Jobs played ‘key role’ in developing next iPhone

Updated

Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was deeply involved in the development of the next-generation iPhone, according to a new report. Citing multiple people with knowledge of Apple’s plans, Bloomberg reports that Apple will “overhaul” the look of the iPhone with the next-generation model. It also claims that Jobs worked closely on the phone, which is said to sport a larger screen than past models. Earlier this month, iLounge reported that the next iPhone is slated to have a screen that’s roughly 4-inches diagonally, and that’s taller than prior screens, allowing Apple to increase the screen size without needing to widen the device itself.
