Apple Rumored to Launch Redesigned “iPhone 17 Slim” in 2025

TL;DR: Apple is rumoured to launch redesigned “iPhone 17 Slim” in 2025 with new features and a higher price tag.

The Information reports that Apple is working on a major redesign for a new “Slim” iPhone, which could debut in 2025 as part of the iPhone 17 lineup. This model is expected to have a price tag even higher than the current most expensive iPhone Pro Max.

Rumored Features

According to 9to5Mac, analyst Jeff Pu suggests that the iPhone 17 models could feature:

  • A refreshed design with a smaller Dynamic Island
  • A 6.6-inch display, falling between the current 6.1-inch and 6.9-inch screens

Analyst Ross Young reports a slightly different display size of 6.55 inches.

Design Considerations

The Information‘s sources reveal that multiple designs are still being considered for the high-end model, including:

  • An aluminium frame
  • Smaller hole and cutout for front-facing camera hardware
  • Center-mounted rear cameras

Ming-Chi Kuo, a supply chain analyst, reports that the iPhone 16 Pro Max may feature a stainless steel battery case for improved energy density. If successful, this design could be adopted across all models in 2025.

Durability Expectations

Apple recently introduced the slim new iPad Pro, which has proven to be remarkably durable in YouTube’s toughest bend tests. Consumers will likely expect the same level of durability from a skinny iPhone when (or if) it launches.
