Apple boosts screen sizes

APPLE will release two more iPhone models with larger screens this year in an attempt to boost demand in Asian markets.

The two models will have screens of 4.5 and five inches, according to the Wall Street Journal, up from the four inch screens that Apple currently produces. The phones already had their screens enlarged in 2012, from 3.5 inches.

The firm is attempting to gain more traction in emerging Asian markets, where larger phone screens are popular.
