Is Apple iPhone 5 going to get an Aluminum Backing?

Aluminum Backing for iPhone 5?

This mock up looks like iPhone 3GS with Aluminum backing? So will iPhone’s design go back to iPhone 3GS-like? To be honest, I don’t think so, at least not for iPhone 5. I don’t think Apple will change their design so soon, but who knows? iPad 2 have a changed in design although iPad is only out for 1 year.

Why Apple might not go back to Glass backing like iPhone 4?

  1. Remember our legendary White iPhone 4? Due to the white backing, iPhone 4 have light leaks and flash issue
  2. Glassgate – some iPhone 4 users dropped their phone and cracked the backing as the back of iPhone 4 is not as strong as the screen. Results shows that iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G are more durable than iPhone 4
  3. Unified Looks for all Apple Product – Apple Macbook Pro, iPads and iPod Touch all have aluminum backing or full-body, thus it will be a more unified look for iPhone to have it too?

No one knows for sure what we will be getting for iPhone 5, so let’s wait and see!
