    I haven't checked into MacRumors or other Apple gossip in a year or two. After brief googling I didn't see an answer/guess so I'm asking here in hopes my question doesn't annoy anyone too badly! : - /

    I'm up for an upgrade but won't be buying a new iphone (I have the 4s now) until the screen size is larger (not just taller!!!).

    Any guesses as to when they might come out with a wider screen? Are they still thinking Fall for 5s? I might have read late in year for 5s. I guess the next one won't be an improvement screen wise. Maybe the one after that?

    Thanks!

    Then you're definitely not buying one for another year at least, if not the next 2-3 years.

    All rumors of 5S points to the same design as the iphone 5.
    So any redesign or screen change would likely to happen in the next iphone or 2014 the earliest.

    I think apple will keep 4 inh screen for the 6 and 6s too, because if rumors are true then they wanna replace the 4s with the low cost iPhone so their whole lineup would be 4 inch

    Thanks everyone. Damn...that really sucks. I can wait I guess. I love the 4s so I'll just have to be patient!

    Nothing wrong with i5, 4 inches is a perfect size.

    I don't know why everyone says they hate the tall design without even trying it! Once you've spent a week with the 4" screen, you'll find the 3.5" fat and small.

    (inb4 that's what she said... ;) )

    When the 6 is released probably next summer - barring any surprises.

    Perfect for you and me but not everyone. My father uses an Android phone because he can see the text better with putting on his reading glasses.

    Yeah I just find both the 3.5 and the 4" to feel confining. My eyes are fine for the most part but after seeing the Galaxies and such, I don't know why I'd want such a small screen. I also have older people in my life I'd like to show things to on the iphone and they can't see well enough on the 3.5. I don't think a half-inch is enough of an improvement on a screen that was already too small.

    Apple hasn't released anything new this year and introducing yet another repackaged "S" iPhone will do nothing good to their already struggling shares and upset shareholders. For that reason alone, I suspect that Apple will go against predictable "S" cycle this year and introduce redesigned iPhone 6 instead that will feature long awaited and way overdue bigger screen format.

    If I had a Nickel for every time someone asked about a bigger iphone I would be rich.
