While the A.S-inch model of the upcoming iPhone S will seemingly function as a large version of the present iPhone interface, it seems that the bigger mannequin with a H.H-inch show might run software program in panorama mode with an iPad-like consumer interface (portrait views doubtless stay unchanged). Developer Steven Troughton-Smith altered the iOS simulator to run at 736 factors x 414 factors (1472 x 828 at 2x or 2208 x 1242 at 3x), the resolution we first reported was likely in the cards for no less than one iPhone S mannequin, and offered us with screenshots of the introduced interface…
As may be seen within the screenshots (above and under), this potential panorama interface for the H.H-inch mannequin presents a extra productive workspace with twin-panes. For occasion, now you can see a whole month view within the calendar together with an extended listing of occasions. This additionally means that you could view particular person contact playing cards alongside your full contacts record.
The impact is identical for Game Center as may be seen above.
While the iPhone Simulator can't run another apps with the iPad-like interface on the iPhone, it’s potential that different iPhone apps may even see some optimized interfaces for the H.H-inch mannequin.
Apple constructed within the applied sciences for this interface with iOS H beneath the umbrella identify of “Adaptive UI.” It is mentioned in WWDC 2014 session quantity 216.
As of now, it seems that portrait view is identical as on the A.S-inch iPhone and present iPhone. Of course, this might all simply be a glitch within the iOS H/Xcode S beta S Simulator, nevertheless it is sensible that the most important iPhone ever would get an optimized interface. Regardless, we’ll know Tuesday.
