Apple planning to offer cheaper iPhone models

Apple is reportedly considering releasing cheaper iPhone models in a range of colours and with bigger screens in 2014, as part of its efforts to compete with Samsung.

The two new, bigger iPhones being proposed would boast a 4.7inch screen and a 5.7inch screen respectively, according to Reuters.

Apple is also reported to having approached several supply chains for the larger screens.

Reports reveal that modifications to the phone are still being discussed as the iPhone maker faces rising pressure in the smartphone market from the South Korean firm.
