Apple To Make the iPhone 5 Design Similar to iPad 2?


Some reports have been coming out that Apple may completely scrap the iPhone 4 design in favor of one that is closer in line to the iPad 2’s aluminum backing than the iPhone 4 design.  This new design will also move the antenna into the Apple logo on the back versus the troublesome side location that has plagued the iPhone 4.  Who knows if this is true or not, but it all makes sense to me.  Why wouldn’t Apple try to improve upon the lessons learned with Antennagate?  It makes complete sense that one of the most innovative tech companies would go back to the drawing board on one of their flagship devices and improve upon it.

The last thing the ailing Steve Jobs needs to deal with in 2011 is another controversial iPhone launch.  If this iPhone 5 design change is legit, then it also confirms that Apple themselves conceded to the reception issues that they more or less denied when Antennagate first went down.  What do you think?  Yay, Neigh, or who cares I’m getting a Droid anyway!  You’ve been re-designed even though your creators said you work the way your supposed to…
