Next year marks the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone, and all rumors are pointing to a radical redesign.
This month, there was a pretty considerable spill of information by a top industry executive regarding two new features. We also saw rumors about a a third model with a new screen size, as well as some current rumors reinforced by fresh leaks.
Check out the latest rumors surrounding Apple's next NEXT iPhone.
This will not be an "S" model of the iPhone 7.
MacRumors spotted a report from an analyst at Barclay's that claims Apple will skip the "S" model this year, which has historically followed each new phone version, and jump directly from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8, or possibly "10," in 2017.
Since 2017 marks the iPhone's 10th anniversary, it wouldn't be surprising if Apple does something special to mark the anniversary of its most important product.
The front surface will be all display with no borders or bezels.
Rumors that the iPhone 10 will have an all-display front surface first emerged from John Gruber, the plugged-in Apple blogger and podcaster from Daring Fireball.
Gruber claims he has heard insider scuttlebutt that the iPhone 10's front won't have any bezels or borders, and that it'll be one large display.
It will mostly be made of glass with an aluminum frame.
A report from Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo, who often accurately predicts new Apple products and features, says that the iPhone 10's body will be made of glass. If so, it could have a similar aesthetic as the iPhone 4 and 4s, both of which had a glass back.
A recent report from Japanese news site Nikkei claims that Apple is, indeed, ditching the metal back design for an all-glass back and metal frame.
