Next Generation iPhone Reportedly Measured At 7.6 MM Thick


If you want to talk about a skinny iPhone, point your eyes towards the unreleased next-generation iPhone. Macrumors has pointed to a report claiming the next-generation iPhone has measured in at 7.6 mm thick.

The measurements were taken by Chinese newspaper Apple Daily, who has allegedly obtained one of the leaked iPhones presented during these past few weeks.

Based off reports from case-makers in June, the Apple Daily report is spot on. I would’ve preferred more details, but past measurement reports pretty much verify this latest report:

1. The phone is much bigger, measuring 58.47 mm wide, 123.83 mm high and 7.6 mm thin. The screen is 4?.
2. The earphone jack has been relocated to the bottom of the phone.
3. The dock connector is much smaller, similar in size to micro USB.

Ranking up against the iPhone 4S, the next-generation iPhone is 1.7 mm thinner, that’s a 18 percent reduction in thickness. The height is also expected to receive an upgrade, estimated at 4.0 inches rather than 3.5 inches.

Sounds to me as if Tim Cook’s “doubling down” on security statement during the AllThingsD conference in May was simply a mere false statement. We are absolutely buried in next generation iPhone evidence at this point.

Are iPhones these days getting just too thin? I’l personally take battery life over a 1.7 mm size reduction.

    You never know … Apple could have leaked all this info as part of a ruse … We won’t know until the announcement!

  • Atleast were only a month away 🙂

  • I just find it annoying that the phone won’t be a bit wider.. taller is fun but at least 5mm wider would have been great

    Think the smaller port could be a MagSafe type connection like on the Macbooks? Would be kinda neat!

  • honestly its quite a bummer if it turns out to be true.
    It does look pretty crappy in the stretched out form. Making it a lil wider wud definitely maintain the aesthetics of the device

  • its def quite a bummer if it turns out to be true.
    Making the phone a bit wider would better maintain the aesthetics coz honestly these elongated mock ups look pretty crappy

    Same here. Thinner is not bad, but I’d be more impressed by “Hey, we increased the battery life by 20-25%!”

    Maybe this iPhone 5 prototype we see is the decoy! This may be the doubling down on security Tim Cook was talking about.
