    Apple's iPhone 6 is expected to launch "as early as September", according to a new report from Japanese business newspaper Nikkei. The paper claims that the device is "expected" to be called the iPhone 6 and is "likely" to be offered in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display sizes, in line with circulating rumors.

    Earlier this week, UBS analyst Steve Milunovich claimed that the 4.7-inch version might be the only model to launch later this year, with a timeframe for the larger 5.5-inch version unclear.

    Apple will NEVER launch a 5inch or bigger smartphone. That would be far too big to deliver the experience Apple wants to give its customers. Anyone expecting this is going to be disappointed when iPhone 6 launches to the world.

    Maybe it was actually launched in September 2013 but all we just missed it.

    So an analyst regurgitates existing rumours as their own prediction and hey presto they too are now part of the news rumour mill that will later be regurgitated once more by another analyst and the cycle continues.

    Time for Retina+ to be introduced.

    It's been 4 years since Retina was introduced so it's definitely time for a higher resolution.

    I'd take the 5.5" model.
    I rarely make actual phone calls with my phone and my pants have no problems holding 12" so 5.5 ain't a problem.

    Gimme dat screen.

    A larger iPhone doesn't appeal to me, but I may be in the minority.

    I like a phone that fits in my pocket, but I can see the appeal to those who want one device that does it all, and is used as much a computer as a phone.

    Does anyone think there is a market for a combo iPad/iPhone? How big is too big?

    There is nothing in this article to suggest new information. It's a regurgitation of older rumors. Not sure this should even be on the front page…maybe the blog page.
