Citi Research said in a note to investors that Apple will be releasing iPhone 6 with a larger screen next year. The note also mentioned that the iPhone 5S production has been delayed by two to four weeks, while this will reportedly not push forward the September release time frame, it is expected that the iPhone 5S will be launched in limited numbers. According to Citi, the Retina display iPad mini has been delayed, instead of being released in the second half of 2013, it is going to be released in the fourth quarter of 2013. There have been rumors recently indicating towards a November launch of Retina iPad Mini.
The iPhone 5 brought a slight bump in screen size, bringing it up to 4 inches. Apple’s upcoming smartphone, iPhone 5S, is expected to retain this dimension. Analysts believe that iPhone 6 will have a 4.8 inch display and that it will be launched in the first quarter of 2014. The increase in display size can be seen as a response to Apple’s main market rival Samsung, which has consistently been increasing display sizes on its Android smartphones and phablets.
