Apple will launch the 4.7–inch and 5.5–inch iPhone 6 models simultaneously, after all. That’s the word from insiders speaking with Bloomberg, directly contradicting previous gossip that the larger phone would not hit shelves until some months after the smaller model.

Handing over details of Apple’s ‘private plans’, the site's sources said that Apple is readying the 5.5–inch iPhone 6 for manufacture and that it ‘may be available at the same time’ as the 4.7–inch phone.

Until recently, analysts and supply-chain sources claimed that problems sourcing enough display units and struggles with battery life would mean the 5.5–inch iPhone 6 would land months later than its counterpart.

Both new iPhones are said to rock a new design, based on the current iPad Air and iPad Mini.

Each phone will use Apple’s new iOS 8 software and come with improved internal specs. A launch date is expected to be announced in late September or early October.
