Preview screen iPhone 5: 4-inch, 16:9 and In-Cell panels

One of the most obvious physical changes and important for the rumored iPhone 5 is the larger screen of 4 inches with a 16:9 aspect ratio and use of In-Cell panels. While the iPhone 4, 2010 Apple doubled the pixel density of the screen of 320 × 480 to 640 × 960, the physical size and the 3:2 aspect ratio is maintained. If the iPhone 5 is presented on September 12 with a larger screen and a resolution of 640 × 1136, we believe that it will, for the first time Apple has changed the physical size and the aspect ratio of the iPhone screen.

Probably motivated by the desire to differentiate itself from Apple and its iPhone, and the need to adapt the battery and put a much bigger to feed the LTE chip, Apple's competitors began releasing phones with screens 3.8, 4, 4.3, 4.5 and 4.8 inches, and even more. Some are giants compared to the traditional 3.5-inch iPhone.

But there are many people who prefer the larger screens. So there was a dilemma in the future buyer: iPhone with 3.5-inch screen or a non-iPhone with bigger screen? And while record numbers of people were choosing the iPhone, many (if not most) began to choose the largest screen terminals. When going to a 4-inch screen, Apple could recover some of those people who bought the non-iPhone instead of the iPhone just because it had a bigger screen. And considering how it seems that Apple has implemented 4 inches, growing the total size of the iPhone very little about the iPhone 4S, which Apple will not lose customers who prefer a smaller phone. Gets Apple best of both worlds.

At the same time, Apple has continually worked to simplify its hardware, to eliminate visual clutter and to make their devices as free of distractions as possible. Only you, your desktop and your applications. A larger screen, with the top and bottom with less frame, also meets this goal.

It might be more interesting to know the reason why Apple has decided to move to a 16:9 aspect ratio. Apple could have simply scaling the current 3.5-inch screen resolution 640 × 960 to 4 inches. But current density would have dropped from 326 dpi to 288 dpi, which could have meant an ultimatum to the Retina display. Apple could have increased the pixels both horizontally and vertically.

But Apple has decided to keep pixel density at 326 pp with a width of 640px and 1136px height increasing. That allows them to keep the iPhone 5 have the same width as the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, and simply increase the height. Instead of increasing the height of the device in the same extent as the height of the screen, have been removed from the upper and lower cover. So we have a bigger screen of 4 inches, in a phone that is no wider and only slightly higher than the iPhone 4. We will have a bigger screen on a device that will remain in your pocket, and for many, it is still easy to use with one hand.

To make the iPhone 5 has a thinner screen, Apple has used the technology of In-Cell panels . This allows Apple to implement the touch sensor on the LCD screen, making what were two layers in a single layer 0.5 mm thinner. 0.5 mm may not sound like much, but I tend note that the iPhone 4S has a thickness of 9.3 mm, this data becomes very important.

What it means for current applications is another story. Apple applications will surely be properly updated in time for the event. The home screen will have an extra row of icons. Mail a message more than today. In the contacts will see a person currently. The maps show more area. The camera shows a panoramic view. The video is set to the 16:9 aspect ratio using almost all movies or TV shows.

Some interface elements from iOS 5 will not display correctly in landscape, but Apple is changing this, so should improve for all devices. Even the keyboard in landscape mode is likely to change in size and more spacing.

And what about other applications?

For third-party applications from the App Store, all compiled with iOS SDK 5, is likely to see black bars to fill the extra 176 pixels of the new screen, at least until the developers update their applications. So, for now, we assume that the iPhone 5 will look the same as it does today in the iPhone 4S.

To update to iOS applications 6, which we assume will be presented along with the iPhone 5, the UITableView based applications or UICollectView could add an additional list or row in the grid to be compatible. The design applications AutoLayout may take a relative position, regardless of whether the display is 16:9 or 3:2. Games that use OpenGL could fill the right amount of the screen on any device, but it would have to adjust the interface elements. The applications and games that are specifically placed items somewhere in the interface will have to be redone in a way that enables them to properly fill the screen regardless of the screen you have to fill.

If iOS version 6 goes Gold Master on September 12, as has already happened in the past, some developers might be fast enough to update and make your applications are ready for the expected September 21 release date theoretical iPhone 5.

We leave you a video showing how MacRumors might work:

The conclusion is that the iPhone 5 does not really have a bigger screen, has more screen, and that's an important difference. We will not receive large pixels or higher content, receive more pixels and more content.

Will you follow the keynote with us? We hope so!
