Apple Testing Prototype iPhones With Six-Inch Screens, Not Expected This Year
Apple is testing prototype iPhones with significantly larger screens than current models, according to The Wall Street Journal. The report claims Apple has tested models with screens as large as six inches, a significant increase from the 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5, but they are not expected to be released this year.

MacRumors released a printable papercraft version of a 5-inch iPhone back in February of this year after other rumors of a larger iPhone surfaced.

I'm all for a bigger screen iPhone.
What's interesting to think about is what they will do with the specs of the device, usually larger devices have better specs simply because there is more internal space, but if they did that then the current iPhone size would no longer be the flagship.

6 inch is too BIG
Maybe 4.8 around there is perfect!

I am so ready for a larger screened iPhone. I don't want 6 inches but a 4.5-5 inch screen with edge to edge glass would set the mobile phone on fire. Time to launch this.
Would love to see something announced next week with an on sale date 3 months out...like they did with the original iPhone. Only way to stop the parts leaks. Give us the 5C and announce a new iPhone6 coming before Christmas. Would gladly wait for it.
I just fear this is what we will see next year...13 months is a long time to wait.

Wait. What if this is going to be the distinction between the 5c and the 5s? For all we know, the next iPhone could very well be the iPhone 6. After all, this is a Jobs-less Apple. (Remember new iPads haven't been released yet too. Also "un-Apple" like.)

Great news! I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Can't wait for September 2014.
