Thinking about the taller screen...

I'm one of the "happy with a 3.5" screen" users, but I can accept the seemingly inevitable "larger screened" iPhone.

I have seen a few posts about UI mockups dealing with the change in resolution and the impact on existing and future app development. I also read many people's complaints/expectations for "new" features in iOS 6.

That got me thinking about the possibility of Apple utilizing the additional space for a semi-permanent system/notification/quick-dock-type space. It could "babysit" in the extra space for apps that aren't changed to be "full screen" and could disappear when watching video, so as to not have cropping.

Just a thought for the Core...
