Apple Said to Plan Overhaul of IPhone With Bigger Screen

Apple Inc. is preparing to overhaul the look of its iPhone, three people with knowledge of the plans said, refreshing the company’s top-selling product amid competition from rivals such as Samsung Electronics Co.

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, has placed orders from suppliers in Asia for screens that are bigger than the 3.5-inch size now on the smartphone, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had worked closely on the redesigned phone before his death in October, one person said.
