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?

What are the benefits?

This is the main question you should ask yourself. What good would a 16:9 screen bring to you, the user?

First, proponents of the 16:9 iPhone say that this is the “format of the future.” It’s the resolution of HD video, be it 720p or 1080p. TV shows are filmed in 16:9 format. Home video is filmed in 16:9 format. They claim that people want to see all this video without letterboxing—that people hate black bars on the top and bottom of their displays. They argue that a 16:9 format will allow the iPhone to use the whole screen when watching video of this kind.          More
