Many have asked for a device that offers a wider screen so that there would be less space between the edge of the device and the screen itself. It would be fitting with a massive change in design for the next-generation iPhone, and rival Samsung in its large-screen devices; some of which are more alike a tablet in size than a traditional smartphone.
This would, however, pose a problem for application developers on the App Store as they will have to adapt their applications to adjust to the wider screen. It would fragment the App Store and mean only certain applications would be able to be run on the iPhone 5, leaving many legacy applications out in the cold or accessible but with a thick bar on either side of the application to accommodate the wider screen. It would also pose a problem for Apple itself as it would need a more powerful A6 chip to push even more pixels to its Retina display screen. It's a nice idea, but ultimately unlikely.
