Apple Tipped To Release Thinner, More Expensive iPhone In 2025

Apple will reportedly add a new, thinner iPhone to the lineup in 2025 with the potential for the previously rumored iPhone Ultra starting to increase.

The news comes thanks to a report by Wayne Ma and Qianer Liu at The Information which notes that Apple is working on a thinner device that will use an aluminum chassis and other design changes.

One change includes the moving of the rear camera array as well as a tweak to the Dynamic Island that could see a new pull-shaped cutout replace the current setup. This would likely mean the Face ID technology being placed beneath the display as has previously been rumored.

Apple is still testing different designs for the slimmer phone, which could include an aluminum chassis and a smaller hole and pill-shaped cutout for its front-facing camera and sensors, one person with direct knowledge of the matter said. The phone will include Apple’s latest-generation processor, likely called the A19, and could have an improved front camera for video calls and selfies. The screen will measure somewhere between the 6.12-inch diagonal display of the standard iPhone and the 6.69-inch display of the iPhone Pro Max, the person added. The rear cameras could be relocated from the upper-left corner of the phone’s back to the top center as part of the redesign, another person with direct knowledge said.

This comes following the revelation that Apple is no longer expected to offer a Plus iPhone with the release of the iPhone 17 family of devices in 2025.

Apple was previously tipped to be working on a new, Ultra version of the iPhone for a launch last year. That never happened, but this report does appear to be hinting that the device is back on the table and that it will finally break cover next year.
