Earlier it was revealed that Apple’s iOS 6 was fully capable of running on taller iPhone displays, namely at 1136×640 resolution. An image depicting how the iPhone 5’s screen will look like with applications has now emerged.
Over at 9to5mac, iOS specialist Sonny Dickson decided to create screenshots of what native applications might look like on the iPhone 5 using an iOS 6 simulator. After installing the applications he found that the apps already included and optimized for iOS 6 appear to have optimized their interfaces to fit the taller display.
Particularly, the home screen application folder automatically scales up to include 16 apps over the current 12. Other apps that were installed over from the iOS 5 simulator displayed with black bars on the top and bottom as can be seen on the calculator image. It is unknown if this is a result of the simulator tweaking or if this is Apple’s plan for non-optimized apps.
