Next iPhone Might Just Stick With 3.5-Inch Display, After All


A little earlier this week, we looked into reports that the next iPhone might see Apple go with a much larger display, moving things up into the 4.6-inch range. A change like that sounds a bit hard to swallow, and not everyone’s convinced it could be a possibility. The guys over at iMore, for one, have been hearing a different story from their sources about the next iPhone, which they summed-up this afternoon.

The most recent news they’ve heard from their sources indicates that Apple was still primarily looking at a 3.5-inch display for the next iPhone as of a month ago. Though they didn’t flat-out discount the possibility of a larger display, and note that Apple hadn’t yet internally committed to a size, staying at or close to 3.5 inches looked most likely.

Of course, they’ve been hearing “LTE” for the next iPhone, and honestly, it would be a surprise to see the phone arrive without it at this point. The only other feature their sources have been discussing for the model is a new, smaller dock, rather than the 30-pin connector we’re used to.

Presumably, we’ll get the official word on the next iPhone sometime this fall.
