Mockup depicts enhanced Maps on four-inch iPhone 5

By , Jun 4, 2012

As you know, iOS 6 will bring an all-new Maps app said to feature Apple’s own tiles and brand new in-house solution for breathtaking 3D view.

Though Google is expected to add the third dimension to its own Maps service as early as Wednesday, we’ve already seen screenshot mockups depicting 3D terrain in iOS 6 Maps.

As for the enhanced two-dimensional view, here’s what the new Maps app could look like on that next iPhone that by all accounts seems to feature a taller four-inch display

A user “gimosachin” created and posted to The Verge these gorgeous mockups of Maps and Safari apps in iOS 6 running on a four-inch iPhone 5.

Here’s the Maps mockup.

And this is what Safari would look like on the next iPhone featuring a taller four-inch display.

Wait, no edge-to-edge display?

By the way, notice the new-look silver theme that will also make a debut in iOS 6.

By all accounts, iOS 6 will enable Siri on the iPad 3 and Siri support in third-party apps, also bringing out system-wide Facebook integration while carrying over certain new features from OS X Mountain Lion. Major enhancements to stock apps are to be expected across the board as well.

What do you guys think?

That is one tall iPhone for sure.

Given that many commenters don’t necessarily like the idea of a taller iPhone, these mockups really do the justice explaining how apps would benefit from the extra pixels.

    Looks amazing. I will buy the new iPhone just for the 4inch screen. I also will expect: Siri, 1gig ram, more pixels, better camera.. A5X/A6 processor And a new design :P this all with iOS 6 will blast every other phone away.

    I think it’s going to be a little bit different holding the iPhone with the larger iPhone but I think it’s going to be awesome! I welcome a bit taller/wider iPhone! Will take some getting used to.

    I am going to be so let down if this next iPhone does not have a bit larger screen IE: no bigger than 4 inches….

    looks badass for sure, but where is the proximity sensor? seems like the camera took that place now.

    THES mockups make the taller screen look great even in the same iphone 4/4S case design…

    so new case design with 12 mp camera LTE 3d turn by turn mapping 1 gig ram will be enough to sell this thing to everyone..

    On 9to5 Mac , they said that siri is being tested in both the new iPad and the iPad 2 , and everybody is expecting that apple will release Siri for both the devices because they are running the same processor ( A5 and A5X are almost equal ) , plus both the devices have the same microphone . So Siri would launch for both iPad 2 and new iPad

    it is an apple product, i cant remember any that didnt sell in the past 6 years, and they are cruising in the future at light speed. God knows what they have up their sleeve.

    So many people creaming their panties over a bigger iPhone bla bla bla, I don’t give a shit if it’s bigger, has LTE or even if it can make my breakfast, if it comes in the same design as the iPhone 4 and 4S then it will suck ass … It looked nice 3 years ago and with the amount they charge for the iPhone they better fucking re-design it and not just stretch it, regardless of how many of you pathetic fanboys seem to jizz over anything Apple unveils.

    It’s actually amusing how you all cry and demand new features yet when Apple unveil the same phone but with Siri (WOW) and a slightly better camera you all seemed to forget everything you wanted, pathetic how easy you are to control by Apple but then if you’re mug enough to keep paying them hundreds of pounds then why would they ever change.

    Wow… Read the first sentence, read it again… Do we really KNOW these things? Or are these just speculations? Maybe with very confident evidence, but until Apple releases it, nothing is for sure :)

    Just a reminder…

    This one look real. Would be nice :D

    I have to admit that the taller model looks better in mockups than with the leaked parts…

    Still clinging to the 3:2 aspect ratio though… :/

    Movies that are 16:9 should fill up the screen this time. I want a 4 or 4+ inch screen please!

    Now there’s a mockup of the new iPhone that actually looks like something Apple designed.

    I think the shape just looks like the 4 and 4S but stretched.. Apple are meant to be innovative and it looks like they haven’t worked on it very much at all.. very dissapointed if it just has abit bigger screen, abit better camera and a stuff all update for ios 6, apparently there is NO change to the ios at all.. Just the main apps will be different.. They have a tough challenge out there as there are more competitors out there coming out with better devices and they have more features and are more innovative.. I’m sad that the widgets aren’t coming in iOS 6.. I think its crap because apple were the first ones to bring out the widgets in OSX.. :( If the iPhone looks like this with not much difference i will move to Samsung :(

      and we all will be very sad if you switch to samsung.

    Man i wanna have one like that for sure. lov it

  • rus cristian

    i will never buy the black one w/o the silver bezel.. looks too common (ahem..Samsung).
    The silver bezel is iconic.
    White is for girls :)

    I don’t like the skeuomorphs in the map view. Should that pretend an opened city map?
