5"+ iPhone, 12.9" iPad and an iWatch with LG flexible OLED to come from Apple next year

5"+ iPhone, 12.9" iPad and an iWatch with LG flexible OLED to come from Apple next year
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 claims 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.

The new iPhone screen size is now pegged for "at least" 5 inches, as we've heard before from the Wall Street Journal sources that Apple is toying with 5-6" sizes. It might be stopping at the low end of that spectrum to keep things manageable, or simply keep the iPhone 5s and 5c around as the 4" alternatives. 

The larger iPad is said to be exactly 12.9", which jibes with numerous reports that Apple will have bigger iPad to battle the influx of Win 8 touchscreen hybrids and convertibles that is populating stores these days. The source mentions that this larger iPad will be aimed at the education (e-book) and enterprise markets, which makes sense.

Finally, the iWatch OLED display is said to be made by LG, and this coincides with a recent claim Apple has a working 1.5" prototype of the smart watch in testing that uses 1.5" flexible display panel. Where there's smoke, there's fire, and next year might see the biggest overhaul of Apple's mobile lineup since things started in 2007.
