It's called making a stupid mistake. Thank you for understanding.
The iPhone 6 will not be getting any glass inserts as it is clearly evident in these drawings and pictures. But what is interesting is how the top and bottom rounded ends caps are separate parts. In some CAD drawing, they are even rendered a different color. The bodies could well have been made out of the same uni-body aluminum Apple is famous for, but instead are separately attached parts.There would have to be a good reason for that. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that the top and bottom ends will be made out of Liquidmetal.
Those two end pieces are the the parts that would receive the most wear and tear, and unlike aluminum, Liquidmetal is stronger and retains a scratch-free surface longer. If Apple were to begin using Liquidmetal, incrementally on smaller parts would make the most sense.
I wouldn't be surprised if they changed out the glass on the back for some 'apologetic plastic'
personally i just want to see them make the iPhones and especially the iPads way more repairable. It's idiotic that one has to replace a whole iPad over a blown speaker or a bad battery. particularly out of warranty.
if they were to do that then they can keep the 5C/5S designs as far as I'm concerned.
unless of course those drawings are wrong. We saw a lot of mockups and drawings of that teardrop phone and it never happened.
Yeah but the actual photos of the case look very convincing. Those are not 3d printed parts. Those are very precise and intricate cnc machined parts. They're the real deal.
Watching the video again after the end of the 5 cycle makes me appreciate the iPhone 5 even more. Still looks classy as hell and the level of precision is mind boggling. I think what they have learned prom previous products and the robotics involved today in assembly only now make things like the iWatch possible for them.
