'Plus' no more: Apple's upcoming iPhones will carry 'Xs Max' moniker

Apple: Consumers Will Pay up for Big Screens

If the rumors are true, Apple's next iPhone will be called 'XS' — and people are already making fun of the name, calling it 'extra small' and 'iPhone Excess' (AAPL)

The Xs Max is also expected to feature a bigger battery than the smaller iPhone Xs. Since more than half of the Cupertino based tech giant's revenues are from the iPhone, this hesitancy to upgrade hurts Apple more than it hurts users.

What features come with the iPhone XS camera? Like the iPhone XS, this one will also lack Apple Pencil and ProMotion support.

The next-generation iPhone may be called "iPhone XS", according to a report from 9to5Mac. Apple introduced the iPhone 7 and 8 in gold variants, but the iPhone X was only available in silver and space grey.

One of the iPhones will be an immediate successor of the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch screen, the second will be bigger with a 6.5-inch screen and the third will be a cheaper, 6.1-inch iPhone.

In other related news about unannounced iPhones, German website Macerkopf has allegedly revealed the European pricing for Apple's 2018 iPhone line-up. Also like the Note9, it's been rumoured to be coming with up to 512GB of built-in storage.

Apple has stated that the identified party iPhone 8 the marriage of the motherboard.

The site published a picture purporting to be of the OLED models on 30 August, which it claimed were going to be marketed as the iPhone Xs range.

They're both tipped to include Apple's faster A12 chipset and 4GB of RAM (up from the 3GB in the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus).

The iPhone maker said that a small percentage of the smartphones were affected and that iPhones that were made between September 2017 and March 2018 in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Macau, New Zealand and the United States were impacted. It will also feature its direct predecessor's most popular feature, the Face ID.

Another interesting takeaway from the alleged iPhone 9 case is that it appears to have a cutout for a dual camera setup at the back, while previous reports have suggested that it will have single rear camera module.

The XS and XS Max has two 12-megapixel sensors, one wide-angle with an aperture of f/1.8 and 1.4µm pixels and one telephoto with an aperture of f/2.4. This will enable the XS to support an augmented reality platform.

The hotly anticipated new iPhones are just around the corner and any little bit of information on them is likely to be pretty solid and close to the real deal.
