Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to This Week In Apple Rumors, our regular look at unconfirmed gossip and questionably sourced reports radiating from Cupertino. This week we heard speculation about an early September iPhone 5S release date, bigger iPhone and iPad displays, and what Apple may be building for cars. And we saw a video of what some believe is the plastic case for a new, less expensive iPhone. So without further ado, here's This Week in Apple Rumors.
Sept. 6 iPhone 5S Release Date
The iPhone 5S may be just over a month away. Cult of Mac relayed a report from the German blog iFun that says the next iPhone will be "coming to market" on Sept. 6. iFun cites a very credible source "to be taken seriously," according to a HuffPost translation.
If true, the release would come a bit earlier in the year than previous versions of the iPhone to hit the market. The iPhone 5 was unveiled on Sept. 12 of last year and went on sale in the U.S. nine days later. The iPhone 4S was announced on Oct. 4, 2011, and went on sale in the U.S. 10 days later.
The site also said to expect "two new device types, and this doesn't mean two different color or memory variations." Hmmm ... could it be two different screen sizes?
Bigger iPhone and iPad Displays
On Monday, The Wall Street Journal rekindled earlier reports that Apple is testing bigger screens for its iPhone and iPad. While the size of the rumored iPhone screen is unclear, the WSJ said Apple asked its suppliers "for screen designs for a new tablet measuring slightly less than 13 inches." The iPad has a 9.7-inch display and the iPhone 5 has a 4-inch display.
Apple finally took Donald Trump's advice, said Donald Trump.
