    With the design of iOS 7 being very much with this in mind. It fits well with the new unibody aluminium design.

    That looks more like a Blackberry. I always thought that was a funny looking mock up.

    I wouldn't mind an alu uni-body, though. Perhaps the additional alu wrapping onto the top and bottom would assuage all those people worried about bending their alu iPhones. :rolleyes:

    This is my personal favorite iPhone mockup ever. Considering the time it was made, it was so good but so wrong.

    That's the magic mouse phone!

    The iPhone 5 is basically a uni-body aluminium design.

    Jokes and bad mock ups aside, isn't the IP5 already a unibody of sorts? That new design that helped them get it slimmer is unibody-esq.

    This is just my opinion and nothing else but my opinion.

    I think Apple should buy HTC, take the HTC One, load iOS 7 on it, slap an Apple logo on the back and call it the iPhone 6.

    Why all the curved designs? I absolutely hate curved devices. It's impossible to use them when they're laying on a table.

    That was my thought. It's an aluminum body and frame just like the MacBooks - unibody. What is this post about?

    The iPhone 5's body is already a single piece of aluminum?

    Bordlerless is the way to go. Love the look of that.

    Might pose risks where people knock their phones though, wonder whether it is structurally sound.

    Noticed a lot of iPhone owners don't treat their phones too good, especially women and their throwing it in the handbag routine. *Shudder*

    My brother sent me that link the other day in an email. It's truly stunning and makes me sad that iPhone 6 likely won't be exactly like that. Because it should be. Apple should buy that concept and use the hell out of it. It's epically brilliant. I'm sure Apple will come up with something beautiful as they always do, but that concept is really neat.

    The borderless concept is ugly as **** and also BRUTAL for watching... just about anything on the screen. Same reason that a TV without a Bezel does not exist. It doesn't need to.

    Also the phone would struggle isolating touch events from around the screen has you try to hold it. The guy in the photo would probably be triggering events at both the lower left and lower right of that screen. We already heard enough about how people hold their iPhones a couple of years ago, we don't need to hear it all again.
