Apple might stop making the iPhone Plus model next year and introduce a new, higher-end model called the “iPhone Slim” in 2025. According to a report by 9To5Mac, based on information from The Information, this new model will have a completely new design and a thinner body.

The iPhone X, released in 2017, was a major redesign for Apple. It got rid of the home button, introduced FaceID, and featured OLED displays with thinner edges. The upcoming iPhone Slim is expected to continue this trend of innovation. It will have a screen size between the 6.1-inch standard iPhone and the 6.69-inch Pro Max, and it will feature a smaller dynamic island at the top of the screen. Additionally, the iPhone Slim will have an aluminium body and a centrally placed rear camera.

The report also mentions that the iPhone Slim will be much thinner than current iPhones and will likely replace the iPhone Plus model after the release of the iPhone 16 in 2024. However, this new model might be more expensive than the Pro Max. Apple is still testing different designs, so the final look of the iPhone Slim is not decided yet. It might even be called the “iPhone Ultra.”

In other news, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo posted on Medium that the upcoming iPhone 16 will feature a stainless steel battery case for the first time. Unlike aluminium, stainless steel doesn’t dissipate heat as well, but it makes the phone more rigid and protects the battery better. This new battery design will also make it easier to remove the battery, helping Apple meet new European Union rules for smartphone repairability.
