"After our meeting with a tech-supply chain company, we walked away with the view that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in at least two screen sizes this summer and possibly three," says Topeka's Brian White. "We believe Apple is coming around to the fact that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone," he adds. Last week, the Apple (AAPL -0.6%) perma-bull/supply-chain tracker predicted a TV with a ring accessory will arrive. Meanwhile, Digitimes reports 5th-gen iPad production will commence in the July-August timeframe; that's in-line with earlier reports.

    Knowing apple they will charge additional $100 for slightly bigger screen with same specs as the smaller version. Similar to how they do with storage capacity.

    yes but knowing apple fans they will still buy it which could potentially mean continued high profits for apple and a ton of iPhone upgrades for all those people who want bigger screens.

     

    It's one of the reasons I left the apple ecosystem.

    Initially, people will definately flock to it thats for sure.
    Later on they will have to reduce the price/specs of their smaller screen phones and just keep the larger screen phone as premium with high end specs.
    I'll believe all this when something happens. No idea what's cooking at Apple. pun intended.

    Uh Oh! Another "we believe" article. If this is true, this could be one of the best kept secrets in the history of secret keeping.

    Although using a ring to control your tv is innovative, I have enough trouble trying to find the remote, much less a ring.

    That would eliminate the only advantage Samsung has over the I phone.

    He's got a spotty record with his product predictions but I suspect he is right on this one. What's so hard about introducing a larger screen in a phone, Cook should announce this at the next earnings call along with a nice dividend boost.
