iPhone 6 With Big Display Rumored for 2014 Release

While the iPhone 5s brought along the same 4-inch Retina Display found on the iPhone 5, Apple’s next iPhone is heavily rumored to be coming with a much larger display with rumors suggesting that Apple is testing a variety of different sizes, some as large as 6-inches. A new note from an analyst though suggests that Apple may install a 4.8-inch display on an iPhone 6, a size that would put it on par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, Nexus 4 and HTC One.

In the months before the iPhone 5s launch, there were rumors suggesting that 2013 might be the year that Apple delivers a large screen iPhone to compete against the big screen Android devices on the market and satisfy consumers who have been looking for more screen real estate. A rumor from analyst Brian White in particular suggested that Apple might debut three different iPhones in different sizes. Of course, that rumor did not pan out and the company instead delivered two new iPhones, an iPhone 5s and an iPhone 5c, both of which tout 4-inch Retina Displays.

Rumors point to an iPhone 6 with a larger display in 2014.

The release of those devices does not rule out a larger iPhone in the future however and reports suggest that Apple is still thinking about releasing an iPhone with a larger display. All signs at the moment point to next year’s iPhone 6, a numbered iPhone, coming with a large display. Recently, the company was rumored to be testing displays up to 6-inches in size and today, according to BGR, Jefferies & Co. analyst Peter Misek issued a note to investors claiming that the company would be releasing a 4.8-inch iPhone 6 next year.

Misek is a well-respected analyst and while that doesn’t mean that a 4.8-inch iPhone 6 is set in stone, it does align with what we’ve heard from other reports, a sign that Apple could very well introduce a large-screened iPhone as soon as next year. Misek doesn’t mention any other features on board the iPhone 6 though rumors have suggested that it will come with a handful of upgrades including an A8 processor.

If Apple continues with is current iPhone release cycle, we should see a ton of iPhone 6 rumors emerge over the course of 2014 with an arrival in the fall season ahead of the holidays. The iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5s all arrived in the fall and it could be that Apple releases an iPhone 6 a little less than a year from now.

    Wow, “Apple to be gone”, your sure must hate Apple products. I suspect it is because you don’t have enough spare cash to purchase their products. Oh, and you really should have kept your eyes and ears open when attending English class.

    Poor Apple….

    Goodbye Apple and Hello HTC MAX of Samsung Note 3.

    Very sad Apple thinks they can tell consumers what they want :-(

    Guess that did not notice an aging population who wants 5.5+ inch phones.

    When I thought Apple was going to ahve a 5.7 inch iPhone I was happy…Now, I will probably jump ship to a Driod.

    • Apple to be gone says

      You can an iPad lol lol, but ya android is the way poor David don’t think so he’s an apple fanboy!! He like to be told what to do, I bet he still listens to mama!!

      • Expertmagician says

        If they sold a 6 inch iPad with a phone options AND if it was subsidized by the cell phone companies, I would buy it…..

        Mmmm, maybe Apple could call it an i-Phablet.

        PS: By the way, so called “poor david” is lucky enough to have avoid using iTunes to give customers more control.

        NOTE; I do like the iPhone…..But, without a larger screen, I will switch…many of my friends already went to Droid and like it….so, I am not fearfull !

        I actually like my iPhone 3GS (old because I am waiting for a larger iPhone). and my wife and kids like their iPhone 4, 4S and 5…and iPOD. But, I am really a windows guy except for my phones.

        But, now that I am aging, I want a larger screen and the “zoom” capability does not cut it.

        I heard a while ago that Apple was concerned about how some applications would look on the larger screen. (ie. resolution, etc.). I suspect that the “too large to hold in 1 hand” excuse is simply a cover for more complex technical issues.

        • Apple to be gone says

          Apple has so much money they I’m sure can figure it out?? Although you have a great point, the 3GS had the best reseption and fewest dropped calls too
