And that comes directly from a leak on Apple’s very own website. Blog ATH found a product sitemap XML file hosted on Apple.com with the names of accessories for the new iPhones, which will be announced later today. The XML file listed cases for the new “iPhone XS” and “iPhone XS Max,” confirming the names that had previously been rumored. The Verge also found reference to an “iPhone XR,” which is presumably the new 6.1-inch iPhone that Apple is expected to announce today.
Apple’s iPhone event will start in just a few hours, at which time the names will be confirmed publicly. Until then, let’s all mourn the death of the “Plus” naming convention for Apple’s biggest iPhone and speculate what the “R” could stand for in the new iPhone XR.
