    You hit it on the nail right there. But there was this one curious case where Apple went back to plastic for the 5C, so I wouldn't count out anything at this point.

    But I highly doubt they would abandon their now quite successful aluminum 'concoctions' so far.
    5c wasn't really a step backwards. It's still a unibody construction that evolved from the iPhone 5 metal case. There is also a steel skeleton underneath. That's pretty much a forward-facing design.

    I agree that it's highly unlikely that Apple would return to a glass back. It just doesn't make sense. It worked for when Apple wanted to ditch plastic but wasn't ready to offer a compelling aluminum substitute. For me it felt like a transitional design choice. And Apple feels right at home with aluminum.

    Sorry for replying late to this, but I think having glass on both sides would be bad, just because they crack easily...

    I would want to see a safer and yet more premium aluminium on the back, and they proved they can do it with snazzy colors like Gold. To me, if it is a success why stop doing it? Keep coming up with these sexy aluminium backs, Apple.
    If you used an aluminum phone during a Canadian winter you will want a phone with the glass back of the 4/4S. My 5S feels cold when I use it to make a phone call in the car compared to my 4S.

    I hope its not glass front and back again, I remember dropping that bad boy when I was changing my music one day. Didn't even need to look at the back to know it was smashed to bits, one little slip out of the hand was all it took and it didn't matter if it landed on the front or the back it was going to smash.
