Apple will debut all three new iPhone models tomorrow at its special event in Cupertino, California, which kicks off at 10 AM PT.

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

For those wondering, you will be able to download iOS 12 final on the 17th of September, according to Apple during its iPhone Xs keynote.

Apple also showed off a cheaper iPhone, called the iPhone XR.

Despite the upgrade to the previous generation of Apple's iPhone X range, the market reaction to the announcement was at best subdued - Apple's shares were down at -1.31% in trading immediately after the event. It would be one of the largest mass-market phones on the market, measuring about an inch larger than the screen on Apple's current largest phone, the iPhone 8 Plus.

As with the iPhone X, the new phone has a screen that runs from edge to edge, an effort to maximize the display without making the phone too awkward to hold. The third expected model, the Xr, with a 6.1-inch display, is expected to use lower-cost LCD technology, but look more like last year's iPhone X than the iPhone 8, which itself was a similar design to phones going back to 2014's iPhone 6.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are expected to be released in September. Now we can see a list of exactly which colours will be available at launch: black, white, red, yellow, blue and coral.

The sitemap file leak also allegedly revealed a new Apple Watch Series 4 model that will be available in wider 40 mm and 44 mm band sizes (existing Apple Watches boast band widths of either 38mm or 42mm) and come in space gray, silver, and gold aluminum color options.

Apple says that the iPhone XS will offer 30 minutes more battery life than the iPhone X, while the XS Max will serve up to 90 more minutes of juice than last year's model.

Stay tuned afterwards though as tech sites will have a huge amount of extra info to reveal as they get hands on with the new devices.
