Why iPhone 5 Will Not Have Larger Touch Screen Size As Compared To iPhone 4 Or Earlier iPhones

iPhone is no doubt the best smartphone in the world right now, not only because of its great OS and features but also because of the powerful ecosystem of developers around it, which makes iphone more fun to use with useful and worthy apps and they got their share in return.

Now, coming to the point I see some rumors floating on web about upcoming iphone 5 will have a new larger touch screen as compared to its previous iphone 4 and earlier iphone as per my thinking this rumor cannot be true. Currently iPhone 4 and earlier iphone have 3.5 inch size [diagonal] where as iphone 5 is projected to have a larger screen of 4 inch size [diagonal] as per the rumors.

Now, let me tell you Why iPhone 5 Will Not Have Larger Touch Screen Size As Compared To iPhone 4 Or Earlier iPhones

Firstly there are millions of apps on apple appstore which are designed as per the current screen resolution of iphone 4 and earlier screen size, so if the iphone 5 comes out with a larger screen all these apps will render improperly, and blurred – this was the only reason why iphone 4 was launched with the same screen resolution.

Another supporting reason was when ipad was launched, all the iphone apps ran on ipad with small size as they were getting blurred while running them in full screen resolution of ipad, to solve these issues there were apps designed specially for ipad now and this is reason why ipad apps is a separate section on itunes apps store.

So, as per my opinion all the news published of popular tech blogs like 9to5mac about iphone 5 will have larger screen is just rumor and it cannot be true, if you have a point please leave us a comment, we would love to talk more about it.
