Apple Says: So Long Aluminum; Hello Glass!
This entry was posted on Monday, April 25, 2016.
Turns out those super-cool aluminum cases Apple used to secure the guts of their iPhones are going away--in favor of a much more stylish glass frame. That's good news for some who say the aluminum casing made the iPhone much more slippery. And we suppose bad news for the people who hated the way the glass casing shattered at even the hint of being dropped.
Apple will release the iPhone 7 in the fall, but attention has already shifted in the media to the iPhone 8. Rumors about the iPhone 8 possibly having a glass casing have been reported on many Apple sites, and if that happens it could be the biggest change to the iPhone's design in years.
The last time Apple used glass casing was back when the iPhone 4 and 4s were released. Both of those models proved to be very popular among users, and there’s no reason to think that the iPhone 8 wouldn’t follow in their supremely successful footsteps.
