5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 to come with landscape interface

5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 to come with landscape interface
You’ve already heard all about it: Apple is said to unveil not one, but two new smartphones this year, and both of them are expected to be larger than the current 4-inch iPhone 5s. One of them, however, is to be even bigger than most smartphones today and will easily qualify as a ‘phablet’.

We’re talking about the rumored 5.5-inch iPhone, a device that we’ve earlier heard could feature a special one-handed operation mode because of its large size. The newest rumor, however, gives this 5.5” iPhone some iPad-like capabilities - screen rotation.

The option will allegedly only be present on the larger 5.5” iPhone, but not on the 4.7-inch model. It will allow users to get more usage out of that big screen, and will feature specially optimized apps (in a way similar to how the iPad has tailor-made applications) with a two-panel view. This would allow fitting more functionality and information on the display.

Right below are claimed simulated images of what such an interface could look like. Android users will of course be quick to point out that this is a standard option in some gadgets running on Google’s operating system, but let’s wait and see whether Apple really implements this and how it does that.
