Is iPhone Xs Max the real name of Apple’s largest iPhone ever?

By reviews / 5. September 2018

Apple plans to take the iPhone to the Max when it launches its 2018 phones in exactly one week. According to a new report, the larger 6.5-inch model will be called the iPhone Xs Max.

Multiple sources speaking to 9to5Mac have confirmed the new naming convention, which ties into previous reports suggesting Apple was planning to ditch the ‘Plus’ monicker this time around.

The more diminutive 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will go by the name iPhone Xs, the report says. The two Xs models are likely to introduce a new gold finish, but otherwise look identical to the 2017 iPhone X models in terms of overall design.

The report features no news on the name for the rumoured lower-end 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, but recent speculation has it pegged as the iPhone 9, following on from last year’s iPhone 8 range.

Apple introduced the ‘Plus’ naming convention back in 2014 when it launched its first pair of iPhones. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus convention endured right up to this year’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It’s not clear why Apple is opting for ‘Max’ – a term it has never used in this context beforebut we’ll find out soon enough.

Apple will launch this year’s iPhone during a keynote address at the ‘Gather Round’ event scheduled for Wednesday September 12. It begins at 10am California time, which is 10am UK time.

Beyond the iPhones, the company is expected to reveal the final versions of iOS 12, watchOS 5 and macOS Mojave. We’re also expecting a brand new Apple Watch Series 4 to take the stageRecent leaks have shown a near-edge-to-edge display, sleeker button design and new watch faces that showcase a wider range of information.

We’ll be covering the September 12 event as it happens, so keep it locked here. Let us know your hopes for Apple’s autumn line-up of iPhones @TrustedReviews on Twitter.
