    BGR reports that a larger screened iPhone 6 will debut in June 2014. By that time it will be competing with the HTC 4, and the Samsung Galaxy S 12.

    Every day that site posts a date and a rumor. And, each post contradicts the previous post. One day there is no larger iPhone, the next day there is one. One day Apple is not doing so well, the next day Apple has a bright future.

    The staff there must be bi-polar.

    Right on track after milking the iPhone loyalist with the iPhone 5 and probable 5S. THEN start competing with the larger phones that everyone else is selling like hotcakes. Even blackberry for cryin' out loud. Never thought Id see that!

    Are we talking about analysts who disagree with each other, or individual analysts who reverse themselves overnight?

    apple is seriously stupid and starting to piss me off.

    consumers want a bigger screen, 4" is not enough for some people. give us options damnit. have a 4" iPhone (for those losers who cry about the possibility of a bigger iPhone) and a 5" iPhone.

    Must have been. Can't see any other explanation for this.

    Some of us don't need phones the size of a tablet.

    If they did that then people would demand a 6" iPhone..then a 7" iPhone..

    the phone is fine for me.

    ok good for you, they're fine for you but for a lot of people they are not.

    the world doesn't revolve around you, you know. and while they make a bigger phone, i'm sure they'll keep your tiny phone around.

    in fact, i'm positive that once you lay your hands on a bigger device, you'll probably want it.

    some apple fanboys make me laugh. "i'm using 4" screen because THAT IS WHAT APPLE MADE SO I AM USING IT NOW END OF STORY".

    let me guess, you felt the same way with prior iPhone's? "zommgg not 4", 3.5" is good enough"

    get outta here with your arrogance.

    the HTC one is the phone to beat, as far as hardware goes. But still has the superior ecosystem. That's the main reason why I'm not changing anytime. But it will be nice to see a 4.5" phone from apple. People have to realize choices are a good thing.

    There are always the ones who want something in between. Some might want to make phone calls with the same device they use as a tablet (i.e. they want a "phablet"), and you cannot do that with the iPad mini.

    OP. I am just really disappointed with Apple's glacier like progress with their Iphone. When you look around and see an HTC One, a GS4, and a probable October release for a Nexus 5, yet the best we can hope for is a spec bump Iphone 5 S later this year. I have this mental image of outfits like Samsung and HTC and LG/Google burning the midnight oil, on a war footing, to take control of the Iphone industry, while it is business as usual at Apple. Lights out at 5 pm, get on your bicycle, get some fruit, and pedal home.

    i really like the htc one and want to get it, but i hate the software on it.

    i would like to see a 5" iPhone from apple. .5" increase wouldn't be enough for most people.

    What makes you think Apple is "leaking" rumors? You do realize 99.9% of things you read about Apple are guesses and assumptions from personnel outside of Apple.

    A lot of people? According to Android Developers, XLarge phones make up a tiny 4.9% of all Android phones. Clearly, most people (79.7% of us) want a normal size phone. The world won't revolve around you, and Apple isn't going to make a different size phone for the 4.9% of people.

    Also, you don't need to tell me that I would fall in love with a bigger device because I have tried a Galaxy Note 2 and I hated it.

    If you want a device with a larger screen size, go buy an Android.

    I disagree.

    Oh sure I'm very disappointed in Apple's choice to recycle the three year old form factor with an outdated display size.

    But make no mistake, Apple is not stupid. They are brilliant, cunning, and very skilled at spinning a tale till people believe them. No other company has consistently made obscenely high profits while convincing their worshipers they are not overcharging.

    People like myself who see their game clearly, still get sucked in cause its the only game in town if you want an authentic Mac. Or iOS device for that matter.

    At the end of the day, Steve Jobs had one thing in common with Jerry Garcia. The ability to create a lasting ever growing cult like following.

    first of all, don't tell me what to do. if i wanted a large screen while sacrificing in the software department, i would have done that long time ago.

    secondly, XL phones make up 4.9 of all android phones because there's a billion different screen sizes. now what falls under XL? is it over 4" or 5"?

    stupid article is stupid, just like your post. get outta here with your pro-apple nonsense.. they're clearly starting to fall behind but NOPE BECAUSE IT'S APPLE THEY DO EVERYTHING RIGHT AND NOTHING IS EVER WRONG.

    like i said. get outta here with your crap
