The new iPhone 5 will have a larger screen than any other iPhone and it seems that this is all but confirmed with reports by leaked iPhone parts. However recently it was found that iOS 6 is scalable and it fits a display of 1136 x 640, hence further confirming the taller screen rumors.

9to5mac conducted some tests with iOS 5.1 and iOS 6. The 5.1 showed the home screen with four rows of icons stretched out, while iOS 6 had five complete rows of icons. This is proof that the release of iOS 6 which should come preloaded onto the new iPhone 5 will support the taller resolution and 5-row dock.

9to5mac was the first to say that Apple was indeed testing the iPhone 5 with a larger display of 3.95 inches at 640 x 1136 resolutions back in May. This means that the handset will be taller, with the phone being the same width as models out now. The new iPhone 5 is also rumored to have a new design and faster processor and it should have LTE compatibility.

It is thought that Apple is getting ready to reveal their new device at a media event which takes place of 12th September. As for the official release date, the same rumors suggest 21st September. We’ll keep you posted more develops.
