Apple rumor suggests iPhone 5S will have larger screen


Apple's next iPhone may have a larger screen.

According to Bloomberg, a report by the Taiwanese newspaper Commercial Times suggests that the tech giant has delayed updating its flagship smartphone until the end of the year because its screen will increase to 4.3-inches.

According the Times, Apple is scheduled to release its next iPhone in September or October, but production has been delayed because the design of the smartphone changed.

Apple announced the iPhone 5 last year on Sept. 12. Its 4-inch screen size was the first increase the tech giant has made since launching the original iPhone, which had a 3.5-inch screen. Pushing the release date to the end of the year would be off schedule for the company.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
