    Default Big Screen iPhones May be Apple's Biggest Gamble


    As MMi reported earlier today, Apple invested a record sum of capital on research and development for the June 2014 quarter, presumably getting their ducks in a row for major new product releases in new product categories.

    But whether or not we see the iWatch or iTV this year (not to mention other rumored products), the biggest gamble Apple may take is on its next generation iPhone 6. That risk, however, is closely tied to the company's anticipated experimental large-screen iPhone.

    With larger 5.5-inch screens expected for one of the models of Apple's next-gen iPhone 6, Apple is believed to be so enthusiastic about the sales potential of its inaugural phablet that it will go to market with a record number of units.

    "The Cupertino, Calif., company is asking suppliers to manufacture between 70 million and 80 million units combined of two large-screen iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays by Dec. 30," knowledgeable sources tell the WSJ.

    So why is this a "gamble"? Although consumers have demonstrated a compelling interest in phablets, it remains to be seen if millions of large-screen Android device owners will migrate to iOS as predicted if Apple releases a phablet-sized iPhone. If not, and Apple produces the mammoth quantities we're told are on tap, Apple could be facing somewhat of a domestic sales dud akin to the iPhone 5c when compared to the popularity of the iPhone 5s.

    Either way, Apples new iPhones are expected in mid-September.

    buy an iPad, I'd prefer them to stay smaller.


    Edit: the 5(s) size is spot on!!!

    Finally someone I agree with.

    Besides, what will women do? Their pockets barely fit an iPhone now.

    I'm upgrading from an iPhone 5, I welcome the bigger screen. Now I just have to decide if I'm going with 4.7 or 5.5 in, IF there will be two different sizes.

    Can't wait either and I don't really care much for the 5.5' (too big for my hand) 4/7' is perfect for me.

    Exactly. I can possibly deal with the 4.7" screen, but 5.5" is too much.

    Never understood Fandroids using the bigger screen argument for there phones. I bought a Note 3 when it first came out and took it back to get a 5s in a week. My main issue wasnt the OS or the hardware but the size. Its just to impractical as a phone. Give my and Android phone with all the specs in an iphone size and I might give it another go, untill then, I'm happy with my jailbroken iphone.

    Eventually all men will have to carry a handbag too. These phones are too large, and heavier than the weights at my gym...

    I personally wouldn't mind a slightly bigger screen. So, I think the 4.7 should be just right! I have never understood the obsession with 5.5 and bigger screens. I got the first Note when it came out and took it back after my first phone call on it. It feel like I was holding an old school calculator to my head. I mostly liked texting on it but making phone calls made me feel stupid. I've tried every OS and every brand multiple times and I keep coming back to iPhones but I've always loved the idea of a slightly bigger screen.

    Personally, I think the man purse becoming popular would be great! I have to cram so much crap into my pockets sometimes I feel like a gangster with my pants on the ground.

    Haha, maybe put your lipstick in there too! But yah, I believe everything will become virtualized, including currency, and in the near future we won't need to carry wallets . Unless the bulk of your pockets come from something else ;D

    I was hoping that they would release in the same size as the iphone5s, with just a few enhancements. I will have to hold on to my iphone5 and hope that Apple realizes there mistake before iphone7 or whatever it may be called arrives.
