WSJ Tipoff Reveals Apple Order Of Larger Screens

If the tipoff received by The Wall Street Journal is any indication, the next iPhone could have a four-inch screen. According to the publication, Apple has been contacting several Asian suppliers to enquire about larger screens than those on the latest iPhone. At least four inches in size, this would put the new screens one half inch ahead of the current iPhone screens. While the WSJ wouldn’t get specific about who they received this information from, they did say that the individual or individuals were ‘familiar with the situation’. If the sources are reliable, then production involving the new screens could gain momentum as early as next month, seeing as the next iPhone is most recently reported to be unveiled this fall. Along with the tipoff comes speculation about the reason for the ordering of the larger screens. Some suspect Apple is attempting to keep up with its Samsung Android rival.
