In the past couple of months, we’ve posted a lot of rumors claiming that Apple is working on a 4.7-inch display iPhone 6. Several mockups and schematics have been making rounds suggesting exactly what the rumors say, but only Apple can confirm a large screen iPhone 6 when Apple will formally unveil it later this year.
After so many mockups and cases related rumors, today we present you a video, shared by 9to5mac, which shows a dummy iPhone 6 simulating a version of iOS 7.1.1 modified for the 4.7-inch display. Just to give a closer look and feel of a 4.7-inch display iPhone 6, the video simply takes a 4.7-inch Moto X display, places it behind the bezels of an iPhone 6 dummy and them simulates an enlarged version of iOS.
I was curious to know exactly how iOS would be represented on a 4.7-inch display, so I decided to make an iPhone 6 simulator. This “simulator” takes the 4.7-inch Moto X and places it behind what is rumored to be the bezel for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6. It has been reported that most of the user-interface will be upscaled with the possibility of certain apps being revamped to take advantage of the extra space.
9to5mac notes that for a larger screen iPhone 6, some apps will simply get an enlarged interface, while others might see some UI changes to benefit from the larger real estate. iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display is rumored to come in a sharper 1704 x 960 resolution with 416 PPI density.
If Apple decides to go with 1704 x 960 resolution and an upscaled version of IOS for larger display, the video shows probably the closest possible demo of the real thing. You can watch the dummy iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display running an enlarged version of iOS.
Apple is rumored to launch iPhone 6 in two different screen sizes: a 4.7-inch model expected to launch in September, followed by a larger 5.5-inch model later this year. The next-generation iPhone will most probably be running iOS 8 – Apple’s upcoming major mobile firmware installment. The rumored iPhone 6 specs include an A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, NFC chip and an improved 8MP camera.
