Apple is rumored to announce a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 later this year alongside with the 12-inch iPad. The new Xcode 6 provides a very obvious hint that the rumors might be true.
The Xcode 6 includes two new iOS simulator features namely “Resizable iPhone” and “Resizeable iPad” that allows developers to resize the screen for any resolution. This allows developers to test their apps for future iOS devices that might come with a larger screen such as the rumored 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhones.
Previously, the iOS simulator only had the option to simulate apps on 3.5 inch iPhone, 4 inch iPhone, iPad as well as Retina iPad and so on. However, this time, the simulator now comes with resizable sizes for iPhone and iPad which increases the likelihood of a possible larger iPhone or iPad in the future.
According to previous rumors, iPhone 6’s 4.7 inch display will have a resolution of 1704 x 960 pixels which would be three times the base which is 568 x 320 and it has been rumored that the company might release a 5.5 inch variant of iPhone 6 as well as a 12-inch iPad.
