What's next for Apple's iPhone line? Apple

Apple's iPhone 6 might be unveiled sooner than expected, a new report claims.

Apple will show off its new iPhone 6 at an event in August and release the device that same month, Taiwan-based Economic Daily News reported on Friday, citing people who claim to have knowledge of Apple's plans. At the same event, Apple will also show off a larger iPhone with a 5.5- or 5.6-inch display that will launch in September, the report said.

Rumors have been swirling for months, suggesting that Apple would launch two iPhones this year. It was initially believed that the iPhones would be unveiled in September , but if the Economic Daily News reports are true, Apple might have bumped up its schedule a bit.

For its part, Apple has remained tight-lipped on its plans. CNET has contacted the company for comment and will update this story when we have more information.
