A rumor is circulating claiming that Apple will delay the introduction of the next generation iPhone 5S. The rumor started with a publication called the Commercial Times, which claim that the next generation iPhone will be delayed until the end of the year. According to the publication, the delay is to allow Apple to fit the device with a larger 4.3-inch retina display.
The Commercial Times claims that Apple was previously scheduled to launch the iPhone 5S in September or October. The publication cites people in the semiconductor industry as the source for the timeframe.
Apple has made no official comments and none are expected. Apple is famous for its product security and never comments on rumors. The iPhone 5 is currently still selling very well even though Samsung has become the leading seller of smartphones overall.
