16 July 2012 – The old trusted anonymous Chinese source has popped up on a Japanese language blog MacOtakara and said that production for the next iPhone has started already. The blog also posted an update regarding the design at the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminium.
"In the area where aluminium is not used, there is glass", which unlike the iPhone 4 and 4S which was sandwiched together by glass. The change could be to accommodate the new 4-inch Retina Display with 16:9 ratio. Older iPhones has a 3.5-inch display with 3:2 aspect ratio.
This rumoured design contrast against previous reports, that the new iPhone will get an all-aluminium back similar to the iPad.
