Base screen size for developing apps?

Hi,
I would like other developers opinions on what size screen to use for writing iOS apps. I've been using the iPhone 4 and set the standalone to iOS 7.1 or higher. Then I make sure the objects that need to be re-positioned due to the screen size are located correctly, as we all do. My reasoning is that there are approximately 23 million iPhone 4s in the US alone. A piece of the market I don't want to leave behind. The drawback, as you know, is real estate. The iPhone 4 screen is small compared to the others so you need to be creative on how you utilize the space. I don't typically do game apps, more business or tools.

Your thoughts and opinions are much appreciated.
