The iPhone 11 was only just released — and to rave reviews — but there's already buzz about what's coming in 2020. In addition to features like 5G support and an in-display fingerprint sensor, Apple's upcoming iPhone will supposedly feature a brand new design — and people are hyped.

According to a recent report, the 2020 iPhone could feature a design similar to the iPhone 4. In other words, the phone's metal frame will feature flat edges, rather than the rounded look that's been present in the iPhone for the last several years.

Based on early feedback on social media, a more modern iPhone 4 is just what the doctor ordered. One iPhone 11 owner joked that he was ready to throw his device in the trash if the rumor turns out to be true.

That sentiment appears to be shared by a lot of longtime Apple fans who have fond memories of the iPhone 4, which featured an exposed metal frame sandwiched by glass. Apple brought back a similar design when it introduced the iPad Pro in 2018.

While the 2020 iPhone is rumored to feature a design similar to the iPhone 4, it's said to still feature curved glass. Combine that with the iPhone 11's stronger glass and matte look, and we should expect something more modern and sophisticated than even the iPad Pro.

Apple's current iPhone design has been around since 2017 when the iPhone X was first introduced. While the design still looks gorgeous, people are anxious to try something new.

Clearly, Apple fans are excited by the prospect of what's in Apple's (rumored) future.

  • Not me. Was a lovely device to look at but awful to hold for a long period.
  • agreed. Apple has lost it's way. Jony's designs were getting stale so they got rid of him. Now, all they can do is go, hey...lets make a phone we already made years ago. NO VISION.
  • Jony only left a few months ago, it's going to take time for new designs to come in
  • Yup. Get rid of the curved screen corners and we have ourselves the best design ever.
  • Iphone 4 and 5 was the best design yet. I'm miss Steve/John times.
