Apple Testing 13-Inch iPad and iPhone With Bigger Display?

The Wallstreet Journal is reporting that Apple along with its suppliers are testing larger screens for both the iPhone and iPad.

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. The current iPhone 5 has a four-inch screen, while the iPad has a 9.7-inch screen. The iPad Mini, a stripped-down version of its tablet computer, has a 7.9-inch screen.

Obviously we do not know if this would ever make it into the market, but there has been rumors that Apple was testing larger displays on its devices.

Reportedly, Apple will be preparing to ramp up production for the new iPad later this month, which will continue to pack a 9.7-inch display with a lighter and thinner display structure. The new structure will integrate different touch sensors with a thin film instead of glass used in existing iPads.

Suppliers have also began producing components for the next iPhone last month and Apple has reportedly told its assembler to being shipping the new iPhones in late August. The low-cost budget iPhone is expected to launch as well with multiple color options and a nonmetal casing to differentiate itself form the high-end iPhone.

i think iphone with 4.3 inches will be perfect for everybody.
Eduardo - July 22, 2013 at 3:36pm
Me too. It would just be slightly wider. Two different choices is better though. This way no one has to settle. Nothing wrong with having choices.
NoGoodNick - July 23, 2013 at 6:28am
I so agree, it looks a very tiny bit too tall making the screen look tiny because it's almost wide enough, this has to be a rumor.

You lot a bunch of retards honestly, why are you grovelling on here to apple as if there going to listen to anything you says you lot seriously need to get out more and stop jurking off these are crappy Lil rumours an already you are begging and pleading u bunch of homo's honestly
Eduardo - July 22, 2013 at 3:35pm
Perhaps you should learn to spell or use spell check before you call anyone a retard. Maybe revise your ignorant comment before pointing your finger. We all have typos including myself but yours are clearly grammatical errors due to poor English language skills not due to phone or finger placement error. Trash.
