There has been plenty of back and forth regarding display size and other design elements that we can expect to see in Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6. While nothing is set in stone until Apple makes its highly anticipated announcements, obviously, several sources that have been reliable in the past have each painted a fairly similar picture. From the looks of things, we can expect two new iPhone models in 2014, an iPhone 6 and a new larger iPhone with a display that climbs into phablet territory. The exact size of each display had been debated by plugged-in industry watchers as Apple toyed with different designs, but a new report claims that the iPhone 6 design has now been finalized.


We have heard from a number of different sources in recent months who have claimed to have inside knowledge of what size display Apple intends to use in the iPhone 6. DisplaySearch said it will measure 4.7 inches diagonally with a 1,600 x 900-pixel resolution while well-respected Apple analyst Peter Misek said it will measure 4.8 inches. KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo, who has the best track record in the business when it comes to Apple’s device plans, would only say that the iPhone 6′s screen will measure between 4.5 and 5 inches diagonally.


Much of the mystery was attributed to the fact that Apple was testing iPhone 6 designs with a few different screen sizes, but now Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri says all that testing has been completed.


In a note to clients on Wednesday picked up by AppleInsider, Arcuri stated that the iPhone 6′s design has been “locked down” and the phone will feature a 4.8-inch display. The analyst also says that Apple’s new iPhone will support faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity, and that Apple is planning ”key software innovations” in iOS 8 that will be a big focus on the new iPhone. That would certainly be fantastic news, considering iOS 7 was all about renovation rather than innovation.


Apple is widely expected to launch the iPhone 6 this fall, though one recent report claimed that it will debut this summer at Apple’s annual WWDC conference instead.
