Yesterday it was reported the iPhone 5s had entered full production and today sites are reporting production is delayed. When there’s no Apple news it’s obviously time to start making things up.

A report claims Apple is delaying release of the iPhone 5S due to a screen-size specification change

This time it’s Cnet quoting once again an “anonymous source”.

Apple will delay the release of the iPhone 5S in order to give it time to make a switch to a larger screen size, according to a report from BrightWire News, citing sources at suppliers. Commercial Times, via Bloomberg, is also reporting the rumor.

Apple has decided to up the screen size from 4 inches to 4.3 inches, the report claimed.
“[Apple] halted processor production for [the] iPhone 5S in May,” according to BrightWire news. That initial iPhone 5S design had a 4-inch screen.
The 5S was expected to hit the market in September or October but has been pushed back to the end of the year, both reports said.

Budget iPhones will be released by October, as expected. That design was not changed.

Large-screen phones with displays bigger than 4 inches are catching on fast. It’s remotely possible that Apple believes it needs to respond to market demands more quickly.
Apple has not yet responded to a request for comment
