An iPhone in style

Imagining an iPhone 4.5 or 5 inches

In 2012 Apple increased the screen size of the iPhone from 3.5 to 4 inches, and a month later launched the iPad Mini with 7.9 inches instead of the usual 9.7. Between the iPhone 4-4S and iPhone 5, and between the iPad and the iPad Mini, is a pretty remarkable difference, but so far, no news about the possibility of an iPhone 5S 4.5 or 5 inches. At the least for now.

For many customers it is not practical a screen of this size. For many, Apple has kept the screen size where they wanted, with a higher screen but narrow enough to use with one hand (in most cases). Thin enough to fit perfectly in smaller hands in pockets or purses. Enough to continue arguing that larger screens still have the same problems that Apple has always criticized.

For other clients, just 4 inches are not enough. For some, the size simplifies sales. Imagine that you go into a store where televisions have exposed all models, from 32 up to 102 inches. Imagine that the 102-inch TV cost the same or even less than 32 inches. This is the situation of the iPhone. Customers come into the store operators and see the iPhone to $ 199, and another terminal of 4.5-5 inches Android or Windows. Normally associate that bigger is better, so they buy the biggest.

In other respects the size also matters. Our eyes require large elements in the interface easy to use, our motor skills appreciate that we have more room to move, or just may want a larger screen for watching videos larger play great games or even may desire to lead a mini tablet in his pocket.

Therefore, although many people prefer an iPhone in many ways, the size of the screen is what you see, what is more important to them than anything else. And so, none of these customers will choose the iPhone.

We already know that Apple is not geared to a client whose main concern is the price, as an example we have the MacBooks and the iPad. Currently no worry of customers for whom the screen size is the most important, regardless nothing more. Overall, Apple has shown resilience to market trends and achieved a small core that is attached to the high quality of its products.

Despite all this, Apple launched this year a 4-inch iPhone. And have also launched an iPad Mini 7.9 inch after market introduction of several 7-inch tablet. So Apple is not completely immune to market trends. For now Apple is focused on continuing to show that a larger screen is not comfortable for everyday use.

If Apple finally decided to release several versions of its iOS devices next year, and change your renewal cycle to include two updates per year instead of one, will be interesting to see how advance hardware devices. How much faster can it be? How best can the cameras? How can they improve the battery life? What feature would differentiate these products? Maybe the screen size is the answer. Maybe see an iPhone 6 to 5 inches.

An iPhone with a nearby screen at 5 inches and resolution 1136 x 640, might have the same pixel density than the iPad Retina, 264 dpi. If you stay at 4.5 inches, would have a resolution of 1136 x 640 with a density of 290 ppi, halfway between the iPad 264 dpi and 326 dpi of the current iPhone. Having the same resolution means that applications work perfectly without any modification.

Another possibility is that Apple keep the pixel density as a priority and also increase the resolution of the current 1136 x 640 at a resolution of 1704 x 960, with 435 dpi and 391 dpi for the model of 4.5 inches and 5 inches respectively , or a resolution of 2272 x 1280, 580 dpi and 522 dpi for 4.5 and 5 inches respectively. This would make all developers have to modify your applications again, as happened with the change of the iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4. (By way of comparison, the DNA Droid has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 with 5-inch and a density of 440 dpi).

Apple and Mac has multiple sizes, multiple iPod sizes and even the iPad, so it is not unusual to imagine that one day I can have multiple sizes of iPhone beyond the current 3.5 to 4 inches.

With Apple you can never say never. They are intelligent, are changing and, if one day choose to go big, do something with the build quality, lightness and thinness of the iPhone 5, but larger than, is something that many people will buy.
