9to5 Mac features a new rumour today from Korea’s ETNews.com that says that Apple is planning to use “liquid metal” technology in order to produce a thinner and lighter iPhone. Lending a degree of credibility to the initial report is the fact that Apple bought the rights to amorphous metal alloys technology from Liquidmetal Technologies back in August 2010, so it’s reasonable to expect that Apple will be doing something with that technology at some point, even if it's not right away. However, ETNews also says that Apple will be launching the new, liquidmetal iPhone 5 at its WWDC in June, which goes against recent reports that Apple intends to maintain its current iPhone release schedule and will not release another iPhone until the Fall. It’s quite possible that this is just another plumped out rumour, but always worth giving it an airing just in case it does prove to be true! Take with the usual bucket of salt, of course!
