Apple preparing multiple iPhones, analyst expects September launch

Apple preparing multiple iPhones, analyst expects September launch
Apple is preparing to start mass production of multiple iPhone models in the June to July timeframe, according to Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty who met with key Apple suppliers in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Moreover, the new iPhones are expected to launch in September.

This report agrees with what we’ve just heard about Sharp kicking off screen production for a future Apple iPhone 5S device in June.

"After a slow start, iPhone 5, is now on track to meet carrier volume expectations and iPhone 4 price cuts could stimulate incremental demand near-term," Huberty wrote in a note. "Carriers see the opportunity for Apple to expand market coverage with 5-inch and lower-priced iPhones over time. TD-LTE licenses, and related phone launches, are expected by year-end."

Morgan Stanley has earlier lowered its Apple stock target to $540, but it is still valued “overweigh” meaning it’s a good investment at its current price.

In fairness to apple (gah now I have to go vomit and shower) the 4" screen is perfect for the dainty hands of the teenagers and women that use them XD

Get your facts straight; it's actually 4.01 inches!!! However, they will ALL only still work just on wi-fi (according to my un-named sources) ♥

Like that .01 inch really matters.

Until iOS gets a real makeover, with even 10 different models, Apple will still be trying to turn a sows ear into a silk purse. Unfortunately, it is looking like the real iOS makeover won't debut until v. 7.1. So maybe another year of same old, same old.

Even if they do, it's still a 4" screen. Apple should be targeting 4.5" screens, still a decent size to the phone without it being a Phablet.

Lol, didn't you read any article in recent time? Everyday there's news saying that the iOS 7 (not 7.1) will receive major overhaul of the UI.

Because you're mentally retarded, wear a helmet with lots of stickers, and have to wear water wings at all times. That or you're a geek.

iPhone mini: 4" Retina Display, 1 GB RAM, A6 processor, 8 MP Camera and new colors. iPhone 5S: 4" Retina Display, 2 GB RAM, Quad Core A7 processor, 13 MP Camera and a fingerprint sensor integrated in the home button. iPhone max: 4.8" Retina HD Display, 2 GB RAM, A7 processor, 13 MP Camera and a fingerprint sensor too. Legit.
