will launch its biggest iPhone overhaul in generations and it will contain some truly cutting-edge technology. But right before the event, news has broken that Apple itself has accidentally confirmed the headline models…
In a tweet, Rambo explained: “they 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. Apple took them down immediately after we published.”
Yes, Apple prematurely published a recap of everything it will launch tomorrow along with iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max images and left it in a URL format almost identical to its previous event. That is a horrendous mistake, and it has significant consequences.
The most obvious is everything we know about the iPhone XS (details) and iPhone XS Max (details) is true. It also follows that the sources which provided this information are reliable, which unfortunately means their bad news is correct as well. And the so-called iPhone XC / iPhone XR (an image of which was left out of the recap section) has a lot more compromises than first believed.
On the flip side, fears about Apple’s late iPhone price increases may be unfounded as the core sources who have now been proved correct, have long promised major price cuts. This could result in the eating of a second hat.
Ultimately, however, Apple’s accidental confirmation of its new iPhone XS range is extremely positive. It means Tim Cook has been happy to reinvigorate the entire line-up for the first time since the iPhone 6 in 2014.
