On Rumors of the iPhone getting a bigger screen

Posted on March 22, 2012

I agree with John Gruber:

Reuters:

Apple Inc’s new iPhone will have a sharper and bigger 4.6-inch “retina” display and is set to be launched around the second quarter, a South Korean media reported on Thursday.

Lots of attention on this rumor, but no one seems to be pointing out that if it’s true, this new iPhone would need way more pixels than the current 960 × 640 iPhone display. That means every app in the App Store would need to be redesigned/resized. For this reason and others, I say it’s bullshit.
