Mock-ups of Apple’s new iPhones are popping up everywhere, like wild fire. Of course, these mock-ups are conjured purely based on speculations. Recent rumours have suggested that Apple would start preparing two new iPhones for production in July – one with a 4.7-inch display, and the other with a 5.5-inch screen. Since its fifth generation model was released last September, we can expect the release of two new larger iPhones around September this year.

Now, Bloomberg has confirmed that Apple is preparing the upcoming iPhones for manufacturing next month. A new study found that half of consumers worldwide have been gravitating towards smartphones with bigger screens. Among those assertions, it is possible that Apple’s new iPhones will carry out these features. This surely bodes well for Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 6, which is expected to be a large-screen device.


Some industry watches have speculated that the iOS 8 was an indication of software changes for a larger-screen device, even though the exact dimensions and display specifications of the iPhone device has been guesswork so far. So, if these predictions are true, we can expect a taller and wider screen for Apple’s new iPhone 6. Perhaps Apple might like the option of having multiple iPhone sizes, or could this be Apple’s strategy of supersizing its phone to match Samsung’s 5-inch smart phone devices?
