iPhones With Bigger Screens? Don't Hold Your Breath Waiting

The Apple rumor mill is churning again, with the Wall Street Journal reporting on Monday (July 22) that Apple has asked suppliers for samples of prototype screens bigger than the iPhone's current four-inch displays. That's not the first time this one has made the rounds—Reuters reported in June that Apple was testing 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch displays. None of this has been confirmed by Apple, whose CEO, Tim Cook, hinted at a conference in May that current larger screens have too many tradeoffs for picture quality and power consumption. And though it seems likely the iPhone will eventually get a bigger screen, it's likely at least a year off, if only because there's not time enough to fit it into this year's model, the iPhone 5S, which is expected to be announced in the fall.
