A good concept for taking advantage of the extra screen space on iPhone 5 in iOS

Análisis del iPhone 5. La continuidad como principal característica del nuevo teléfono de Apple

A few weeks ago I published my review of the iPhone 5 and if you remember one of the sections, the iOS 6, my biggest complaint about the new version of the operating system for this terminal was the fact that it does not take advantage of the new and bigger screen . Some visual improvement that would make the operation of the device easier.

From The Verge they have read my thoughts and created the video you can see at the beginning of this post, a wonderful concept that clearly shows what I expected to see, or at least in a similar way, on iPhone 5.

The way they have taken advantage of this increase in size has been by modifying the multitasking bar . Offering not only a nicer design, but also more functionality (by having more space) as well as a clearer operation. The video explains this perfectly.

Will Apple ever implement an idea like this? The truth is that the unification of the iPad and iPhone in iOS is to some extent hopeless . It seems that both systems have to be identical (for better and for worse) and that sometimes penalizes both users.

This point of the system is a clear example, a section designed for the 3.5-inch screen of the iPhone 3GS and 4, and later adapted without any changes to the iPad (where it doesn’t make any sense to have that huge screen) and now on the iPhone 5.

In short, we understand that Apple tries to provide as similar an experience as possible on all its devices. But it is one thing to do that and another to waste (as is the case of the iPhone 5 and iPad) the possibilities of the device by sticking to the script .
