Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted that the upcoming smartphone tagged as iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S will not sport a larger screen display at the Apple Q1 2013 earnings call.

Tim Cook also assured investors that Apple picked the right screen size when upgrading to a 4-inch Retina Display. He also carefully dodged talking about the rumours towards the next iPhone. However, this suggests that Apple will stick with its old screen size.

iPhone 5 sports a 4-inch Retina display, which is the most advanced display in the industry and no one comes close to matching the level of quality as the Retina display. This also provided a larger screen size for iPhone customers while considering the comfort of users.

Cook's insisting that 4-inch screen is better for one-handed use and larger screens will only make it more difficult. He also aimed at appeasing developers who would need to accommodate yet another screen size if Apple made a larger iPhone 5S or iPhone 6.

Apple sticking with its 4-inch screen may make it fall behind the competition since Android smartphones are sporting larger screen displays.

Other rumoured features of the next iPhone are super HD camera, massive internal storage of 128GB, Near Field Communication, a better battery and IGZO screen display.

The iPhone 6 may also become smarter and more secured with the aid of a fingerprint sensor. The rumour is included in note of KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a superb track record in iPhone rumours.

The rumour is backed by the fact that Apple bought AuthenTec in 2012. They were well known for their fingerprint scanning technology.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple had halved its orders for the iPhone 5. The report led Apple's share price to dip below $500 per share. From a high of $700 plus to sub $500 value of its stock has shaken the market analysts. The company that was thought to be the best bet in the market has lost around twenty five percent of its value in just over three months.
