As per the report by the publication, “Apple, based in Cupertino, California, has placed orders from suppliers in Asia for screens that are bigger than the 3.5- inch size now on the smartphone, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October, one person said.” The report goes on to add, “The design change will be Apple’s first for the iPhone since 2010, when it introduced the iPhone 4. Electronics makers, led by Samsung, are moving toward bigger screens, as consumers use handheld devices for a broader array of tasks, including watching video, playing games and browsing the Web.”
This is the third major news publication that has been informed that Apple will incorporate a bigger display on their next iPhone with Reuters and the Wall Street Journal, both stating that the sixth generation iPhone will feature a screen measuring at 4 inches. Apart from the larger display, to battle competition faced by Samsung and a range of other smartphone manufacturers, the brand is also believed to fit the upcoming iPhone with LTE connectivity, NFC capabilities and a micro dock. With the rumours of the next iPhone coming in thick and fast, one can gather that the design is finalized and the only thing remaining is the production of the handset. The next iPhone is expected to be unveiled by the third quarter of this year.
