The 5.5-Inch iPhone 6 May Be Available at the Same Time as the 4.7-Inch Model

Bloomberg reports that Apple's suppliers will begin mass production of two new iPhones next month, according to people familiar with the company's plans. It has been widely reported that Apple will release two larger-screen iPhones. One model is said to have a 4.7-inch screen and be available in September. Another larger iPhone with a 5.5-inch screen is also being manufactured and may be available at the same time as the 4.7-inch model.

Apple is ramping up on two bigger-screen iPhones, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private. One model will have a 4.7-inch screen that may be available to ship to retailers around September, said two of the people. A larger 5.5-inch version is also being prepared for manufacturing and may be available at the same time, the people said.

Apple is getting ready for its annual unveiling of new iPhones, with bigger screens beyond the 4 inches of its current iPhone 5s after rivals including Samsung Electronics Co. and HTC Corp. released smartphones with displays that are as large as 5.7 inches. Consumers have been gravitating toward larger-screen devices -- in China, 40 percent of mobile gadgets based on Google Inc.’s Android operating system that were sold in 2014 had display sizes of more than 5 inches, according to an estimate from Forrester Research.

Bloomberg claims the new iPhones will be rounder and thinner than the current model. Apple is allegedly facing production issues with the 5.5-inch model which need to be addressed before yields can be increased.

iOS 8 will also be launching along side the new iPhones. There's a lot of changes in iOS 8. Here's a few of the changes we've posted on already:Continuity, Health, iCloud Drive, Family Sharing, Photos, Camera, Mail, Safari, Messages, QuickType, Third-Party Keyboards, Interactive Notifications, and Contact Shortcuts.

It makes sense to release both at the same time, because if they didn't, everyone would hold off on purchasing the one while waiting to see what the other one looks like.
