The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR names are leaking from Apple's own site

<pre><pre>Release date, news and rumors from iPhone XS

The names of the three upcoming 2018 iPhones have been a confusing mess so far, but a leak on Apple's own website may have just confirmed the names we'll hear on stage later.

According to Apple's own product sitemap, the new products will be called the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

Spotted by ATH (with additional context added by The Verge) the names were seen in an XML file from Apple's product sitemap from the official Apple website. That file has since been drawn.

The actual products were not confirmed in the list of items that would appear on the Apple website, but the three names were used when referring to AppleCare support and phone cases.

Can they be this?

We have heard several names, including iPhone 9, iPhone 11, iPhone XS Plus and even iPhone XC, but it seems that all those things are out of the picture when trading the three names above.

Exactly what the iPhone XR is referring to at the moment is a bit unclear – we have never seen Apple use the "R" moniker before, so it will be interesting to see what the letter stands for.

The leak that comes directly from Apple's website means it's pretty accurate, but we will not know anything until later today when Tim Cook enters the stage in California and speaks the names aloud for the first time.
