New iPhone and iPad rumors are floating around, as we get closer to Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The most significant of these comes from WeiPhone, which claims that the so-called “iPhone 5S” will have a screen resolution around three times that of the current model.
According to the report, Apple will stick with a 4-inch screen on the next iPhone. However, that is where the similarities with the iPhone 5 will end. The screen on the new model is said to feature 1.5 megapixels, or 727,000 more than the existing iPhone. In total, the screen will measure 1704 x 960 pixels.
The second rumor comes from ETNews, which claims that Apple is working on an iPad “maxi” that could measure 12.9-inches. This larger tablet would serve as a replacement for textbooks in classrooms, and launch in 2014.
Neither of these rumors can be confirmed, of course. However, I will go out on a limb and squash the iPad maxi rumors, at least somewhat.
While I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple release a larger iPad at some point, they would never call it the iPad maxi. Wouldn’t you agree?
As a reminder, WWDC begins on Monday, June 10. AppAdvice will be there to cover the keynote address, which begins at 10 a.m. PDT. Stay tuned.
