The next iPhone will be the largest one ever — and production starts next month, according to Bloomberg. The current top-of-the-line iPhone 5s features a 4-inch screen. While the iPhone is still a cash-cow for Apple, Samsung ships more phones worldwide, partly thanks to the appeal of mammoth phones like its 5.1-inch flagship device, the Galaxy S5. Now Apple is upping the ante with a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch version of its iPhone, "people familiar with the plans" told Bloomberg, and it could start shipping both of them starting in September.
