According to UBS analyst, Steve Milunovich, Apple may only be launching one of two larger sized iPhones this fall. Barron’s flagged a new research note based on Milunovich, who stated that Apple has a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch version of the dubbed iPhone 6 in the works. This is definitely bigger than the current iPhone 5S, which only has a 4-inch screen. Milunovich’s report agrees that Apple has two models in the works but is certain that only one will be released this fall:
... an “iPhone 6” is most likely to come in August or September, rather than June, in two different models, one with a 4.7-inch screen, one with a 5.5-inch screen. The smaller of the two, seems certain, but the 5.5-inch model may or may not launch at the same time and could be of the same resolution (lower pip), which would help app developers.
Although Steve Milunovich has released new information on the next generation iPhone, there hasn’t really been any previous reports from this UBS analyst. So take it for what it is worth as iPhone 6 rumors and leaks will continue to flood the web while Apple is getting closer to production.
