There’s no shortage of rumors about Apple experimenting with different screen sizes for its next iPhone. Latest is from mostly unknown Chinese CTECH in which an unnamed source claims Apple is testing an iPhone 6 prototype with a 4.9-inch screen. Yeah sure, why not?

The claim may well be true – in fact, it almost certainly is. Apple is likely to be trying out a whole bunch of different screen sizes to test their usability, but the fact that someone has seen or heard of one of them tells us nothing about what size the company will finally settle on …

So what are you hoping for? Stick to the tried-and-trusted four inches? Go down the phablet route with a cross between an iPhone 5s and an iPad Mini? Or something in between?
