iPhone 5 Silicone Case Pictures Reveal a Thinner and Tapered Design?

Share:

Yesterday we saw the release of iPhone 5 case schematics, today we see actual pictures of silicone cases themselves, according to 9to5Mac.

These cases reveal a slimmer iPhone with a tapered edge design, similar to the current iPad and previous iPhone 3G/3GS design. Considering the ergonomics of the existing iPhone 4, a taper design is easier and more comfortable to hold.

The last time we heard rumours of a tapered aluminum design came from Macotakara, and This is My Next mentioned a tear drop design. Rumours of the home button becoming larger and gesture-based have been thrown into the mix as well. Keeping track of all these rumours will make one go crazy. Let’s just wait for September to roll around!

Who wants a tapered edge design? Or do you like the existing iPhone 4 edges?

    I love the iPhone 4 design. The volume buttons are so easy to find without looking.

  • I don’t mind a change back to the curved design. There was nothing wrong with it before. I just hope we don’t go back to the plastic back. Be cool to see an aluminum uni-body design, like the iPad 2.

  • Prefer the tapered design, but then I have a 3G that I’m waiting (and waiting) for the 5 to be released to replace it with. But my daughter’s 4 doesn’t feel quite as cozy in the hand.

  • Will there maybe a design change for next summer or next fall. September is going to be the same design. everything else that’s been coming out has suggested that. If anything this could be just and old 3gs design.

    I want it to be easily distinguishable from an older iPhone. I didn’t like that the 3G and 3GS were identical. A slight desing change from the 4 is fine with me. As long as it’s beautiful.

    Tapered design reminds me of the tapered dress pants back in the 80’s.  It was cool back then, but now it’s just an old, out-dated look.  The iphone squared edge looks 10x better, and more inline with today’s design aesthetic.

    Agreed. Curved edges fit the hand better.
