Tim Cook has shrugged off questions about a bigger, badder iPhone. The Apple boss promised "great things" but wouldn't confirm or deny rumours of a larger screen for the hotly-anticipated iPhone 6.

As reported by Bloomberg, Cook was asked about a larger iPhone when he turned up in Beijing to launch the iPhone on China Mobile, the biggest mobile network in the world.

China Mobile has around 763 million customers, making it a lucrative target for Apple. With just about everybody in the west rocking a smart phone in their pocket, Apple, Samsung and the rest of the mobile industry are increasingly looking to emerging markets like China and India to keep their profits up.

The iPhone is already available on rival network China Telecom.

Last year Cook wrote a letter to employees praising 2013's "innovation" including the iPhone 5S, iOS 7 and the new Mac Pro. "We have a lot to look forward to in 2014," Cook hinted, "including some big plans that we think customers are going to love."
