Case designs and claimed leaked sketches are a less than wholly reliable method of predicting what the new iPhone 6 might look like, but we do seem to be hearing a fairly consistent story of a significantly slimmer handset with a rounded back. Very much like a larger iPod Touch, in fact.

Slimmer is likely to be welcomed, though there are those among us who’d prefer to stick to the existing thickness in return for greater battery-life, but with the iPhone expected to be available in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes, it’s likely that a larger battery will be possible even with a slimmer format … 


But rounded edges would represent a significant break with recent iPhone designs. Other rumored changes are the power button moved to the side, and thin, rounded-rectangular volume buttons.

Below are a few comparisons between the iPhone 5s and iPod Touch, taken from the recent Unbox Therapy video.

If an iPod Touch-like design is indeed what Apple has planned for the iPhone 6, has the company got it right? Take our poll, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
