Thanks to a little tinkering with the iOS simulator bundled with the iOS development tools, 9to5Mac was able to come up with this â€“ a snapshot of what iOS 6 could very well look like on the next iPhone if it indeed rocked a larger display.
The resolution of this is 640×1136, larger than the 960×640 resolution on the current iPhone, supporting rumors that the iPhone 5 will boast of a longer near 4-inch display, a first, if ever, for the Appleâ€™s mobile phone line. Result, you now get to enjoy 5 rows of apps, instead of just 4.
Convincing as this is, we wonâ€™t, however, put too much into this except the obvious â€“ iOS 6 supports a new resolution apart from the ones weâ€™ve grown accustomed with.
This is not, by any means, a confirmation that the new iPhone will sport a bigger display. This is good evidence to support the rumor, but for now, it’ll remain just that, only evidence.
Anyway, September’s just a couple of weeks away. If the September iPhone launch rumor proves to be true, then we won’t have to wait that long to find out whether the iPhone will stick to or break tradition.
