For most iPhone 5 owners, the release of Apple’s next handset probably won’t mean a lot since most of us are strapped with two-year contracts that won’t expire until mid-2014. However, it looks like the delay could be well worth it, according to Financial Post. Jefferies analyst Peter Misek believes that Apple is already prepping an iPhone 6 with a larger screen that is set to launch in June 2014. This isn't the first time that we've heard rumors of a super-sized iPhone. Rather, it reflects a changing narrative that suggests the larger phone isn't coming in 2013, as was once believed. Instead, Apple is expected to unveil a slightly updated iPhone 5, the so-called "iPhone 5S," and a budget phone. With regards to the iPhone 5S, the analyst says that Apple's seventh generation handset will come in multiple colors, and include an upgraded processor, and camera. It could also come with a fingerprint scanner. Again, these specifications are in line with what others have been saying in recent months. Misek said that “internal delays” will push the iPhone 5S launch until this fall.
