Analyst says larger iPhone 6 planned for June 2014
In Apple's recent quarterly earning call, CEO Tim Cook implied that Apple wouldn't be launching any new products until this fall. That meant that analysts shifted the dates on various products. Now, we expect the iPhone 5S this fall, and one analyst thinks that Apple is still going to move to a faster release cycle, meaning the iPhone 6 would be planned for June 2014.

The prediction comes from Peter Misek, an analyst with Jefferies. Misek is an analyst who is never afraid to make predictions about Apple, and not only is he saying that the iPhone 6 is planned for June 2014, but that it is planned to be larger than the iPhone 5. Of course, the iPhone 5 is still on the smaller end of screen sizes these days at 4", when much of the flagship competition comes in between 4.5" and 5". Tim Cook has said that devices of that size are built with too many "tradeoffs", which is the same reasoning behind why the iPad mini is 7.9" rather than 7". Apparently, Apple will have found fixes for those tradeoffs by June of next year for the iPhone 6.

Additionally, Misek seems to like the leaks from KDDI that came out about the upcoming iPhone 5S saying that the device may contain a fingerprint scanner (though he doesn't seem to agree with a summer release for the device.) Misek finishes off his predictions with the requisite "well, duh" predictions that are obviously going to be true, but an analyst has to toss them in to offset the bigger claims that will likely turn out wrong. Misek says the 5S will have a better processor, better camera, and new color options. Well, duh...

Must say the "phablet" sized one looks hideous with all the icons. Just an app drawer.

We represent Apple Inc., the internationally famous “COOL” technology company and the designer, distributor, and/or manufacturer of a broad array of trendy/cutting-edge goods and services in the technology field. Since 2013, Apple has been using the “iPhone6” trademark in connection with it’s ultra modern iPhone.

It has come to our attention that Michael H. has been using the words “Larger iPhone6” in a article on a website noted as Phonearena.com. Michael’s use of the words “Larger iPhone6 in 2014” is likely to confuse consumers into thinking that other phones have large screens and are better then our trendy iPhone.

Accordingly, Apple herby demands that you immediately cease all use of the word “iPhone6” and agree to refrain from such future uses. Apple takes protecting its coolness factor seriously and expects your prompt confirmation that you will comply with our demands as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,
Leaders in innovation, Apple Inc.

I never understood the point of 'S' iPhones really, if they made a different looking iPhone in a two year gap with considerable differences I would consider maybe.

S stands for "Same" As in basically nothing has changed.

Not really understanding how a bigger phone is a trade off but when it comes to tablets, smaller is a trade off. There's plenty of devices that have proven this to be incorrect so it sounds like someone too intent on staying in a comfort zone than actually making something equivalent to the competition. In the end, Apple is becoming too predictive. They need to do something unexpected and exciting instead of overselling the same old same old.

For the actual prediction, analysts, enough said. BTW, anyone happen to know his percentage of being correct with his predictions?

Analysts say a lot of things..... Majority are... Well.... Not true....or in this case clearly obvious and new story from 2 months ago...

All the analysts do is speculated to keep investors interested and fans hanging on ... this time 13 months out. I wouldn't be surprised if they are paid to write them or looking out for their own self interests. ... as share holders.

SGS4 or the HTC One are here now so enjoy them, I'm actually enjoying the Ascend Mate from the sleeping giant Huawei at the moment. Try different things NOW and you will be amazed at what's out there.

I've gotta say, with the current UI, an iPhone bigger than 4.5 will look ridiciously...ugly

1) People that are on the fence aren't going to wait 14 months, they will just jump ship
2) People that will wait will now have no reason to get whatever crappy incrememntal 5s comes out. Whatever phone they release next will definitely have the worst sales to date of any iphone thats come out.

Idk if they keep getting their trash kicked like they are they might. They might actually give the user what they really want, not what Apple wants them to have *gasp*

Lol. June 2014. Way to be 2 years late to the game Apple. I see why you can't hold customers anymore. Oh yeah, and because your OS barely changes and your hardware is outdated. Don't forget how everything is over priced.
