This rules out the name iPhone XS Plus, which has been a popular moniker for Apple's 6.5-inch OLED iPhone. That phone is expected to cost over $1000, and to sport 512GB storage. The iPhone XS would christen the 5.8-inch OLED model, the iPhone X's direct successor, and iPhone XR would refer to the 6.1-inch LCD phone we previously expected to be called the iPhone XC.

According to another sitemap file spotted by, the iPhone Xr will be available in black, white, red, yellow, coral and blue, whereas the XS series will feature a new gold option.

We'll find out the final names of these models, and how to pronounce them, at today's Apple event. Keep an eye out for our on-the-ground coverage starting at 1pm ET.
