It’s without a shadow of a doubt Apple will release three new iPhone models this fall, including the iPhone X Plus. Don’t believe me? In the latest beta for iOS 12, there’s a reference to the device that should clear up any doubt.
Discovered by Guilherme Rambo, there’s a payment glyph for an “iPhone X Plus,” a device we’re expecting to feature a 6.5-inch display. The image found by Rambo showcases a tall, narrow screen interrupted by Apple’s patented notch, which should contain the company’s TrueDepth camera technology.
I'm having dejavu. Payment glyphs for "iPhone X Plus", iPhone X (for comparison) and 2018 iPad Pro (which is square and weird). Found in PassKitUIFoundation. pic.twitter.com/H13448oYr8

Apple found itself in a similar situation last year, when Rambo discovered a glyph of the iPhone X ahead of the device’s announcement. Hence, why Rambo mentions feeling deja vu.
If you need a visual comparison between the iPhone X and iPhone X Plus, Rambo includes both glyphs in his Tweet. He also includes a glyph for an unannounced iPad Pro, which for some reason is square.
In addition to a larger 6.5-inch display, the iPhone X Plus may also share some DNA with the iPad by providing users with more information in certain stock apps.
