Is Apple working on a curved iPhone 6 screen?

12 Nov 13

Apple has barely counted the dollars from its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C releases last month, yet according to recent reports, Cupertino is hard at work on two new models.

Believed to be the iPhone 6, news source Bloomberg reports that the tech giant is developing bigger screens with curved glass and enhanced sensors.

Citing a person familiar with the plans, the website claims: "Apple Inc. (AAPL) is developing new iPhone designs including bigger screens with curved glass and enhanced sensors that can detect different levels of pressure."

With screens of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, the unnamed source claims the two new models would be Apple’s largest iPhones, and would approach in size the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 that Samsung debuted in September.

"The new Apple handsets are still in development and plans haven’t been completed, the person said, adding that the company probably would release them in the third quarter of next year," Bloomberg adds.

Unsurprisingly, Cupertino refused to comment on the speculation.
