As per the latest reports coming out of the rumour mill the next iPhone is to be named iPhone Air, hinting a new thin body as the iPad Air. The next iPhone will only be 6mm thick, and the weight will be slightly more. The main appearance however will not differ from the current iPhone 5s.

The form Apple's next iPhone will take is one of the most discussed topics at present, but other than screen size and material rumours, there hasn't been much talk about the body thickness rumors. But the latest leaks, point to an ultra thin body form, around 6mm, which is much slimmer than the 7.6 mm thickness of iPhone 5s.

According to the reports coming out from the manufacturing chains, the next iPhone will have an appearance similar to iPhone 5s, with a 3-section back which is consistent with the previous reports.
There are also rumours which suggest that the body of the new iPhone will have a 172:67 ratio. Combining this fact with the report that iPhone 6 will be having a 5 inch touchscreen and given that it will retain its Home Button, and the appearance of the new iPhone will not drastically change, then having a body size that is similar to Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also reasonable. If this the case, then the new iPhone will add weight due to its sheer size and full metal body.

Next iPhone to come in two different screen sizes

Also as per purported leaks coming from Weibo, the biggest social networking site in China, suggests two iPhones of 4.7-inch and 5-inch screens are being tested. Additionally, the upcoming iOS devices is supposed to sport biometric features that will represent huge upgrades from the TouchID fingerprint scanner of iPhone 5s.

Whether the next iPhone will be named iPhone 6 or iPhone Air is not yet confirmed. According the latest rumour on WeChat, iPhone 5s will be priced down in May to $100, if this is the case then the new iPhone could be released concurrently and would still be priced at $199 with a 2 year contract.
