Apple will release two different sized iPhones this year, with both a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 looking to 'fight back' at a range of larger Android phones from the likes of Samsung, LG and Sony.

While it has become almost common knowledge that Apple would launch a larger iPhone this year, Bloomberg has reportedly got hold of absolutely-air-tight-this-is-definitely-not-a-rumour information which confirms that suppliers in China have already started building two new iPhones.

The two new handsets will both feature larger screens with the main focus being on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 whilst there will also be a 5.5-inch handset designed to compete with the Galaxy Note and LG G3.

What is not known is whether it will also keep a 4-inch version of the phone going as well - perhaps the 5C or an upgraded version of it.

As Daring Fireball's John Gruber notes, would Apple really want to ditch its immensely popular small form factor on the assumption that everyone would prefer a larger device?

With Google set to unveil its latest version of Android at Google I/O 2014 as well as a new range of smart watches Apple is now under scrutiny as to whether it'll unveil the much reported but ultimately speculation-based iWatch.

Apple recently unveiled its latest mobile operating system iOS 8 which comes with a number of features that hint at the iWatch being a possibility including the ability to answer your phone on any Apple device including a Mac.
