iPhone 5 rumored to sport Curved Glass

The next iPhone is getting a more organic shape?

The iPhone 5 is Apple's biggest upcoming mystery product. Everything points to a September release date. The rumors of what the 2011 iPhone is ranges from just a performance upgrade to a NFC and LTE super phone. Taiwanese Digitimes throws in a new rumor today: Apple is adopting a curved glass for the iPhone 5. According to their sources Apple itself bought 200-300 glass cutting machines to push the production of curved glass.

Apple apparently isn't prepared for volume production yet. The yield rate of the curved glass is apparently not there yet. Curved glass is already used in some Android smartphones like the Nexus S. Apple might redesign the iPhone completely in 2012. The latest rumors suggest that the iPhone will keep it's current design in 2011. The iPhone that Apple will release in September is a performance upgrade that many are already calling iPhone 4S.
