It is again the season for new iPhone rumors. Although Apple came out with the iPhone 4S only last October, June is traditionally the month the company unveils new iPhones.

So, in preparation of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, which typically occurs in the first week of June, expect to see a flurry of rumors and speculation associated with the device. For the record, my money is on Apple coming out with a full-fledged Apple TV before another iPhone.

Alas, while yesterday we told you about the possibility of an LTE iPhone with unibody construction, today’s speculation centers around the associated 4-inch screen that would accommodate this.

The Verge does a good job laying out the rationale of a 4 inch iPhone 5, and how it would actually look and run. While this is more or less pin the tail on the donkey pontification, it’s a good read. As you’ll see, hardware construction for a 4-inch iPhone 5 would still be all about the apps.
