We do know that the self-proclaimed “world’s most advanced mobile operating system” is about to get bumped up even further the echelon with the arrival of the iPhone 5 (or next generation iPhone, depending on just what you want to call it), and iOS 6 is its name. Apart from some changes that folks might not jive with, it is nearly certain that iOS 6 will run nicely on the higher resolution and subsequently, larger display of the iPhone 5 compared to the smartphone’s predecessors, meaning the user interface will hum along at a resolution of 640 x 1136.

More screenshots of iOS 6 running on the next generation iPhone has surfaced, and it is rather interesting to note that applications built with the Apple-built user-interface elements, including TableViews (which is somewhat similar to a contact list or contact card) will scale themselves automatically on the newer, more generous display. It remains to be seen, however, taht third-party apps constructed using such user interface elements will run peachy keen on the new iPhone sans developer input.
