“Historically, Apple (AAPL) has released a new iPhone roughly every 12 months. But that could change with the iPhone 6,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily.

“A source in the tech supply chain in China and Taiwan told Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White that the iPhone 6 is expected to launch in the second or third quarter of 2014,” Seitz reports. “If the iPhone 6 comes out at the start of that window, in April, it would be just seven months after the Sept. 20 debut of the iPhone 5S and 5C handsets. Since the first iPhone launched in June 2007, the quickest Apple has come out with a new iPhone has been 11 months.”

Seitz reports, “Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Chris Caso said Wednesday he expects the iPhone 6 to come out late in Q2 2014, which would put it nine months after the iPhone 5S and 5C… In a research report Thursday, White said the bigger screen iPhone would have a display approaching 5 inches, vs. 4 inches for the current iPhone 5 series.”
