“Back in mid-May, we reported that the next-generation iPhone would feature a taller display that comes in at 3.999 inches [diagonal] with a resolution of 640 x 1136,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac. “At this resolution, Apple would be keeping the horizontal length of the iPhone display, and only increasing the height.”
“These next-generation iPhones with taller displays feature a home screen that scales to five rows of icons, according to sources,” Gurman reports. “The current 3.5-inch iPhone displays feature four rows of icons. The user-interfaces of Apple’s included applications were also said to be tweaked to take advantage of the taller screen area.”
Gurman reports, “Today, we have found more proof that Apple is at least testing next-generation iPhone displays that are taller. In fact, iOS 6 is completely scaleable to a taller display.”
