With many rumors recently suggesting that the next iPhone will be featuring a larger screen that is said to be 4-inches, there have also been speculations that the phone will be having a taller screen due to the fact that many users still like the width of the current iPhone. From these rumors, the folks over at MacRumors commissioned Ciccarese Design to produce some high quality mockups of what such a device that has a larger screen which just entails a taller iPhone and not a wider one looks like. With the taller iPhone, it would include one row to the iPhone’s home screen that will allow five rows of icons per page as opposed to the current four rows excluding the icons pinned in the dock at the bottom of the screen.
With the latest measurement increment, it means the diagonal dimension of the screen will be increased from 3.5-inches to 4-inches while maintaining its current width. On top of that, it will add 11mm to the overall height of the next-gen iPhone. If this mockup is anything to go by, the new iPhone’s body will measure in at approximately 125mm, which is 10mm taller than the iPhone 4S with the spacing and components above and below the display staying about the same. What do you think about this latest mockup about what could be the next-gen iPhone?

iPhone 6S Prepares For September 18th Release Date
If you are on the lookout for either the iPhone 6S or the iPhone 6S Plus, then here is news for you – chances are pretty high that you can pick up either one, or perhaps even both if you are feeling fat in the pocket, this coming September 18th. First of all, there was a leaked internal memo from Vodafone alongside Japanese site ITHome and German tech experts Macerkopf claiming that the new iPhones 6S models will roll out this coming September 18th in their respective countries
With Japan, Germany and the UK being tier one Apple launch countries, this means that those living in the mentioned countries will receive the iPhones at the same time as folks living over in the US – traditionally speaking, of course.

iPad Air 3 Not Coming This Year According To Rumors
It looks like the folks over at Digitimes have come up with their own interpretation of things to come – that there will be no iPad Air 3 released, at least for this year. Digitimes has had their fair share of hits and misses in the past, so it would be best to take this rumor concerning the non-release of the iPad Air 3 in 2015 with a pinch of salt.
Digitimes also laid claim that the iPad mini 4 will not be as supercharged as some of the rumors that had been going around, as it will bring with it only small and incremental upgrades when compared to its predecessor, the iPad mini 3. This does not seem to bode well for fans of the compact tablet, taking into consideration how the iPad mini 3 itself was improved over its predecessor with a new Touch ID fingerprint reader.
Since Apple tends to roll out a new iPad in October, we will just have to sit tight and see whether this particular rumor has enough “legs” to run.
