The newest iPhone may be split into multiple models to boost sales, according to two new sources. But rather than creating new hardware for each, Apple may split the iPhone’s personality by releasing iPhones containing different software.

This information was then presented by Yair Reiner, an analyst at Oppenheimer, to clients at the end of last week.
