At the end of 2013, the executives at Appleevaluated a number of competitive threats to their very profitable iPhone business and decided that the iPhone 6 would need to exhibit some fundamental improvements.
For example, they considered an increase in screen size, possibly to 5.5 inches, and a Bluetooth connection to an accompanying watch, which would display incoming emails and texts along with the number of incoming calls. Apple estimates that the more aggressive product launch will require a development budget of $ 1.5 billion versus $ 800 million for a more modest effort.
