We all know by now that the iPhone 5 has a larger display than any of it predecessors. The new 4″ Retina hosts 1136 pixels vertically versus 640 pixels horizontally (in portrait mode). With more real estate came the opportunity not only to view full widescreen 16:9 images, apps and video, but also enable to keep clutter to a minimum.
Ever since iOS 4 was launched, we’ve been able to drag and drop apps on top of each other to create folders full of programs, and save space on our home screens. On the iPhone, the maximum number of apps in a Folder – up until now – was 12. On the iPhone 5 you can fit in an extra row of apps within the Folder, enabling you to fit in even more apps on each home screen, and decrease the number of home screens needed. Pretty neat.
