Apple accidentally reveals iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max names

Apple accidentally reveals iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max names

The coding did not give prices of the new phones, but Apple will likely blast further past the $1,000 mark set by the 10th anniversary iPhone X a year ago, when it announces new phones at its Silicon Valley headquarters.

The names of Apple's next-generation smartphones have been leaked on the company's own website hours ahead of today's big keynote. iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr were all mentioned in a product sitemap XML file, which Apple has since pulled.

This, like the other new iPhones, is powered by the A12 Bionic chip. Here's what we know about Apple's new flagship smartphone.

The phone's new Smart HDR feature promises zero shutter lag, using a variety of buffers to make sure you get the best version of your subject the second you tap the shutter button.

In 2017, Apple started selling the iPhone X in November, around two months after its launch. It has a traditional, lower-quality screen and an aluminum body; it's physically smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus but has a bigger screen.

The phone is said to feature the same 5.8-inch display as the iPhone X but include more expensive and colorful OLED panels and L-shaped batteries to improve battery life.

Now we can see a list of exactly which colours will be available at launch: black, white, red, yellow, blue and coral.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are expected to be released in September.

"I think they are trying to set a new high bar", analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy said of new iPhones expected to offer more display without increasing the size of the handset.

Apple is planning to release two new iPad pro models, marking a significant upgrade over the current devices, Bloomberg reported.

The XS and XS Max both have dual cameras on the back of the phone, while the XR only has a single camera. This means that if you have an iPhone 5s or even an iPhone 6 lying around, or an older iPad that is 64-bit in nature, it should feel far more faster than before compared to how it was on iOS 11. It is waterproof, boasts the largest iPhone display ever and is "the most advance iPhone we've ever created", Apple chief executive Tim Cook said.
