Apple inadvertently leaks images of new 'iPhone XS'
Ahead of the upcoming September 12th event, Apple seems to have inadvertently leaked images of a pair of unreleased iPhones as well as their name — the iPhone XS.
These images seemingly confirm the existence of two OLED models, likely a 5.8-inch iPhone X successor and a larger 6.5-inch "plus" version. According to 9to5Mac who shared the images, both models will be called iPhone XS.
In the images, we also see a new gold color that was rumored to be true earlier this year. The controversial notch also appears to be sticking around, as expected.
It isn't clear where the images originated, and AppleInsider could not authenticate them. However, the current theory is that Apple had a video stream running with images of the unreleased products.
I'm guessing Apple just streamed some marketing videos for unreleased products on a testing feed that they thought nobody was watching? Oops— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) August 30, 2018
Looking at the press invites for Apple's event, the gold color of the invite could now be seen as teasing the upcoming new iPhone color option.
