Apple is expected to unveil at least one larger-screen iPhone at a launch event on 9 September, numerous reports have stated.

Though no confirmation has come from Apple, several reports citing people familiar with the matter have claimed that Apple will unveil its next generation of iPhones at the event.

The new models are widely expected to include an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display, and perhaps a larger ‘iPhablet', which could feature a 5.5-inch display. However, other sources have said that the largest model could be delayed until next year.

Whatever is launched, though, it is generally accepted that Apple will unveil a new iPhone in September, given its track record of previous product launches. The cycle usually begins with an unveiling event in early September, a few weeks after which the products go on sale.

Apple has faced mounting criticism over the size of its current generation of iPhones, which sport 4-inch displays. In the face of numerous Android-based handsets coming out with 5-inch-and-above displays, the iPhone is seen by many as too small.

Despite this, the company still reported strong iPhone sales in the second quarter of 2014, posting growth of 12.7% year-on-year.
