Apple is reportedly developing a thinner iPhone model by the name of “Slim” iPhone as part of the iPhone 17 lineup in 2025.

Positioned between the 6.1-inch and 6.9-inch screens of the current iPhone 16 lineup, the new high-end model is rumoured to boast a 6.6-inch display, according to Business Standard.

The display size could be 6.55 inches, suggested analyst Ross Young.

Apple is considering several design elements for the “Slim” iPhone, as per information sources’ indication, including an aluminium frame, a smaller front-facing camera cutout and a centralised rear camera arrangement.

With a smaller Dynamic Island for the iPhone 17 models, analyst Jeff Pu earlier predicted a refreshed design. Moreover, an energy density upgrade for the iPhone 16 Pro Max, was also suggested by supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. This could pave the way for a stainless steel battery case design in all 2025 models.

If Apple launches this "Slim" iPhone, it is likely to be priced even more than the recent iPhone Pro Max, indicating its premium status.
