The iPhone 6 is almost upon us, and it looks like Apple is doubling down with two models.
The smaller one is still a bump up from the current 4-inch screen to 4.7 inches. Then there's the massive 5.5-inch screen to compete with the larger Android phones and phablets.
Aside from being larger than the iPhone 5s, the new models should be rounder and thinner.
Consumers have been gravitating toward larger-screen devices -- in China, 40 percent of mobile gadgets based on Google Inc.’s Android operating system that were sold in 2014 had display sizes of more than 5 inches, according to an estimate from Forrester Research.
Also important is a supposed new technology being developed by Apple called 2.5-dimension glass. Rumors say it will track the pressure of your fingers on the iPhone's screen. So in addition to where you press, it might make a difference how hard you press.
Coupled with the iOS 8 update, these phones should make for interesting competition against the latest phones from Android and Amazon.
