More trashy analyst reporting. It was never delayed, Apple has no problem making a 5.5" phone, or a 6.5" phone, or an iPad Mini, iPad air or any other size device they can imagine and have working, polished, manufacturable models ready to roll.

As many said here on these forums, a 5.5" was unlikely this year, the idea that it would come out a few months after the 4.7" screamed un-apple (the white iPhone was a mistake they won't make again quickly) and now the 'ever reliable' Kuo is backing off his random blatherings.

I am not do quick to dismiss it. There's a reason all the part leaks have been the 4.7".

The fact that we haven't seen a front face for the 5.5 tells us that it will not happen this year. I just can't see them doing the 5.5. Apple takes its time when moving to different form factors.

What do you mean? if one type of display has a better yield and better quality why use one that is inferior?

If you can elaborate on more that would be nice.

I wouldn't bet against the iPhone coming in 2 screen sizes. I don't understand why so many people around here are getting irrationally angry about how this phone doesn't exist and it's the worst idea ever etc. etc. Why do you all care so much? If you don't like it, don't buy it.

I love this site, but I must say, sometimes the rumors are misleading.
Last week they said September, this week 2015, whats next????
This is very confusing.

If this happens it's game over for Apple in the smartphone market. Apple is already dying a slow death in this market; this will just about put the nail in the coffin.

Didn't we hear the same thing about the retina iPad mini? One minute it was happening, the next it wasn't, the next it was.

It was NEVER coming! Yes, I believe they HAD a prototype, but that's it!

Why not you say?

1.) iPad sales would plummet (yeah yeah I know us loyalist will buy it but...).

2.) They will contradict EVERYHING that they have been marketing!

3.) iOS 7 added many gestures that only make sense with one handed use.

4.) Lastly, why should they? You were going to buy it anyways!

Apple is dying a slow death? Based on what? Selling more smartphones than anyone not names Samsung? The same Samsung that had YOY revenue and profit declines for the last three quarters?

The thing that baffles me is that Apple has likely been working on this since prior to the 5s release. They're this close to a launch announcement and they haven't ironed out production issues? They are still concerned with the Safire display?

This is nothing new for them. It seems to happen with regularity.

It looks amateurish.

Tim Cook is the worst CEO because according to an "analyst" a product that we don't even know if it exists is delayed? WTF?

You are making an assumption that in-cell technology is inferior. Developing new manufacturing processes are essential to advancement of new technologies. Do you think Samsung had high yields on its display tech right away?

We have NO idea if a 5.5" phone was ever really in the works. We still don't know if it exists. Just because some analyst says there are production issues and every rumor site rushes to publish it doesn't make it fact.

Exactly. If Apple want to make a 5.5", they'll make it.

There will be no sapphire screen on either new iPhone, that will be the feature they use for the iphone 6s.

With every pre-product launch the same claims are made, going be this notion you'd think Apple decides the specifications and physical form of their devices a month before their final release date.

I'll be willing to give these leaks for the 5.5 until Early-ish-mid August, if we don't have any part leaks that regards the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, it's completely fake. It'd be nice to have, sure, but it isn't something Apple would do.

4.7 is a perfect size for the iPhone, anything more would be silly.
