This is (Probably) the Back of Apple’s Next iPhone

When rumour websites get their hands on parts for the next iPhone, it’s usually a good indicator of what the product will look like, particularly if it’s the entire back, sides, and front glass. It looks like 9to5 Mac has done just that, with both a black and white back case, and some black front glass. It matches up with most of the rumours so far, including a taller display area, and a smaller dock connector.

The photos show a brushed metal area in the middle of the back. It looks great on the black model, like a tuxedo jacket, but the white frame looks odd. It’s going to be something that requires seeing it in person, not just in photos.
