    Really this report doesn't mean a whole lot. It's basically guessing from the firm, educated guessing but still guessing.

    Even if true I don't know that making the phone out of stainless steel vs aluminum would help that much. It may be harder but it'll still get scratched up a bit. Heck my old S7 Edge ended up with a bunch of scratches on the back and that was made of glass.

    That being said if they do a gloss white iPhone next year there's nothing that will stop me from getting it ;)

    I'm waiting until next year for several reasons, including the possibility of them making the jet black iPhone more scratch resistant.

    A fake rumor of what Apple 'may' make next year? So what.

    I guess I will return my Jet Black 7+with zero scratches and wait instead of enjoying it for a year.

    I'm waiting until next year for the 8 Plus as well. Meanwhile I'm going to enjoy the 7 Plus when it arrives in a couple days. Until then 6S Plus it is!

    That article means nothing. It is pure speculation.

    You guys obviously don't know who KGI and Ming-Chi Kuo is. I would brush this off in a heartbeat if KGI And Kuo hadn't said this. That's one person who is arguably the most reliable person to trust when it comes to apple rumors. I can't recall when he/she has been wrong in predicting(not really prediction as much as inside info)what apple will be doing.

    "Told you" it'd be glass back rather than ceramic.

    It doesn't really matter to those of us who upgrade yearly.

    Agreed. And yes, you did say glass. Just thought I would share.
