Rumors of an all-glass iPhone have been swirling for months but they've just been confirmed by a prominent Apple supplier. Allen Horng, the CEO of Catcher Technology, which has been making the chassis for the iPhone for years, said at the company's annual shareholder meeting that Apple will make its 2017 iPhone with a glass casing reinforced by a metal frame, reports Forbes. He added that it's an expensive process requiring "advanced processing technology.
Horng noted: "As far as I know, only one [iPhone] model will adopt glass casing next year." That would mean either the iPhone 8 Plus or the rumored iPhone Pro, speculates Forbes. MB
