Now that the iPhone 5s announcement is behind us, and the iPad 5 and mini 2 launches seem imminent, what's in store for us from Apple for next year? Korean media seems to have the answer, confirming with its own sources once again that the team from Cupertino is working on a larger screen iPhone, even larger iPad, and a smart watch...

Yes and I think unlike the competition they should stop there. The way things are being released, I fear that in two years a phone will be as big as a tablet. I

5 inch plus is too big - in my opinion the Nexus 4 is pretty much the sweet spot in size for a phone.

Sorry to disappoint you Dan, but most of the boos and frowns over small screened devices on Apple and Nokia device came from Android fans.
You know, the usual "I got a big d¡ck, where's yours?" kind of bully?

Well I must say that's unfortunate even if the fanboyism exists in the digital world we still must care for the emotions and keep the arguments and views as much clean as possible at least in language side. #Respect the platform that we are able to share our views.

I guess Apple will finally have to put an HD screen on an iPhone to keep the "retina PPI" I mean its almost 2014.. 4k TVs 1080p androids everywhere and the little iPhone isn't even 720

if 'years' is listening to customers, i'm ok not being a iFan

- took years to get MMS
- took years to get copy-n-paste
- took years to get a widescreen hd phone
- took years to have voice control
- took years to get multi-tasking
- took years to get a decent sized phone.. oh wait
- took years to get a decent navigation app.. oh wait again...
- took years to customize your desktop/phone anyway you like... oh man, just get a flipping android already

I like my companies of choice to 'react' to whats hot in the market, react, create, better, best the competition... Google and MS are two prime examples of this sort of actions... not wait and wait and wait until they can maximize their profits at the expense of not offering their customers state of the art tech and features..

and bullcrap, apple waits until it's 'perfects it'... apple maps and siri took 3 years (and longer) of google maps and google voice actions dominating the market (with apple having no viable alternative to their customers) and neither of those was perfected and still not perfected, not by a country mile. Apples only agenda is making maximum profits (every other year 'S' hits are another prime example) giving people what they want is generally a 2-3 year waiting game and ya know what, this little appledoesn't supporter says apples shtick is catching up to them and it's just doesn't work except with the most ardent iFollowers...

Ofcourse, a hybrid ios UI (a mix of iPad and iPhone UI) on a big screen is all I have ever wanted. As in instead of more rows, the icons could be more spaced out and the icons could be bigger and dynamic like the clock and calendar.

What abyss do these stupid rumors crawl out from? They're not going to go from 0 to 180 just like that. It took them 5 years to even bump up that minuscule display from 3.5 inches up to 4. I'm guessing if that happens, it'll be around the 4.3-4.5 inch realm, realistically speaking.

I think everyone knew they would finally cave in to customers demand for a larger screen on the iPhone 6, but I imagined they would have gone to 4.5"-4.7".
