What Widescreen Apps On The iPhone 5 Look Like [iPhone 5 Event]



Apple just lifted the curtain on the iPhone 5, it’s most groundbreaking iPhone yet. The device features a 4-inch Retina display with 1136 x 640 screen resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. To show off the new display, Apple’s Phil Schiller demonstrated what widescreen iOS apps look like on the device.

Not only will the iOS Home screen feature 5 rows of icons instead of the traditional 4, but all of Apple’s own apps will be updated to make use of the iPhone 5’s new screen real estate. Games and other kinds of apps also look great on the display, and the aspect ratio allows for truer widescreen video.
