New iPhone prototypes have larger screens than previous generation iPhones
Will the new iPhone have a larger screen? Prototypes being tested have a 3.999 inch screen (rectangular dimensions are 1.9632 x 3.484 inches), but it goes farther than that: Apple is not extending just the display size, but also the resolution. Instead of a 640x960 resolution, the prototypes have a 640x1136 resolution; this is much almost a 16:9 ratio, meaning widescreen videos will not have "black bars" and will fill the entire screen without any cropping. The larger resolution also means that it is likely that in iOS 6 could be a fifth row of icons above the dock. The home button will remain, but so far it seems that the prototypes have a new dock connector incompatible with previous Apple mobile devices.
