Why the Next iPhone Won’t Be 16:9

Gizmodo –

Every year it’s the same stupid rumor: “the new iPhone will have a 16:9 display.” It even circulated before the first iPhone came out. And it happens with the iPad too. This year isn’t different. But does it make sense? Would the next iPhone really have a 16:9 screen?
