When Donald Trump isn’t rolling in money, appearing on Fox News, or combing his fabulous toupee, he’s criticizing Apple.
Donald Trump thinks Apple should increase the iPhone’s screen size… or else. The real estate tycoon talked about how much he wants a larger iPhone on his Facebook page today. If Apple doesn’t wise up and release a phablet, The Trump says the company will “lose a lot of business.”
What Samsung screen is he referring to? The Korean smartphone maker recently announced the 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega, so maybe Donald wants something closer to 7 inches. Like the iPad mini?
Rumors have been saying that Apple is working on a larger iPhone for years, but Tim Cook and co. have repeatedly stated that the iPhone 5’s 4-inch display is the ideal size for a smartphone.
