We are only hours away from the official launch of Apple’s 2018 iPhones. The company is releasing three new iPhone devices this year: a 5.8-inch model, a 6.1-inch model, and a 6.5-inch model. All the new iPhones will be based on the original iPhone X, gaining features like an edge-to-edge display and Face ID.

So far, we had lots of questions about the branding of these new phones. Nobody really knew what Apple would do call all these new phones — and there were lots of names thrown around, including things like iPhone XS Plus, iPhone Xc, iPhone 9, etc. Just recently, though, things started becoming a bit more clear: with trusted publications revealing names of all the new phones: iPhone Xs (5.8-inch), iPhone Xr (6.1-inch), and iPhone Xs Max (6.5-inch).

Today, Apple has mistakenly confirmed the names of its new phones, according to ATH (via The Verge). The company put up a sitemap for its AppleCare websites for the new phones, seemingly confirming the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and the iPhone Xr branding. The sitemap has since been pulled down, though that should be more than enough to confirm the names of its new products and settle things after all the leaks and rumors.

We will be covering Apple’s event live, so keep an eye out for all the coverage on Thurrott.com.
