iPhone 6 Design

iPhone 6 will take its design cues from the new iMac.



It will be RAZOR THIN on the edge and will curve out toward the back, but not as much as a curve as the iMac in proportion. Twice as thin as iPhone 5 on the side and curved like the 3G. Back will be made of liquid metal.


My prediction

I really don't want to see that in an iPhone. The iPhone was never ergonomic.

I disagree, the 3G was a pleasure to hold

Agreed! Compared with the iPhone 5 it was heavy. However, it's curved back fitted the hand in a more comfortable way than its successors.

Not a bad prediction given that the current iPhone is just like the previous generation iMac and there's a precedent for the curved back (3G/3GS).

Make it with a bigger screen and I'll get it.... Heck I'll most likely get it anyway but would like a bigger screen.

Really? I don't see any similarities between the iPhone and the last generation of iMacs.

They made the current generation iPhone squarish (compared to the original, 3G and 3GS) much like the last generation iMac. OP is predicting the iPhone 6 will follow the design of the new iMac.

What about the headphone jack? It can't get much thinner than the iPhone 5.

I hope they bring this back. I really liked the 3G(S)

They could make mini iMac stands as docks.
