Apple Accidentally Leaks 2018 iPhones: This is ‘iPhone XS’ in Gold [u]

Oh dear, oh dear. Looks like Apple accidentally leaked the next iPhone on its website, as discovered by 9to5Mac:

…9to5Mac can exclusively share the first look at both new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones: the iPhone XS.

We believe that the new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones will both be called iPhone XS. We also believe iPhone XS will come in a new gold color option not previously offered on the new design. Apple leaked its own gold version of the iPhone X through the FCC, but it has not been available to purchase.

Below is the iPhone XS in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch display sizes, shown in gold:


The leak was discovered by iOS developer and code sleuth Guilherme Rambo, who looks to have screen-recorded an Apple test stream, which started earlier this year compared to last year.

Update August 31, 2018: Rambo now clarifies these are indeed marketing images that leaked, and not captured from video. This story has been updated.

There’s no word on how much material was leaked, but according to 9to5Mac founder, Seth Weintraub, he tweeted “The new Apple Watch UI is blowing me away. It is nuts. Stay tuned for some monster scoops on @9to5mac.”

This isn’t going to turn out well for Apple, as the company prides itself on preventing leaks, so it can unveil surprises at its special events. Stay tuned for one more leak…
