It’s very soon going to be time to upgrade from my iPhone 6, and my wife was recently informed by our friends at AT&T that the technology in her flip phone (yes, that’s right) will no longer be supported as of early next year.
So since we’re going to be getting new phones, I wanted to be sure that we both selected the right model, at least based on size, given the cost of any smart phones these days, much less the latest iPhones.
Please note, these are not guaranteed to be size accurate, but based on all of the publicly available information on the diagonal screen sizes, and the form factor / shape Apple has used previously, as well as Series 12 mock ups that have been out in the wild, I took one of the mock up photos that show the various dimensions, and scaled it appropriately, to get the specified diagonal measurments for the three sizes that are rumored to be announced next week.
End the end, holding these in our hands actually pushed both of us to the Pro Max model because of the form factor, and the fact that our eyes are not as good as they once were. Bonus is that that model is supposed to have a (slightly) better battery life.
I thought I’d share so anyone else who is thinking about getting a new iPhone can save a few minutes mocking them up to get a good feel.
FYI, since the width us supposed to be 7.4mm, it will be just a bit thicker than 2 sheets of medium proofgrade draftboard - so print 2 and glue / hold them together for thickness.
Hope some find it helpful.
