The sketchiest iPhone rumors tend to fade away as an Apple launch date approaches, and this year is no exception. In July, a widely circulated online rumor predicted that Apple would delay the release of iPhone 5S in order to upgrade the device's screen size to 4.3 inches from four inches. The Commercial Times, a Taiwanese newspaper, reported the story, which was later picked up by Bloomberg. Well, the rumor didn't have legs, and most Apple watchers still expect the iPhone 5S to have a four-inch screen just like its predecessor.
The iPhone 6 might be different story, however. The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Apple is testing iPhone screens as large as six inches. If true, an iPhone phablet might not be far off.
