Apple Xcode for iOS 8 hints at larger iPhones coming soon

Apple’s Xcode 6 app development tool contains two new settings which allow apps to be made for iPhones and iPads of various screen size, suggesting larger iPhones are in the works.

The company is widely expected to announce a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in the autumn, but now this larger screen size seems all but certain, given the new version of Xcode - released alongside iOS 8 this week - lets developers text apps on various screen sizes.

Inside Xcode’s iOS simulators, where developers can run apps in an iPhone- or iPad-like environment on their computer, there are two new hardware configurations available: “resizable iPhone” and “resizable iPad”.

The iPhone 6 is expected to be announced in September, before going on sale to coincide with the public release of iOS 8, which was debuted at Apple’s WWDC event in San Francisco this week. A model with a 5.5-inch screen is tipped to arrive towards the end of the year.
