Apple may be planning to launch the iPhone 6 in May 2014, BGR reports,
which would be much sooner than expected.
Sources in the supply chain for the company said the new larger-sized iPhone 6 would use a 20nm processor, Digitimes reported

BGR said industry rumors have suggested the next iPhone will have a display somewhere around 5 inches, which is bigger than the iPhone 5s.
That larger display puts the iPhone in competition with Samsung, which started the “phablet” fashion with the Galaxy Note last year. It’s unusual for Apple to follow a trend and also to release another iPhone so quickly.
Digitimes also said supply sources confirm that Apple will release a 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet designed for educational uses.
Although both innovations on Apple products are just rumors, 9 To 5 MAC reported that company CEO Tim Cook told employees in a holiday memo
this week that big things await in 2014.
“We have a lot to look forward to in 2014, including some big plans that we think customers are going to love,” Cook said in the memo, which is reprinted in full on 9 To 5.
In most of the memo, Cook talked about Apple’s successes. “First and foremost, we introduced industry-leading products in each of our major categories in 2013, showing the breadth and depth of innovation at Apple,” Cook wrote. His list of successes included the iPhone 5s, iOS 7, OS X Mavericks and the iPad Air and mini with retina display. Oh, and 50 billion downloads from the Apple store.
As rumors of a new iPhone coming out in May spread online, speculation abounded. The parody Twitter account for "Big Bang Theory"’s Sheldon Cooper, pulling the $800 figure from unsubstantiated rumors that started about the cost of the iPhone 6, posted:
