It hasn’t been long since Apple released its new iPhones this year. Traditionally the company releases new smartphones after a one year cycle, but if latest rumors are to be believed, perhaps we might get a new iPhone much sooner next year. Infamous Taiwanese trade publication Digitimes claims to have heard from supply chain sources that Apple is gearing up to launch the iPhone 6 in May 2014. It will supposedly have a 20nm processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company and a larger display, possibly around 5 inches.
There have already been a lot of rumors about Apple working on iPhones with larger displays, the company is expected to bump up the display size in 2014. However, it is widely believed that a new iPhones probably won’t be launched until fall 2014, May just doesn’t fit Apple’s traditional release cycles. Furthermore, the publication’s sources also believe that the 12.9 inch larger iPad is on its way next year as well, in October to be precise. According to the sources, this tablet is going to be geared towards educational markets in North America. Both of these products have been rumored in the past, and they’re supposed to be on track for a 2014 release, even if the timelines don’t add up right now. Apple CEO Tim Cook has already said that the company has “big plans” next year, wonder if they include setting away from years of tradition.
