Is a larger phone screen finally on the horizon for Apple enthusiasts?

Appleinsider.com, citing a report from Korea's Digital Daily, reported the iPhone 6 will debut in June with a 4.7-inch display. A higher-resolution 5.7-inch version is expected to follow.

The bigger display is a change in philosophy for the largest maker of smartphones, which has lost some of its market share to competing larger-screen phones. The Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple launched the iPhone 5 in 2012 with a screen slightly larger than four inches.

Over the past three years, Samsung has become the market leader for big-screen smartphones, as its Galaxy S3 and S4 have bigger screens than the iPhone. Its Galaxy Note is enormously popular in Asia, with 38 million sold since 2011, according to Yahoo Finance. 

Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed the matter earlier this month, at China Mobile's headquarters. The world's largest carrier began selling the iPhone after two years of negotiations.

"We never talk about future things," Cook told Bloomberg News. "We have great things we are working on but we want to keep them secret. That way you will be so much happier when you see it."

While consumers wait for the iPhone 6's arrival, they can also wonder when they might see another long-rumored gadget: the iWatch.
