iPhone 5S Might Be Delayed Due To Last Minute Switch To 4.3″ Display [Rumor]

iphone-5-review-04-640x426Yesterday we reported that according to rumors, the iPhone 5S could face supply constraints at the beginning due to poor fingerprint scanner yields, although now a new report has suggested that the iPhone 5S could instead be pushed to 2014 instead, and this time it’s not because of fingerprint scanning technology, but rather Apple’s decision to bump the iPhone 5S’ screen from 4” to 4.3”. According to the rumor, processor production for the iPhone 5S was apparently halted back in May, suggesting that the delay might have happened awhile back, as opposed to recently according to recent rumors.

However could this be a hoax? Well if you remember there were several sightings of the iPhone 5S that shows it retained similar dimensions to the iPhone 5, thus giving us no reason to believe that Apple would suddenly decide to switch things up last minute. Of course it is also entirely possible the earlier rumors and leaked images were wrong all along, but it does seem to go against Apple’s habit of releasing “S” devices which are typically incremental upgrades of its predecessor. In any case this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Apple was planning a larger screened iPhone, but will it make its debut in the iPhone 5S? We guess we will have to wait and see, but until then take it with a grain of salt.
