Apple leaks iPhone XS, XS Max and XR names

The new top model, XS Max, is expected to have a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) screen with an edge-to-edge display and an OLED display, according to the sitemap code.

However, this is one leak we can be sure of as Apple leaked the names of new iPhones on its website ahead of the launch. They'll be available in silver, black and gold and with storage options of 64 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB. The company also plans to announce an updated version of its 5.8-inch OLED device with a faster processor for improved performance.

The three models are expected to be the iPhone X, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Simply opening the app will start the live stream, giving viewers a much better experience than watching it on their iPhone, or on a small window on a computer. The display consists of a total of 2.7 million pixels, features a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch, and has a notch cut-out for the front-facing camera.

Apple's most anticipated keynote of 2018 is finally here and thanks to a bevy of leaks, it might be short on surprises. The Xs Max is nearly exactly the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus, despite the fact that its display is a full inch larger.

Those smartphones, he said, would also be pricier, helping Apple make more money.

In recent weeks and months, we've heard the names iPhone XC and iPhone XR in reference to the cheaper model with LCD screen. You can even change the depth of field after you've taken a photo. The previous Apple Watch was available in 38 mm and 42 mm sizes.

It also pushed smartphone prices into the stratosphere with the iPhone X retailing in Australia for $1579 and $1829.

To that end, kicking off in a few hours for Apple's annual iPhone event, with this year's event being branded as "Gather Round".
