It Has A New, 'Unibody' Design

Given Apple’s track record, it seems there's little to no chance that the new iPhone will come out looking like a carbon copy of its older siblings. According to an Apple inside source, it won't.

Business Insider quoted Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, who reportedly toured the facilities of Apple tech suppliers in China, saying that the new iPhone will tout a "sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case."

If White’s right, this wouldn’t be a first for the folks over in Cupertino; Apple’s MacBook Pro and MackBook Air (left) line of notebooks come with a Unibody-like aluminum casing today.

"We believe the iPhone 5 ramp for the December quarter could be extraordinary, dwarfing previous launches and driving the stock closer to our $1,001 price target," White continued.
