WSJ: Larger iPhones coming, iPhone 5c to be cut?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting Apple will release two new iPhones with larger screens this year. The two new handsets will feature displays larger than 4.5” and 5”, respectively. “The smaller of the two models is further along in development, and is being prepared for mass production,” the Journal reports. “The larger-screen version is still in preliminary development.” The phones will not feature curved displays.

An initial reading of the story also appeared to suggest the iPhone 5c would be scrapped, but the language may only suggest that the new iPhones will feature metal casings, instead of the 5c-style plastic casings. Both new iPhones are expected to be released in the second half of this year. Apple declined to comment.
