The new iPhone is something that we have been hearing about since last year or so, it’s probably the most highly anticipated Apple product launch yet, ever! Rumours about the new iPhone have been spreading strong and fast, with new rumours popping up every day. A lot of the rumours flying around come from very reliable sources, sources which have proven to have reliable information with Apple products in the past; so it’s likely that much of what we know is actually legitimate information.
So what do we know about the new iPhone so far? Well, for one, we have a very good idea of what it’s going to look like. Apple don’t always change the design when they release a new iPhone, so it’s always a nice surprise when they do. Thanks to lots of leaked parts, we know almost exactly what the new iPhone is going to look like – there have been dozens of computer rendered images, and now there is even a mock-up of the new iPhone; you can see a video of it below. It gives a very clear 360 degree view of the new iPhone so you can get the full idea of what to expect in terms of design from this new iPhone.
Here’s the video:
As you can see from the video, there are quite a few changes to the design on this new iPhone. Firstly it’s both taller and slimmer than the 4S, over one third slimmer in-fact. The extra height on the device means the screen is a bit taller too, thanks to an improved screen resolution the new iPhone can fit an additional row of app icons onto the home-screen, so you get 5 rows of apps instead of 4.
A couple of things that you might not of noticed from the video include the relocation of the headphone jack – this always used to be on the top of the iPhone, but it has finally been relocated to the more ideal place of the bottom of the iPhone – they were able to move it here after making some extra space in the bottom of the device by cutting down the size of the ancient dock connector. The dock connector on all Apple products has been the same for years, with many of the I/O pins not even been using anymore, so Apple finally updated this with the new iPhone. Expect to see all of Apples future devices sporting this new smaller dock connector from now on.
The most obvious change in the video is probably the back-plate, you’ll notice its now a two tone metallic type material which looks fantastic – I just hope that it doesn’t scratch as easily as some of the previous materials used on the back of iPods and iPhones.
