Apple’s iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XC, iPhone XR launch event on September 12th: release date, leaks, rumors, pre-order, availability, specs, retail prices, and more. Few hours from now, Apple is scheduled to officially launch its biggest iPhone lineup in years and it will feature some truly revolutionary avant-garde technologies. But prior to the event proper, Apple itself has accidentally dropped the bombshell and confirmed the headliners of the September 12th event.
The surprising facts comes from 9to5Mac’s Apple mystery solver Guilherme Rambo, arguably the most reliable Apple tipster on the planet, after he divulged the source of his official iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 marketing images: none other than Apple Inc itself.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday, September 12th, Rambo said that the marketing images of Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max flagships, “came from the recap section of the special event website. I used the URL pattern from the last event and guessed the device’s names. The tech giant took them down immediately after we published.”
Yes, Apple has created a webpage dedicated for its September 12 event recap. The Cupertino-based tech giant published everything it will launch later alongside iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max images and left it in a URL format nearly identical to its recent hardware launch events. That is a terribly disastrous error, and comes with a significant consequences — leaks.
The most evident is everything we know about the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones are completely true. It also follows that the sources which provided this details are indeed authentic, which unluckily means their not so good news is also precise as well.
On the other side of storyline, dismays regarding new iPhone retail price surges may be unproven as the key sources who have now been proved correct, have long promised a significant price markdowns.
Apple’s unintended confirmation of its new iPhone XS 2018 generations is immensely affirmative. It only mean that CEO Tim Cook has been delighted to freshen the entire line-up for the first time since the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus dating back in 2014.
