iPhone 5: 4-inch screen, miniconnector and 7.6 mm thick

The release of beta 4 iOS 6 confirms the rumors: iPhone 5 will have a good 4-inch screen and a 9-pin miniconnector.

Over the presentation of the new iPhone comes close – September 12, 2012 – more information coming to filter. After the first pictures of the serious case, now the site Taiwan Apple Daily published a photograph of the close down of the iPhone 5 compared to that of the iPhone 4S.

It confirms the picture that we have already published iPhone 5 has a headphone jack at the bottom of the unit instead of being positioned on top, which is not practical when you have this phone in a pocket or bag. Second lesson: the iPhone 5 will be thinner, with 7.6 mm against 9.4 mm for the iPhone 4 and 4S. It will be thinner than the Galaxy SIII (8.6 mm thick). Thirdly, iPhone 5 will have a miniconnector. The question is what will be its size.

Beta 4 of 6 confirms iOS miniconnectot a 9-pin

In this regard, the source code for beta 4 to 6 IOS, which has just been published, gives a rather explicit index denoted by the site 9to5Mac : “00002d9ct_copyDeviceSupports9Pin”. It would therefore have 9 pins instead of 19.

This changes nothing for users. Since the inception of the iPhone, the connector has 30 pins. This new situation will force millions of users of mobile Apple to buy an adapter to connect the new device to their current devices. If it is a revolution, it has a bitter taste.

With this emulator in the SDK of the sixth version of the operating system, a developer has entered a 640 x 1136 points corresponding to a screen of four inches diagonally. And the emulator worked, showing five rows of icons instead of four in iOS 5.1, present in the iPhone 4 and 4S.

The iPhone screen would therefore four 5-inch 640 x 1136 dots against a 3.5-inch display with 640 x 960 points for the iPhone 4 and 4S QED.

The user can also specify which services (icloud Documents, FaceTime, iTunes, Passbook …) will have the right to use the 3G data connection.

This was all regarding the upcoming iPhone 5, its dimensions, display and its features, stay tuned for more updates.
