Last week, Joshua Topolsky of This is my next, published some new iPhone 5 rumors that they had heard. Of course there’s been a huge number of rumors going around lately, but these new ones were totally different from what we had heard previously.
The post described a radically redesigned handset that features a “teardrop” profile not unlike the MacBook Air. It also mentions an enlarged home button that would double as a gesture area, an edge-to-edge screen, and the possibility of inductive charging. The internet was immediately up in arms, denying that there could be any truth behind the post, but once you step back and look at Apple’s other work, it’s really not that far-fetched.
