While much has been documented about this year’s iPhones looking different from their predecessors, it has been said that one model in particular will actually stand out in the this regard. And now, the company has just accidentally confirmed this.
Indeed in the latest turn of events, it has been revealed that Apple’s plan to release its smallest ever, bezel-less Apple iPhone has just been uncovered in the company’s new iOS 14 beta release. And it is in fact the evolution of a six year old software feature found within the iOS 14 which actually goes on to give the game away.

The culprit then is ‘Display Zoom’ which happens to be an accessibility tool that goes on to allow users to enlarge the user interface so as to make the text, icons as well as buttons easier to see. How the company actually achieves this position is actually a hack : each iPhone just simply goes on to employ the tactic of displaying the interface of the next smallest model with pretty much the same aspect ratio. For instance, the 19.5:9 iPhone Max models actually proceed on to show their 6.5-inch displays as employing the interface of the 5.8-inch iPhone, while on the other hand, the 16:9 5.5-inch iPhone Plus model actually show the interface from a 4.7-inch iPhone 8 – which in itself drops down to a 4-inch iPhone.
However, the 5.8-inch iPhone X, iPhone XS and the iPhone 11 don’t support Display Zoom due to the fact that there is no smaller 19.5:9 aspect ratio iPhone – this all though until now. Indeed the newly release third beta of iOS 14 actually allows these particular phones to drop their native 1125 x 2436 resolution to 960 x 2079 – which as you might have already guessed it – is for the 5.4-inch iPhone!
The two big takeaways from here are that this primarily goes on to rubber stamp the existence of the company’s super portable iPhone after the eye-opening battery leaks and secondly, Apple now also looks set to dramatically increase the Pixel density of its entry level iPhones.
