Redesigned next-generation iPhone to launch next year in fall
It was just a couple of months ago that the iPhone 4S was launched and the rumors for the next iPhone have already started crawling out of the woodwork. This newest one is courtesy BGR, who reports that they have heard from a close source that the next generation iPhone will launch in fall of 2012, which around the same time the 4S was released.
They also have information about the design, which is said to be completely new. The next iPhone will have an all-aluminum back which will be mated to the front glass surface by a combination of rubber and plastic sides, which is also where the antenna system will reside.
The shift to aluminum seems logical since the iPhone is the only Apple product to not use it in the construction of the device. Of course, aluminum will block the transmission and reception of signal, so the sides had to be made with a non-interfering material such as plastic or rubber.
We'd like to say we'll find out soon if this information is correct or not but there is still almost an entire year to go before the next iPhone comes out.
