iOS 14 Code Reveals There Will Be a Larger 'Plus' Model of the Low Cost 'iPhone 9'

Code references found in a leaked build of iOS 14 reveal that Apple is working on a larger 'Plus' model of the rumored low cost 'iPhone 9'.

Apple was expected to unveil a 4.7-inch iPhone SE successor at a press event on March 31st; however, that event is cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. The device could still be launched in April and references found by 9to5Mac suggest that a larger 5.5-inch 'Plus' model may debut at the same time.

It seems that Apple is also working on a larger version of the iPhone 9, which may be named iPhone 9 Plus (or at least the Plus moniker of whatever Apple dubs this line). That would make sense considering that these iPhones should replace the iPhone 8 lineup, which features the 4.7- and 5.5-inch versions.

According to the code, both devices will run the A13 Bionic chip, the same processor found in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. They will feature a solid state Home button and Touch ID rather than Face ID. Additionally, they'll support Apple Pay, Express Transit, and background NFC tag scanning.

It's unclear what name Apple will give the new model. For now you'll hear it referred to as either the iPhone 9 and or iPhone SE 2. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for updates.
