A new rumor suggests that Apple’s next series of iPhones will use an all-glass body, eschewing the metal frame in part to better support wireless charging. The rumor stems from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who further claimed that Apple has wanted to try an all-glass aesthetic for years.
If the rumor is true, we can expect to see the new chassis next September, when Apple will likely release up to three new iPhones to celebrate the device’s 10th anniversary. These may include all-glass updates of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, in addition to an iPhone with an OLED display and a sleek, bezel-less design. It is worth noting that these options may be pared down, just as the rumored iPhone 7 Pro never saw a release. It is also unclear if any of these devices will be named “iPhone 8.”
