"Ready for China" iPhone 5 Will Have Plastic Casing

Reportedly out later this year


The new iPhone will reportedly resemble the iPhone 5 from the front but Apple will replace that handset's aluminium body with a cheaper plastic casing.

Jeremy Horwitz, of iLounge, claims that "reliable sources" have told him in detail what the new device will look like. He said the new device will have a 'retina' display and feature Apple's new Lightning connector for charging and syncing.
