In what seems like an unlikely way for Apple to take the phone, the source has apparently managed to get his hands on an aluminium shell from the phone, with the relevant logo cut out.
As this information has not yet been verified, or indeed leak by sources closes to the business – it’s best not to get your hopes up.
It would also prove interesting to see what effect such a move would have on battery life. Which is already a bone of contention for many iPhone owners.
Sure it would be cool, but is it really practical? Would you want to shout from the rooftops that your holding the latest (and probably most expensive) smartphone on the market, as you walk home on that dark winters night..?
The shell also appears to back up rumours of a slightly larger iPhone, as it measures 4.7 inches. The current iPhone 5s is only 4 inches.
