Per 9To5Mac, if the rumor is true, Apple will be using the Plus nomenclature for the first time since the release of the Mac Plus, and for the first time on its smartphone line. While it may sound a bit odd, Macotakara does have a good track record and also accurately predicted the names of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C last year. Also Read - Beware!
