Well, not metal exactly. It would be a substance called 'liquidmetal', and comes from a company called Liquidmetal Technologies. It has been confirmed that their substance will now be used to make Apple products from now on. This includes iPhones, iPads, and iPods. As you know, these items are typically made out of glass -- very fragile, very breakable glass. This has led to many people buying protective cases for their items, and, of course, becoming super crazy paranoid about dropping their items.
But with your precious phone or tablet or iPod being made out of liquidmetal, you won't need to worry about shattering your screen in the blink of an eye. This is because, while liquidmetal still retains the pretty shine and feel of glass, it still works like metal! I'm looking forward to how these products are going to look, especially after seeing this digital concept of what an iPhone could look like:
