According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple is now testing larger screen iPhones and iPads. It appears that the Cupertino-based technology giant is about to add more colors and screen sizes to their iPhone and iPad range.
The Wall Street Journal report states that Apple has asked suppliers in Asia to offer larger screens for their iPhone and iPad.
“In recent months, Apple has asked for prototype smartphone screens larger than 4 inches and has also asked for screen designs for a new tablet device measuring slightly less than 13 inches diagonally,” Lorraine Luk writes in the WSJ. “The current iPhone 5 has a four-inch screen, while the iPad has a 9.7-inch screen. The iPad Mini, a stripped-down version of its tablet computer, has a 7.9-inch screen.”
The report also confirms recent report from The Tech Storm about the next-generation iPhones.
“At the same time, Apple has also been working with its manufacturing partners in Asia on a less expensive iPhone that will likely use nonmetal casing, to differentiate itself from the aluminum casing of high-end iPhone 5,” Lorraine Luk said. “The shells of both iPhone models will come in multiple color options.”
