Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, has hinted that the iPhone 5 will not have a 4-inch screen. When he was speaking at the D:10 conference, he said:
“One thing is that we’re not fragmented. Look at the percentage of users who upgraded to iOS 5. We have one App Store. We have one phone with one screen size, one resolution. So it’s pretty simple if you’re a developer.”
This statement confirmed that the iPhone 5 will not have a bigger screen and that truly was only a rumor.
