iPhone 17 Lineup Rumored to Feature All-New Slim Model Above Pro Max With 'Major Redesign'

Apple is planning to launch an all-new iPhone 17 model next year with a "significantly thinner" design, according to The Information. The report says the device could have a higher price tag than the Pro Max model, which currently starts at $1,199, suggesting that the device would become the new highest-end model in the lineup.

The device will allegedly feature a "major redesign" akin to the iPhone X, and this could involve the rear cameras being relocated from the top-left corner of the device to the "top center," along with a narrower Dynamic Island. The device will have between a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display size, the report adds. Other potential features mentioned include an aluminum chassis, an A19 chip, and an improved front camera.

As part of this plan, the report says that Apple does not plan to release an iPhone 17 Plus next year, so the lineup would still consist of four models.

This is the third time that a slimmer iPhone 17 model has been rumored this month, following reports from Apple supply chain analyst Jeff Pu and display industry expert Ross Young, who said the device will have a 6.5-inch screen.

The report cautions that Apple is still testing multiple designs for this new iPhone, and potential delays could push the device's release beyond 2025.

Slim is nice, but we need something small please

And by small I mean "iPhone 13 Mini sized" (or smaller)

Apples product ranges are becoming more cluttered than the mess Steve had to sort out (the four quadrants) on his return.

Sounding more and more like the 16 will just be a 15s type release.

"Slimmer battery, emptier wallet, same great 'another record quarter...'. We think you'll love it!" ;)

Oh and we're only about 6-to-8 weeks from the "crucial part is in short supply" rumor to start stirring up some fear about being able to get one in our lifetimes... but then magically, they'll find a way to ship just about all anyone wants by Christmas anyway.
The entire schtick is so beyond tired

They are devoid of any imaginative or creative product leadership direction anymore.

They have no new good ideas
