Developers of iOS apps are convinced that a larger screen won’t cause problems in the process of development with the launch of the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5 is rumored to have a 4-inch screen with a 1152×640 pixel resolution. In this case, developers of iOS apps should restore some of the graphics of their own applications in order for them to be run without problems.
Developers are confident that Apple will find the method to allow everyone to run the old apps on the new iPhone, if a new resolution will appear for the launch of the iPhone 5.
A publication from Taipei claims that Sony was chosen by Apple to produce displays using in-cell technology. This isn’t the first time reports about this technology are in the news. Last month the possible implementation of a new type of screen was brought into question. If this technology will be implemented in the iPhone 5, we have thin screens that could contribute to a reduction in size of the iPhone.
Information about a possible launch of an iPhone with a screen measuring 3.999 inches diagonally and a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels comes from 9to5mac.
The site reports that this device is currently being tested by Apple and the company is also rumored to be have two handsets in N41AP (5.1) and N42AP (5.2 tests). Also, Apple plans to implement a new USB connector that would have an intermediate size between Micro and Mini USB.
Following rumors of an iPhone launch with a 3.95-inch screen, we already have a concept of such an iPhone.
