For the first time ever, Apple unveiled two new iPhones on Tuesday, September 10, 2013, a traditional upgrade of its iPhone 5 as well as a simpler, cheaper version. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are a reaction to a changing smartphone market.

The latest talk, brought to us by Bloomberg, suggests the tech company is planning later next year to launch two new handsets sporting 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens.
