Rejected iPhone 6 Designs
Contest Directions: Apple announced their two new super-sized iPhones - the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Sized at 4.7 and 5.5 inches they actually feel more like a mini iPad rather than a bigger iPhone. The apps had to be completely rewritten for the larger screens - e.g. The Messages, Stocks, and Mail apps now have a two panel horizontal view. Despite these adjustments, the super-sized iPhone 6 are not as easy to use as their predecessors - typing sms messages with just one hand and your thumb is going to be a problem - as the keyboard is wider and the left letters are hard to reach. Samsung Galaxy smartphones were criticized for their Godzilla sizes and heavy weight, but the new iPhone 6 Plus is even bigger. The release date is September 19.
Size is definitely going to be a widely discussed issue for the iPhone 6. Let us show the iPhone 6 designs that would be rejected as inconvenient - make them too wide or too long, shape them into a square, triangle, circle, or any other forms. You can also show how apps could be located/designed in those inconveniently shaped iPhones.
