The long-rumored less-expensive iPhone is said to be made of plastic. This is to cut back on costs as it’s much cheaper than aluminum or glass.
We’ve seen many concepts. All of them are similar in style to the iPhone 5 in terms of screen size and overall thinness. However, the concepts all feature the plastic back we’ve heard about. It still has that look in most of the mock-ups we’ve seen. As many before have said, it looks a bit like the older, squared MacBooks or possibly even something like one of the old iPods with the more squared off edges.
Here’s a picture of what it could look like.
