Another reason could be the all important money. Apple wants to first herd the sheepfold into parting with their money by buying the 4.7" iPhone. Then early next year, bring out 5.5" and fleece the sheepfold once again. Then later in the year, the iPhone 4.7S and the iPhone 5.5S.
By that time, Apple could probably be rich enough to redeem what the United States owe from China and own the whole country completely. LOL!
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2014Indeed, like Samesung, Apple should release a phone every week, with a slightly bigger or smal... moreer,and exactly which fruit lodo using american firm is it that samsung have copied their business and ethics from,who are the said firms single largest parts supplier,who have had a very close relationship for years with.

no.the reason is also feedback from test groups.
flopple owners/users are so vain that they think bigger device looks silly when used as phone upto ear.
its cos they have smaller than average heads for their smaller brains,flopple does it all for them,just think a flopple ipiss medical monitor telling you to go have a piss and a dump,ah the fun of the flopple walled world view.
also,remember that flopple have been slagging off and down larger displays since the htc hd2, even for flopple its going to be a bit difficult to hold down the cries of hypocrisy,there is also their artificail limit on the human eye can see,according to steve gods,human eye fails higher than 300 ppi,pity he never talked to the guys who printed all the fat glossy posuer coffee table boooks,printed decades ago at anything upto 2800 ppi.
flopple are on their way diwn and out,they will cling on for a while,but they have yankee problem of believing their own bullshite,they have always been far less relevant than they and industry think and will end up as a small niche yankee firm selling only inside america and will have blown 100 of billions of dollars in less than 3 decades.
flopple are walking dead.they will not/cannot admit it but all their secret market research tells them to be ready for a huge contraction,soon.
very easy to go from (supposed)hero to zero.just believe what folk say to your face and ignore what you hear whipered about you.
and i will not miss them or their methods,they have done far more damage than they should ever been allowed to,but then thats america and americans for you.
likely because that amount of aluminium, the phone woudl bend and break easily
If this is true, then I'd say it's a smart move. As much as I dislike Apple, they have ny respect for not jumping on the big screen bandwagon. 4.7 for a phone is perfect. And anything more than 5.1 is a tablet. Less models of high-quality devices is a better strategy than trying to cover every possible market niche, or even invent new ones to push sales...

Guess what Android, Window even BlackBerry have had screens bigger than 4 "
When it does get announced it will be exciting as a film director explaining his new film Romeo and Juliet
How Apple can call themselves leaders and not be able to make a phone to the same as specifications to that have been used for over 2 years
large screen iphone 6 worth waiting for .. samsung can never have loyality of iphone customers ..iphones miles superior to samsung..
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2014Was never going to happen.. Just media bull***p..
That probably might be the real reason. It's hard enough for them to market that the new 4.7" screen size is the "new perfect".
Can't have two perfect sizes at 4.7" and 5.5" at the same time. The Zealots can't handle it when the sane attack them for lulz later on.
5.5" 6.5" screen lovers plz.... dont loose ur hope if u need gooood quality you hav to be patience...... we apple nevertheless.

The 5.5 inch phone is so out if the ballpark for Apple it would infact be competing with itself and would have really poor sales when compared to the IP6
Release the IP6, then release the IP6AIR seperately later as another event.
It did seem odd that there was TWO iPhones so I doubt the IPhone6air will be bigger phone of the 4.7" IP6
Like all phone makers specs will be different slightly
The screen issues a reason to separate the launch dates

They should cheat in benckmark scores, pay bloggers to troll rivals, and use confidential court documents in licensing negotiations with third parties.
If this is the level of "excellence" you think Apple should compete with, then I am glad that Apple does its own thing.
Its not gud news for samsung its gud thing for apple that they spare from one more flop product.
Apple don't need to a phablet, just something larger than 4 inch. Hopefully they can get a higher resolution display as well. I have a galaxy s5 , Nokia Lumia 1520 and iphone s5 and find the iphone easier to carry around and use and I am a big man.
apple is just playing safe because they don't want to compete with note 4 and get their ass kicked
Apple do need a Phablet for IOS fans...will be a big mistake to leave all the big screen phones fun just for Android fans. The phone screen landscape has changed...4" screens are considered small while 4.7" to 5.2" screens are now the normal size considering bezels are minimal or the device has a 75+% screen to bezel ratio. LG with the G2/G3, Sharp and a few others are doing a good job at keeping bezels to a minimum.

Loved the Note 3 and was hoping Apple would come out with something that size, was excited but if they don't they are gonna lose an Apple fanboy!!
iPhone 3-> 3gs -> 4 -> 4s -> 5....-> 6(5.5in) / Note 4
iPad 2 -> 3 -> iPad mini -> iPad Air.... -> Tab S?
Feel sad to leave Apple but maybe it is time :(
