iPhones Getting Bigger: Report

Larger iPhones are on the way, according to a new report.

Bloomberg is reporting Apple has plans to kick-start production in China within the next few months on two new iPhones that will feature larger screens.

The turn over, apparently, will be quick, because the report indicates the devices will be ready to ship to retailers in September.

The new iPhone will have a screen that is 4.7 inches by 5.5 inches and the device will be rounder and thinner than the iPhone 5S, sources told Bloomberg. The move toward larger displays is a bid to enable the Cupertino company to better compete with the larger-screened Smartphones from Samsung and HTC.

Rumors of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 suggest the device will not be available in large numbers due to its use of a sapphire display cover, which is not yet available in large amounts.
