Here we are again, another new Apple device and another new screen resolution to accommodate. There has been some obvious debate over the new screen size but I for one am loving the long format, it does allow a bit more screen real estate without sacrificing a comfortable feel in the hand. I hold the new phone more within my fingers rather than my palm so my thumb has more space to reach all areas of the screen but I have had no trouble using it with one hand. The feel and finish of it is pretty extraordinary, no one else on the market is making anything like this and to call it “just another iPhone” is pretty short sighted. I have a feeling that those holding that mentality are simply rebelling against the popularity of Apple in general which I can understand to some extent and of course I realize everyone has their own opinion.
How is it that for years now Apple has released laptop and desktop computers along a similar and gradual design evolution but we all expect a dramatic redesign every year with the iPhone? What would you expect it to be? A circle? Should it have mood detection and texture mapping? When did we get so spoiled, entitled, or desperate for something new all the time? Doesn’t it exhaust you never being happy with a piece of tech for more than one year? Haha, OK I digress, this has nothing to do with why you are here today, we are here to celebrate the new iPhone 5 display so lets see what we have here…
• Never re-host full resolution images without permission from fiftyfootshadows.net
• Please refrain from linking directly to images, simply link back to this page.
• These images are provided for your personal use only as digital wallpaper.
• Do not make any physical reproductions of these without permission. (A shop is coming!)
• This include posting them on Instagram and pretending you took the photo with your iPhone
• Screenshots are fine, I encourage you to share with others in this way, I just ask that you help me out by linking back to 50ft.
Thats it! Simply read the Terms for more details and thank you so much for your understanding and support! I do my best to make 50ft as great as I can make it and it would be impossible without the support of you guys. I have an exciting roadmap lined up for the site and while I know things move slowly at times around here it will only get better in the future.
I did my best to prepare a well rounded selection of images. If you have a favorite that I left out let me know and I will see what I can do to add it to the collection. Every wallpaper from here on will be cropped to the new format. It will work with older models of iPhone as well, of course. You may also notice a few new images hiding in there that I have not made a dedicated post for yet. Just a little something fresh for you. Check back here in case any others get added from the past, otherwise I will see you here in the future for plenty more great imagery.
