What iOS 6 running on elongated next-gen iPhone will look like

“According to pre-WWDC scuttlebutt, iOS 6 won’t be a huge departure from what we’ve got now, at least when it comes to stand out system features,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac. “What we will see, however, is a total revision of Apple’s core apps, most noticeable in Apple’s totally overhauled, Google-free Maps app, along with a sexy new silver UI.”

Brownlee reports, “What will it all look like in action, though, on the new, possibly elongated iPhone 5, when it ships in September or October? Over on the Apple Core forums, user gizmosachin created some nice mockups of what all the pieces will look like when glued together.”

  1. My guess for the usage of the 176 extra pixels, IF the rumours about the 4″ screen are correct, is that it will NOT just be used for another row of boring app icons (I love my iPhone, don’t get me wrong), but for global widgets that stay right there even if flipping through app home screens. That would be awesome and much better than the Android approach.

    iCal me. You have heard it here first.

        1. I stated previously that: “I’m guessing they’re adding functionality/accessibility to iOS 6 where the .45″ of extra screen real estate is at. Previous iPhones won’t have this, making an incentive for upgrades.”

          (so bite me lol)

  2. “John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.”

    That should be “conjectures”. Not “reports”.

    Even worse than “journalists” “reporting” stuff that never happened, is that it has become acceptable. Shudder.

  3. I don’t know why it has to be longer there is enough space to do 4in with same size iPhone as now.
    They better do 4in they are behind I hate that all the droids have 4in to 5in and it’s time to get with the program
