Apple iPhone 5S on track for fall 2013 debut, while Apple tests iPhones with 4.7- and 5.7-inch screens for next year, reports say.
Apple is looking to join the phablet fray. The company is testing larger iPhones for a 2014 debut due to growing market pressure from the likes of Samsung. Further, Apple's 2013 roadmap may include not one, but two new iPhones.
Apple is currently testing larger iPhones, according to a handful of sources cited by Reuters. There are two models being considered at the moment: one has a 4.7-inch screen and the other has a 5.7-inch screen. Phones with displays this large are often called phablets, because they bridge the gap between smartphones and tablets. Reuters' sources, which include Asian component suppliers, believe that Apple is still researching these models and hasn't made any final decisions on whether or not to bring them to market. This report echoes similar reports from earlier this year.
