iPhone 5 rumors: 4-inch iPhone wouldn’t pose problems to developers

Rumors of an iPhone 5 sporting a 4-inch screen and a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels have been buzzing around lately.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster interviewed 100 developers at WWDC 2012 about the difficulties of creating new apps for two new screen sizes, namely the iPhone 5 and the rumored iPad mini.

Comparing the rumored 1136 x 640 pixels resolution for the iPhone5 to the current 960 x 640 on the iPhone 4/4S, we can see that there would be a significant change and the images below show how apps would be affected by it.

Despite the belief that developers will have difficulties updating their apps to fit the new screen size, Munster’s study shows that developers are not so worried about the change and updating the applications for the new resolution won’t prove so difficult.

“Given the relative ease expected by developers for utilizing potential new iOS screen sizes, we believe the introduction of new screen sizes would not affect the success or availability of the apps on iOS,” Munster said.

The iPhone 5 is expected to sport a larger, 4-inch display with 16-to-9 ratio that would maintain single-hand operability despite the increase in the size of the screen.

An iPad mini with a 7.85-inch display and a 1,024-by-768-pixel display has long been rumored to be scheduled for a fall release.
