Xcode 6 SDK hints at iPhone 6 display resolution - read the full textAccording to some iOS 8 files found inside Xcode 6 SDK, the resolution of the iPhone 6 display will be 828 x 1472. Although the number looks like someone pulled it out their backside, there seems to be some logic behind it. One of the files within the iOS 8 Springboard was optimized for a...

Here's the Apple slogan: "Yesterday's technology at tomorrow's prices".

Tell me, Why are all the new apple devices just about the same not much of a difference? looks the same feels the same just some extra pixels on the camera. Has Apple ran out of ideas?

Is my device superior to your's? Due to the software modifications I've got on it I would bet a solid Yes that it is. Keep your iphone and get saving. Baaaaa

Too much fake rumors. Nothing is as exiciting as iPhone so everyone is just making up stuff. Just wait one more month and we will know the facts.

Side-note: my comment was only directed to the display.
The CPU cores, although manufactured externally, are indeed full Apple design.

That puts the PPI very close to BB Z10, and the low PPI of Z10 is giving me considerable problems for example when browsing desktop websites, its just not enough to read small text without zooming and panning like crazy, the text is big enough to be readable but the low PPI takes away the clarity needed for easy reading.

And i thought only the insane length and the battery size was the problem of iPhone 6, then this comes up as another definitive dealbreaker. I really expected a decent PPI this time but i guess all Apple employees are above 65 years old and dont see the need?

> In reply to Shellshock @ 2014-08-20 11:00 from ajP1 - click to readThere have been a lot of fake leaks concerning Apple, and this one like you say could be an "internal concealment".

That this was NOT discovered by or presented by a Passport Control Officer indicates to me it should have been left where it was as it is from a Sagittarian as it is PURE BULL.

Apple were for a long time using standard resolution of 640 x 960 which increased to 640 x 1136 with the display increase.

I am not an Apple fan, 414 x 736 is not Apple.

What is more feasible imo is 800 x 1420 resolution which means the ppi has also INCREASED to 346.78 PPI

I always suspect leaks which refer to the just the 4.7" iPhone as so far they are altered iPhone5S and real "official leaks" mention both the 4.7" & 5.5"

Unknown atm is how the A8 chip factors into this as the battery capacity has increased by 16% whilst the display increase by over twice that, a 400+ ppi imo is not possible

You can clearly see from the magnification of the displays that iPhone 5(S) display matrix has the same construction as other LG phones such as the old Optimus G.

BTW the fancy pancy name called 'Retina' is Ips technology made by LG. This is a simple example of how apple is made....left over cuts from a cows and feet/nose/cartilage to make a polony we buy from stores.
