We already know what iOS 8 looks like and we have a very good approximation of what the iPhone 6 will look like thanks to several pictures of leaked dummies, so why not use some crafty video editing to combine the two? YouTube user Tom Rich decided to give it a shot and he’s posted a new video that superimposes iOS 8 onto a dummy of the iPhone 6, thus showing us what the new software may look like on a larger 4.7-inch display.
Rich emphasizes that this simulation shouldn’t be seen as an exact replica of what iOS 8 will look like on the iPhone 6 and that it’s only his best estimate based on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6’s leaked dimensions. That said, Rich does a very nice job of putting the video together and he really shows us how great iOS 8 could look with a larger display that will let Apple use both larger icons and a wider keyboard that will make typing much easier.
Interestingly, Rich has decided to simply make the home screen icons on the iPhone 6 iOS 8 simulation larger than the ones on the iPhone 5s instead of trying to squeeze in an extra row of icons. It will be interesting to see whether Apple decides to add an extra row of icons to the upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone phablet, which will have more screen real estate than any iPhone yet released.
