Steve Jobs Worked on iPhone 5 Design – Changed his Mind about Large Phones
The design, according to the interweblogosphere, for iPhone 5 hasn’t yet been decided but word out there is that Steve Jobs himself was working on the next gen smartphone’s form.
It’s more-or-less agreed that the next iPhone will have a larger screen than its current 3.5-inch form factor but there’s little hope that it will be the 4.6-inch monster of rumour.
Jobs famously criticised the move to larger form factors, opining that “no one’s going to buy” a big phone.
According to Bloomberg Steve Jobs, “had worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October.”
This means that the move from the 3.5-inch display, which the iPhone has kept over the last five versions, in favour of a 4-inch screen could well have been down to iSteve rethinking his design plans for iPhone 5.
