Taiwanese publication Digitimes reports that the company will release the 5.5-inch model of the upcoming iPhone 6 only a few months after the 4.7-inch version.
The site dismisses the idea that the larger iPhone faced production issues.
The explanation is actually a strategic decision by Apple to avoid competition between the two devices.
The report adds that yield rates have not been a problem for the iPhone or for the rumored iWatch.
The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Cupertino is preparing between 70 and 80 million iPhone 6 units to anticipate the demand.
