The names of Apple’s 2018 iPhones have been a bit contentious as it appeared that no one really seemed to know what they would be called. We have heard names like the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, and as it turns out the rumors were true and have been confirmed by none other than Apple themselves.
In a report from ATH, Apple updated its sitemap file on its website and based on the strings that were discovered, we now know the names of Apple’s new iPhones. The strings don’t explicitly state which name is for which iPhone, but it’s not that hard to guess. The iPhone XS most probably refers to the 5.8-inch OLED model, while the XS Max will be the larger 6.5-inch OLED model.
The iPhone XR should be referring to the 6.1-inch LCD model, although what the “R” stands for is anyone’s guess. The sitemap also seems to mention the different storage sizes that we might be able to expect, which includes 64GB as the base model, 256GB as the mid-tier, and 512GB for the top of the line model.
However note that the 512GB model seems to be only for the iPhone XS and XS Max, where the iPhone XR will be capped at 256GB. Color options have also been revealed where the XS lineup will be offered in silver, black, and gold, while the XR will be offered in black, white, red, yellow, blue, and coral. Needless to say it’s only official when it’s been announced, but we should have all the details in the next few hours.
