    Saw this from some folks on twitter - eg. Mark Gurman

    Can't understand why Apple is doing this???

    I thought that the X is as wide as the 4.7” but taller. It’s not as wide as the plus so why should it use the plus UI?

    the iphone X has a larger safe space area top and bottom. If you reduce it to the functional 9:16 area it's actually around 5", much closer to the regular iphone.

    From what I understand the Plus UI is pretty neglected and worthless anyway

    iOS11 UI is not ready for iPhone X. I'm sure iOS12 will do a great job next year.

    There’s so much broken with the iPhone X display i’m not sure any UI will work that well on it yet.

    Rounded edges (no one has even mentioned that, and that’s going to be a UI layout problem in itself, but nowhere near as bad as...) the notch, etc.

    The X is an evolution of the 4.7” iPhone.

    There is no next phase for the iPhone Plus yet.

    I honestly hate the Plus UI. I almost never use my Plus in landscape unless I'm watching a video. In Apps, the split UI isn't nearly as useful at is on something like an iPad and the homescreen rotation is just annoying. I really don't get why people are so hung up about this, do people really use their phones in landscape often?

    I never use it so I don't mind. Looking forward to the X size.

    The whole "bigger screen than a Plus" thing is a ruse.

    Same width as a 4.7" phone, but it's taller. That's it. Still less usable screen real estate than a Plus big a pretty good margin.

    This year X is the edge to edge normal iphone. Next year, we already heard rumors about the plus edge to edge variant with 6.4”
