iPhone 6 Might Feature A Bezel-Free Display [Rumor]



The Rumor: Xcode 6 hints that bigger iPhones are coming out soon thanks to its resizable iOS simulator tool.

The Verdict: It's only a matter of time. Apple rarely tells developers when a new product is coming out, but there's usually clues hiding out in new software dished to WWDC attendees every year. At this point, we're probably only 2-3 months away from the big iPhone 6 announcement. I wonder what other clues will be discovered before then.

The iPhone 6 is still many months away from launching but the rumor mill has sprayed a steady stream of rumors about Apple’s next handset, with the latest claiming Apple will ditch the iPhone’s bezel for an edge-to-edge display.

Citing an industry source, The Korea Herald reports Apple is testing a prototype iPhone 6 that sports a bezel-less screen that features a fingerprint scanner.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard whispers that Apple will use an bezel-free display to increase screen size while making minimal impact on the device’s footprint, but the Herald also says Samsung plans to add a bezel-free display to the Galaxy S5 as well.

Samsung plans to add a fingerprint scanner to the bottom area of its bezel-free display, but the report is unclear as to whether the iPhone 6 will have a similar feature or the Touch ID scanner introduced with the 5s.

Other rumors have suggested Apple will release two iPhones this year with bigger displays, a supercharged camera, and maybe even a solar-powered sapphire crystal display, but if it looks something like this we’ll be drooling up, down, and all-around it on launch day.
