It reportedly will have a 640 x 1,136 Retina display and an aspect ratio of 16:9, which will allow users to watch videos in a widescreen format. Apple may also add a fifth row of icons to the home screen.

Actor Richard Dreyfuss gave a speech about Jobs and his contribution to society. Dreyfuss voiced the memorable "crazy ones" Apple commercial in the late 1990s.
