Apple’s next iPhone may not launch alone this year, as constant reports suggest the Cupertino-based company is gearing up to launch two different models. It turns out we may not have to wait for the larger of the two after all.

A new report from Bloomberg has revealed a pair of juicy tidbits, which coincide nicely with the two new iPhones were supposed to receive later this year. While initial rumors had suggested Apple could see a delay in the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 due to battery issues, this new report contradicts those claims. Turns out, the new iPhones could go into production on time in July, and see a simultaneous release in September.

The rumors have essentially been all over the place, just like they are every year. Of course, the only difference this year is the fact that there are more models to talk about, which means there is more to feed the rumor mill. The report from Bloomberg very well confirms what we’ve all believed from the get-go, whether or not there are two devices launching later this year: That Apple will have the iPhone 6 (or whatever they call it/them) ready to go for launch in September.

Either way, this is good news for anyone who has had their eye specifically planted on that larger, 5.5-inch iPhone. Have you decided which handset you plan on picking up?
