The thought of a 5-inch iPhone is a nice one, but let’s face it, the larger version of Apple’s popular smartphone is not going to be released this year because of a number of factors, which we discussed yesterday. However, you do have an opportunity to get your hands on the iPhone 6 today, and that’s by printing one.
The reason why the larger iPhone is available for you to print is so that you can see how it feels in your hand. It’s obvious that we would not get to try out a real 5-inch iPhone anytime soon, so Mac Rumors thought that they would commission an image instead to see just how they got on as well. However, there is one issue that we can see, this mockup is not waterproof like the Xperia Z, so don’t try putting it down a toilet.
This is not the first time that a printable mockup was commissioned, as the same was done to the iPad mini as well. Not only can you print a three-dimensional version of the proposed iPhone 6, but you can also print some of the screens as well, which not only gives you an idea of the size of the new icons, but also the text app and also the web browser as well.
While the designer of this printable iPhone has stuck with the same design as the iPhone 5, it’s nice to see that not only is the 5-inch version taller, but finally wider as well, although still not as wide as other 5-inch smartphones currently on the market.
There is an issue with the larger design though, as you will no longer be able to use the iPhone with ease using one hand like you currently can. I’m not too sure if this would bother me so much, because it hasn’t hindered owners of 5-inch smartphones because it has actually made life much easier, as it’s no longer a struggle to do certain tasks.
