Leaked iOS 14 source code appears to have confirmed a rumoured new budget iPhone. A potential successor to the iPhone SE (Apple's previous low-cost iPhone offering), the new low-cost device is expected to feature a similar body and 4.7-inch display to the iPhone 8.

Based on the code (obtained by 9to5Mac), the new budget iPhone will support Touch ID as well as Express Transit, which allows users to pay for transport without unlocking the phone. Add these features to its diminutive form, and the new iPhone sounds like a contender for our best smartphones list.
