Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal released a report that suggests that Apple is looking at larger screens for its next-generation iPhones that could launch in late 2014. The report said the company is testing screens as big as 6 inches but has seemed to settle on a much more manageable 4.8-inch class screen.




Usually I wouldn't give much credence to reports of a larger screen iPhone being in the works as rumors of larger screen sizes have been around for as long as the iPhone has. However, I am more inclined to believe that a 4.8-inch iPhone will be released next year when the information comes from a high-profile site such as the Wall Street Journal. Ultimately, though, only time will tell and roughly a year from now we should know the truth.


Next week, Apple is widely expected to announce its next-generation iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at a launch event being held on September 10. Both devices are said to retain the same form-factor as the current-generation iPhone 5, and other than a redesigning of the case and iOS 7, not much is going to be different on either phone.
