If this is Wednesday, or any other day of the week for that matter, then it must be time for new rumors about the latest, greatest and largest Apple iPhone ever. Suppliers in China will begin mass production of two new iPhones next month, according to Bloomberg news service, which cited "people familiar with the plans."

A new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will be accompanied by a larger, phablet-ish iPhone with a 5.5-inch display -- both larger than the 4-inch displays on the iPhone 5S and 5C. Apple is "ramping up" on the two larger devices in the face of increased competition, Bloomberg reported.

Which Rumor to Believe

When it comes to the iPhone 6, the rumor mill seems to always be in overdrive. Just last month, the Taiwan-based Economic Daily News reported that, based on information from people with knowledge of what Apple intends to do, the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 would be released along with an iPhone with a 5.5- or 5.6-inch display -- just slightly larger than the 5.5-inch display Bloomberg's sources mentioned.

Then on Wednesday, a new report from Chinese Web portal Tencent, which cited unnamed sources, pegged the launch date for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 as Friday, Sept. 19. Additionally, Deutsche Telekom is said to be contacting customers and telling them that the iPhone 6 will launch on Sept. 19, and will be available on that date in Deutsche Telekom stores and also from Apple.

If the rumors prove true, which is likely, Apple will be playing follow the leader when it comes to smartphones with larger screen displays. The tech giant is readying for the launch of its new iPhones after rivals like Samsung and HTC released smartphones with displays that sport screens as large as 5.7 inches.

Users seem to be attracted to smartphones with larger screens. For example, in China, 40 percent of Android devices sold in China in 2014 boasted display sizes of more than 5 inches, according to Forrester Research.

'Rounder and Thinner'

Apples' new iPhones will be "rounder and thinner than previous models," according to Bloomberg. Production of the 5.5-inch iPhone will be limited initially because it is more complicated to produce than the smaller version, a source told Bloomberg.

In November, Bloomberg reported that Apple was developing new iPhone designs including the bigger screens with curved glass and enhanced sensors that can detect different levels of pressure. The material, which is called 2.5-dimension glass, allows manufacturers to taper the edges of the screen where the bezels meet the frames of the smartphones.
