In the smartphone world, there seems to be a growing consensus that bigger is better. And, according to reports from Reuters, the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, Apple may be following suit.
The Journal reported on May 17 that "people familiar with the matter" said the new iPhone is likely to have a larger display than its predecessors, and that Apple has already placed orders for bigger screens from its suppliers in Asia.
The new screen is projected to measure "at least 4 inches diagonally," compared to prior generations' 3.5 inches. It’s not yet clear whether it's the size of the phone itself, or just its screen, that will account for the extra half-inch.
