Apple’s Slimming Down: Is a Super-Thin iPhone Coming in 2025?

Apple fans, get ready for a potential pocket-hugging revolution! Rumours are swirling that Apple might be planning a super-thin iPhone for release in 2025. Here’s what we know so far.

According to a report by The Information, citing sources familiar with the project, Apple is working on a major redesign codenamed “D23.” This project will culminate in a significantly thinner iPhone, potentially arriving alongside the iPhone 17 in September 2025.

The report suggests this ultra-thin iPhone will be a premium device, priced even higher than the current top-of-the-line iPhone Pro Max, which starts at a hefty $1,200. This price tag hints at potentially advanced technology and materials used to achieve the slim design.

Apple’s Slimming Down: Is a Super-Thin iPhone Coming in 2025?

While whispers of a super-thin iPhone are exciting, it’s important to remember that the iPhone 16 lineup hasn’t even been officially announced yet. Apple typically unveils its new iPhones in September, so we can expect more details on the iPhone 16 in the coming months.

News of a slim iPhone isn’t entirely new. Back in May, analyst Jeff Pu floated the idea of an “iPhone 17 Slim” in a research note. This phone will have a screen size somewhere between the standard iPhone (6.12 inches) and the Pro Max (6.69 inches).

The Information’s report goes beyond just the thinness factor. It suggests that this potential “iPhone 17 Slim” might also feature a redesigned rear camera placement. Instead of the usual top-left corner location, the camera system could be positioned smack dab in the centre at the top of the phone.

Apple recently launched a new iPad Pro that boasts an incredibly thin design, even surpassing the legendary iPod Nano in terms of slimness. This new iPad Pro utilizes an OLED display, which has received positive reviews for its durability despite its thin profile. Durability tests conducted by tech reviewers like JerryRigEverything further highlight the potential of this technology in a future iPhone.

Apple faces fierce competition in the smartphone market. Their iPhone revenue for the second quarter of 2024 actually declined by 10% compared to the same period last year. This slim iPhone, if it comes to fruition, could be a strategic move to entice users and maintain Apple’s position in the ever-evolving smartphone landscape.

While the prospect of a super-thin iPhone is intriguing, it’s still early days. We’ll have to wait and see how the “iPhone 17 Slim” (or whatever its name may be) materializes and how it fares in the market. In the meantime, keep an eye out for the upcoming iPhone 16 announcement, which is likely to happen sometime this September.
