Many people want this iPhone, but no one will get it

This iPhone looks so amazing and yet nobody will get it because Apple will probably never build it. It's a shame, but the reasons are actually plausible.

Nostalgia can make us happy in its beautiful form. How happy we are to think back to the "good old days" - of course, this also applies to our experience with technical products. Many Apple users think back to the iPhone 4 with a smile. For quite a few, it is still the most beautiful Apple cell phone ever built.

Apple has since found its way back to the angular shape of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, but this is not enough for real retro fans. Perhaps they would prefer a direct remake of the iPhone 4 based on the current state of the art.

First, let's take a look at the original from Apple:

IPhone 4 Rebirth: Just WOW!

What such a reborn iPhone 4 could look like is now demonstrated by the makers behind Concept Creator in collaboration with the Dutch website "LetsGoDigital". You have to look twice to discover the differences to the original from 2010. Also because the dimensions should be more or less identical - damn compact, even more than the iPhone 12 mini. or its current successor.


About the differences . First there is the display. The smaller 3.5-inch screen has to give way. Instead, the entire front surface is now covered by a format-filling display . Touch ID (fingerprint sensor) and the front camera are hidden under the screen . This is no longer science fiction, because both technologies already exist and are being sold. In-display fingerprint sensors are already part of the good game on many Android smartphones and the ZTE Axon 20 hides the selfie camera under the display - so everything is fine.

Needless to say, this reborn iPhone 4 has a Lightning connector instead of the original's 30-pin connector. The rear camera also increases in performance, but it remains with a single lens - due to the clear design.

Unfortunately, unfortunately: just a concept

Wouldn't it be great if Apple adopted this retro phone suggestion right away, wouldn't it? But that will not happen, not only because there is no more space in Apple's plans for the next two years. The reasons are much more obvious:

With the iPhone 13 mini , Apple already has a cell phone on offer, which perfectly closes the gap of a compact smartphone. As previous sales figures show, such compact smartphones are, contrary to expectations, not so popular with iPhone customers . The possible sales figures would remain manageable and do not justify such an experiment. It is and remains just a concept , a wishful thinking. Apple has never allowed itself to be misled by this.

In short: Apple will not and does not have to dare. The reborn iPhone 4 will remain a fantasy well into the future. But hey, we still have fond memories of the original.
