9To5Mac seems to have some pretty good sources inside Apple because they have quite a lot of detail about two iPhone 5 prototypes that are currently being tested at Apple. Both devices have a 4-inch screen. And as some earlier rumors have stated, the phone will be the same width but will be slightly taller, at 3.484 inches. The new display will have the same number of pixels across, but will add 176 pixels to the height, with a resolution of 640 x 1136 compared to the current 640 x 960.

What are the implications of iPhone with 4-inch screen? Developers say, Not a problem

image

Last week the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and Bloomberg all reported that the next iPhone will have a 4-inch screen. Of course, no one knows for sure, but lots of evidence is pointing that way. The main questions have been whether it would create problems for developers and also whether it would fragment the market. iMore had a lucid article about Apple's options for a larger screen and what it would mean. If, for example, a larger screen changes the aspect ratio, it means that apps would generally have to be rewritten — and that it would take a lot of work.

Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
