Apple iPhone 6 dummy invades all media, now it stars in a new video43
It seems like decades ago when the OG Apple iPhone launched with its 3.5 inch glass. At the time, it was considered a "generous" sized screen. Apple kept the same screen size even when Android models started passing the 4 inch bar. At Cupertino, the thought was that a 3.5 inch screen was perfect for one-handed use, giving the thumb coverage over most of the screen.
Finally, the Apple iPhone 5 took the screen on the device to 4 inches. But it obviously was not enough to satisfy everyone. Top-shelf Android handsets now exceed 5 inches regularly. To take on those Android, and even Windows Phone behemoths, the next iteration of the iPhone is supposedly taking the screen size to 4.7 inches. And we could then see a 5.5 inch screen on an Apple iPhone phablet. We wonder if Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is spinning in his grave, as he was a strong proponent of the 3.5 inch screen.
