Yes it's thinner, has a bigger screen, and has a aluminum back but can this be a redesign or does it fall along with the iPhone 4, 4S? Asking this because it helps on what to expect on the next generation iPhone. If this isn't a major redesign considered to Apple than we should see one in the next gen iPhone, correct? This is just opinions that I am asking for. Obviously we will not know till the day but knowing Apple, do you think they enjoy/love the design so much that they will continue to use it for another year? I'm on contract with an iPhone 4S and am eligible for an upgrade on may of 2013 so I am waiting on the next gen iPhone instead of getting the iPhone 5 so I'd like to know where Apple might head into for their next gen iPhone.
