Apple appears to have accidentally leaked the official names of its new iPhone lineup on its website, mere hours before the Cupertino firm is due to unveil them at a press event later today.
Ahead of the unveiling of the 2018 iPhone devices, Apple has updated its product sitemap file which clearly states the name of the upcoming devices — iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
The Apple product sitemap has links to otterbox cases for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. There are links to some silicone and leather cases as well in Black, White, Midnight Blue, Productured, Stone, Taupe, Saddle Brown and many more color options.
None of these links are live yet, of course. But at least this piece of information confirms that the 2018 iPhone’s will be called iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
ATH later updated their report to say the “iPhone XR” was also present in the sitemap file which is the name for the rumored cheaper iPhone with 6.1-inch LCD display.
Apple has since pulled the XML file from its servers.
A few days ago, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported the new iPhones would be named as follows:
- A 5.8-inch OLED model named “iPhone Xs”
- A larger 6.5-inch OLED model named “iPhone Xs Max”
- A lower-priced 6.1-inch LCD model called “iPhone Xr”
An XML leak posted by Steve Troughton-Smith on Twitter, reveals the iPhone XR will come in Black, White, Red, Yellow, Coral, and Blue color options, and be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage capacities.
Not only do we know the product names from that sitemap, but all the available variants, sizes and colors. That's a lot of iPhone Xr's! pic.twitter.com/hnYpyObMAw
