Apple’s ‘iPhablet’ again rumored for 2013 debut

5-inch iPhone Release Date Rumor

Ahead of the holidays in 2011, Apple (AAPL) co-founder Steve Wozniak called his former company “arrogant” because it refused to accommodate users who wanted an iPhone with a larger display. Now, according to speculation from yet another industry watcher, Wozniak may finally get his wish two years later. In a recent note to clients picked up by Barron’s, Barclays Capital analyst Ben Reitzes said we should expect two new iPhones — an iPhone 5S and a new cheaper iPhone — to launch mid-year followed by a brand new iPhone with a 5-inch display sometime ahead of the holidays. An earlier report suggested a similar timeframe for the iPhone 5S and low-end iPhone, but said the larger model won’t launch until 2014.
