    It looks very sexy indeed. I'd prefer it without those antenna lines and camera bump.

    I'd hate it. I feel like the curved edge is a weak point when holding it. My iPhone 6 has creaked before.

    Those antenna lines look awful in my opinion. Prefer the current design

    The iPad Air looks great just the way it is. Personally I don't like the new look of the iPhone 6's. The iPhone 5S looks way better.

    The curved sides and front glass on the iPhone serve a purpose. When you hold the iPhone in your hand, you are squeezing it (unlike how one holds an iPad). The squeeze is far more comfortable with rounded sides. Then, as you swipe from the edge of the display a thousand times per day, the rounded glass makes for an unbelievably great feel.

    Neither of these purposes that dictate the iPhone's design are applicable on the iPad. Therefor, any such design in the iPhone style would be purely aesthetic and serve no functional purpose.

    The chamfer is pretty old design but it is mostly hidden if u throw a case on it.

    Another vote for the current design.

    I wish they did it earlier. The side of iPads, especially on the iPad Pro, always cut into my hands.

    iPads do not need the antenna line. For the WiFi version, the Apple logo is the antenna window and the black/white bar on the top is the LTE/3G antenna for the Cellular version.

    Im not a fan of the 6 design personally. The curve makes it seem like the bezel is bigger. Im curious of what a iPhone5 design of the iPad would look like. Either way, perturbing camera is atrocious IMO.

    I'd assume to follow design they would replace the LTE bar with the iPhone lines
