According to Venture Beat, a report from Japan is pointing to iPhone 5S production, with Sharp, Japan Display and LG beginning their screen production runs in June of this year. The screen production timetable line up with Tim Cook’s earlier statements, where he indicated that there would be no new product launches until after the summer.
Apple added Sharp to the list of screen manufacturers last year in an attempt to met the overwhelming demand for its devices. Japan Display and LG have manufactured screens for Apple devices for some time now. The Japanese report indicates that the screen size for the next iteration of Apple’s iPhone will be the same size and shape of the iPhone 5, which leads us to believe that Apple is producing an iPhone 5S, and not an iPhone Mini which has been rumored for some time.
What exactly Apple has in store for us is still a surprise, and just because this report points to a screen size the same as the iPhone 5 does not mean that an iPhone mini is not in the cards.
