Every now and then, a rumor pops up that is so bizarre and stupid that we have to cover it. Ok, so a lot of people are talking about Apple maybe making a low-cost international phone, possibly using plastic to cut costs. Unlikely, but vaguely within the bounds of possibility. Then, along comes DigiTimes and says something jaw-droppingly bizarre.
However, other rumors are circulating that the entry-level iPhone will adopt a chassis mixed with plastic and metal, with the internal metal parts being able to be seen from outside through special design, the sources noted.
No. Just…no. Can we get a picture of Jony Ive facepalming? There has to be one somewhere.
If you’re really desperate to see the guts of your iPhone 5? iPhone5Mod has a translucent body kit. Use that instead.
