It looks like the 5.5-inch version of the upcoming iPhone 6 will offer landscape mode, with a two-column user interface similar to that of the iPad. Developer Steven Troughton-Smith tweaked the resolution of the iOS simulator to 736 points x 414 points, going by the assumption that the new iPhone will feature a screen resolution of 2208 x 1242. In doing so, he was able to get a two-column view that offers much more productivity.

Going eyes-on with an iPhone 6 mockup at IFA

Even the IFA, the big German trade show that just saw the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can't escape the shadow of Apple's upcoming iPhone 6. That's thanks to case makers who, every year, bring their dummy units along to show off their upcoming wares. This year, the same manufacturer who previously showed off iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s mockups before their launch had an iPhone 6 mockup ready and waiting. Sadly it was locked away in a glass case, but we did at least get a look at the front and sides.

History of iPhone: From revolution to the next big thing

The definitive guide to Apple's reinvention of the phone: From the original iPhone to what comes next!

Apple introduced the original iPhone back in 2007, instantly obsoleting every other smartphone on the planet in every way that mattered. Over the next two years, with the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, Apple increased functionality while simultaneously lowering price, taking the smartphone fully out of the niche and making it mainstream. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S continued that evolution, bringing support for broader carriers and faster speeds, better displays and new, natural language interfaces. The iPhone 5 took manufacturing to new levels and the screen to new heights, but most importantly it set the stage for what's coming next — iOS 8, the iPhone 6, the iWatch, and more. Before we embark on that brave new future, however, we're going to take a look back. This is the story of Apple's revolutionary phone. Of Steve Jobs' phone. Of the iPhone. And for many of us, our phone.

The first was a re-imagining of the previous year's model in a new, more colorful form. It was the past made present. The second was all about the future. It was, as Phil Schiller called it, the most forward thinking iPhone ever. It was the iPhone 5s.
