It seems almost certain at this point that Apple will release a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 sometime in September. That’s a considerable size bump from the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5, so what does this mean for consumers? We’ve already had a good look at the iPhone 6 dummy unit, we have one in our office, but we haven’t yet seen what iOS 8 will look like on the big screen.
Now thanks to a demo from YouTuber Tom Rich, we have the best look yet at what the software experience will look like on a larger iPhone. Rich used some video editing magic to run the demo, so he didn’t actually add any operating hardware into the iPhone 6 dummy, but the result is still stunning. We can see how great iOS 8 looks on a bigger screen – the keyboard looks roomier, for example – though note there isn’t room for an additional row of icons in this demo. As Rich reminds us in the video, keep in mind this is just a simulation of what the experience may look like.
Hopefully Apple has some extra tricks up its sleeves for taking advantage of the bigger screen. iOS 8 is currently in the beta 2 stage of release, so there’s plenty of time for additional features to be added, and we’re expecting a few surprises when the operating system launches this fall.
Now how about a demo with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6?
Here’s another gallery of our iPhone 6 dummy unit:
