that I'll disagree with you. Apps designed to run on the 4" screen will simply have a small black bar above & below them. It will be no different than watching a 4x3 SD program on an HDTV. The picture is the same as it would be on an SD TV, but you just have the black bars on left & right.

    Plus, as has already been mentioned, the new screen size will be the standard and developers will adjust to it. Unlike droid phones, Apple is not simultaneously producing multiple models with multiple screen sizes.

    I hope the back will look better in person because it look hideous in the picture.

    It's the protective plastic that comes with the new phones. The center part of the back is not glass like at all.

    I remember being at my office when everyone's iPhone 4 was delivered (We were all Apple fans), and some got there's the day before the ACTUAL release date and flaunted them to the rest of us who quietly plotted their death. While I doubt mine will show up on Thursday, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Here's to hoping!

    The top and bottom are glass as each houses an antenna. I've seen it noted many times that the double finish was intentional because an all metal housing would disrupt the RF transmitters. I'm unsure how much validity there is to the statement but it sounded as good to me as any other. The schematic that was released some time back (Which is my background on my Macbook Air) also notes that it needs to be left unobstructed.

    Wow it got banned so fast...
    I didn't even know there was an ad to ban. Weird.

    Out of the 4 generations of iPhone iv owned In the UK they've ALL shipped with a wall charger ie that pronged bit the USB inserts into. If you look at the picture of the unboxing you can clearly see the two pronged US wall charger

    I think it's funny you can already buy the back cover for an iPhone 4 with the same looking metal back.

    O rly?!?!

    I could swear the iPhone 4/s & iPod Touch share a screen size while the iPhone 5 is a different size, that makes multiple models with multiple screen sizes.
