    News emerging from the Far East today calls for Apple to unveil a new iPhone in May, presumably accelerating a more aggressive product release schedule for the tech maker in 2014.

    On Monday, DigiTimes reported that the next-gen iPhone will sport a larger display and use a 20nm processor manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

    The central focus of the new report, however, is Apple's tablet line. Sources tell the publication that Apple will likely release a 12.9-inch tablet in October "targeting North America's educational market."

    Apple's large-size tablet will be manufactured by Quanta Computer, and was originally expected to adopt either 12.9- or 13.3-inch panels, with recent rumors indicating that 12.9-inch has a better chance to be picked, the sources noted.
    Fueling Apple's ambitions in the larger-screen device arena is Samsung, which is said to be actively planning to launch a number of 12- to 13-inch tablets in the coming year.

    Yeah, I don't see the US release changing anytime soon. Remember when it was June or July, only to be pushed to Sept and then Oct? Providers really need to fix the 2 year standard. Remember when a 1yr contract was the norm..yeah lets get back to that!

    Someone reports this every year since they pushed the release time frame back to fall for the iPhone. It hasn't come true yet.

    But they get they're name in the news because of a ridiculous prediction. Sad day when people like this make the news.
