If you’ve yet to lay eyes on an iPhone 5, or compare the iPhone 5 to stock apps running on lesser iPhone hardware, then this video is for you.
Inside, we take a look at the majority of the stock iPhone apps, and compare them side-by-side running on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S hardware. Besides the obvious added spacing, most of the differences are fairly subtle.
One thing you will notice, however, is that keyboard keys are slightly larger, and there’s more room on screen to see content like messages, and message composition panes. Simply put, once you get used to the iPhone 5’s roomier screen, anything less seems claustrophobic.
We’ve also taken the liberty to export a large jpeg which showcases each of the iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S stock app comparisons side-by side. You can download the full image by clicking on the smaller image below.
What do you think about the way Apple’s utilizing the extra real estate? Personally, I find it just fine, it’s nice to have room to “stretch out” a bit.
