Although iPhone shipments are expected to drop in the first quarter of 2016, Catcher's revenue from non Apple-clients (40%) will continue to grow.
Interestingly, the report claims that the upcoming iPhone will be waterproof and "use new compound materials to hide the antenna." Catcher is expected to supply the chassis for 30-35% of the new iPhone's shipments.
We've seen hints that Apple is making efforts to improve the iPhone's waterproofness with the iPhone 6s. Modifications to the iPhone 6s improved its water resistance over the iPhone 6 and stress tests revealed that the iPhone 6s can survive an hour under a small amount but unfortunately dropping it in a pool will still damage the device.
The prediction that Apple has found a way to hide the antenna bands is of note. When the iPhone 6 was first unveiled many users described the bands as 'ugly' but customers have gotten used to them for the most part.
Would either of these improvements make you rush out to get Apple's next generation device? Let us know what you think in the comments.
