Simulated Screenshots Hint At Bigger Screen For iPhone 5

It appears that new images have given more credence to earlier reports that the soon-to-be-released iPhone 5 will come with a bigger screen display.

A blog focused on Apple devices, 9to5Mac, reportedly discovered simulated screenshots of an iPhone that shows an extra row of icons, bringing the total number of rows to five rather than the typical four rows. This has added to the authenticity of earlier reports on a bigger screen display for the next iPhone, which is widely considered to be the iPhone 5.

Anonymous sources have reportedly informed the blog that testing for a taller display setting was already being implemented by Apple.  A number of developmental tools on the iOS 6 were used by the blog in simulating a screen resolution of 640 by 1136. This resulted to five icon rows instead of the typical four rows shown on the existing iOS.

The blog indicated that the five icon rows will not be displayed correctly using the simulator whenever a different resolution is used. The icons would be resized to the size used on the iPad if a different resolution was used.

A number of reports emerged last year that hinted of a four-inch screen display for the upcoming iPhone 5. The bigger screen display would definitely be quite appealing for potential users of the iPhone 5 even as a number of Android-powered devices are already using bigger screen displays.

Numerous reports and leaks have emerged recent months on the upcoming release of the iPhone 5 even as the existence of the device was not yet officially confirmed by Apple.

In addition to the iPhone 5, Apple will reportedly release the iPad Mini in an event that is scheduled to be held next month.
