    I believe the iPhone 4 used it for some SIM trays or tools as a test, but subsequently the Macbook Pro redesign went from aluminum to LiquidMetal for the unibody design. Not positive though.

    They won't use liquid metal for the case simply because of the antenna. Why do you think every other case out there is some form of plastic?

    Liquid metal is made from a combination of 3 or more metals, so it's bad for antennas and the iPhone is bad enough at making regular phone calls.

    The new Lumias and HTC Ones cases are showing the way of the future: beautiful, elegant light weight and strong. By comparison, the iPhone (as well made as it is) looks like it was put together in someone's garage.
