With the autumn getting closer, the rumors of the upcoming iPhone fly from every direction. The new once claims that according to a report from Asian parts suppliers to Apple suggests that Cupertino is indeed testing larger displays for both the iPhone and the iPad. This is not the unique speculation of that ilk, and the report suggests Apple is actively looking at larger panels, with the iPad one sitting just under 13-inches as well. Wall Street Journal also reacted on the rumor by saying that:
“In recent months, Apple has asked for prototype smartphone screens larger than 4 inches and has also asked for screen designs for a new tablet device measuring slightly less than 13 inches diagonally, they said.
An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment. Reuters earlier reported Apple was investigating larger screen sizes for its iPhone.
The screen tests come as Apple is set to disclose third fiscal-quarter earnings on Tuesday and provide insight into how the company's existing lineup is selling. In April, the Cupertino, Calif., company reported profits contracted for the first time in a decade despite strong demand for the iPhone and iPad. “
The important thing to note is that similarly to major of the manufacturers, Apple is also set to routinely test different designs for different products, while many of them may never actually come to the market. So this means that we may never actually see the larger iPad or the iPhone available for sale. What are your thoughts?
