To say that Apple would be planning a 4 inch screen on the next-gen iPhone would not be anything new. People have been wanting a larger screen ever since the first 4 inch android phone was released. It’s always been nothing more than hopeful wishing up until this point, but that all might change with the next iPhone.
According to a story from The Wall Street Journal, Apple has ordered screens that are reportedly bigger than the 3.5 inch screens they are known for using. The Wall Street Journal wrote the following,
“Apple, which is expected to launch its next-generation iPhone later this year, has ordered screens from its Asian suppliers that are bigger than the ones used in iPhones since they debuted in 2007, people familiar with the situation said.Production is set to begin next month for the screens, which measure at least 4 inches diagonally compared with 3.5 inches on the iPhone 4S, the latest phone from Apple, the people said.”
At this point with Apple, it should go without saying that every rumor is just a rumor, until it is announced by Tim Cook himself at the iPhone Keynote. That being said, The Wall Street Journal has gotten it right multiple times in the past about new iPhone features before they launched.
Personally, I would love a 4 inch screen. I’m not sure why Apple hasn’t done this already, but I think it’s overdue. Many people, like myself, love the constantly updating iOS, but feel the screen size limits it. Apple could only make more money and more consumers happy if they increased the screen.
