More iPhone Display Rumors: Apple Will Stick With 3.5-Inch Display
Another day another rumor from an industry insider saying the exact opposite of a rumor from another industry insider the day before.
Today, the rumor from iMore’s source claims Apple is scheduled to release a new 3.5” LTE iPhone in October. This contrary to reports yesterday that Apple was planning to release a larger screened iPhone with a display somewhere in the 4” category as early as this summer. This new rumor differs not only in the release window, and screen size, but also claims Apple is changing the dock connector. The new connections will be a “micro dock.”
Changing the screen size in one way or another might happen, but the possibility of the next iPhone sporting a 3.5” screen is greater than Apple upping the size of 4.6”. Apple doesn’t like to sacrifice battery life for aesthetics, and upping the resolution and screen size along with adding 4G LTE capabilities means some serious battery jujitsu would need to take place in order for the iPhone to maintain its current battery life (8 hours talk time on 3G, 10 hours of video playback, 6 hours surfing web on 3G, and 9 hours over Wi-Fi).
Screen size aside, Apple does need to bring something new to the design table with the next iPhone. Even if they stop numbering the device releases, the company will need to give something to consumers so they can distinguish between old and new. Cause we’re all that egotistical when it comes to gadgets.

They need to:
1) Up the screen size;
2) Make serious changes to the graphical UI (icon redesigns, like the Clock, Calendar and Photos - they look thrown together; no more gloss, etc);
3) Flashing indicator of missed notifications
There's tons more but the first two should definitely happen...

If the next iPhone doesn't have a larger screen, I might have to consider a Samsung.

The iPhone's screen is good the way it is IMO. I hate those phones that are so large that they dont even fit in your pocketsIf my post was good, click the button in my post
New to jailbreaking? Have a look at my Redsn0w Guide

Rumors are retarded all they are are people that guess on what it will be on earlier predictions. These people's rumors are just rumors they can't back up any of it. They just have more valued opinions because they guessed once and got it right. I mean is it seriously a rumor it's going to be lte? Anyone can predict that then get credit for the prediction even though it basically a fact. It's like if I say " apple will make the product quad core with an a6 processor". It's a no duh statement

If they would just use the entire front for the display it would be great. No need to increase iPhone case dimensions then.

Yeah. I'd like to see the iPhone maintain its current thin and small profile with a power- hogging 4G LTE chip, Siri, FaceTime, retina display and fancy camera tech inside it while keeping the same size battery. That should go well with maybe 4 hours of talk time and 100 hours of standby if you're lucky.
I don't see that working out to well. I just don't.
Guess ill just have to see how the Galaxy S3 turns out.

A 4.5inch or bigger screen is like watching a teenage boy driving his lifted chevy truck. Sure it looks cool, but the functionality and form factor is ruined.

How about we start a rumour that the next iPhone will have a 2.4" screen - if enough people say they really want it then it will counter the people asking for a larger screen and keep it the same as the vast majority of people actually want - ie 3.5"
If MMi continue to post every single rumour about the next iPhone one of them might actually prove to be right.
But I doubt it.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
