The iPhone Xs Max - the new naming scheme for the larger edition - will ship with a 6.5in, 2,688 x 1,242 display.

'These phones really look wonderful, but "iPhone XS Max" is the worst product name Apple has come up with in this century, ' Twitter user @gilbert said. And it has the same A12 Bionic processor inside, so will support all the same new features.

Chinese iPhone users will also have dual SIM capability.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X.

In the middle of the iPhone XS and the iPhone XR launch, Apple also announced a new smartwatch.

The leak, discovered in new product page listings of the Apple.com sitemap by the site All Things How, appears to confirm the three new phones will be called the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR.

As you've probably realised by now the Home button is well and truly gone and Face ID is here to stay.

As for the iPhoneXR, the price is €879 and it has a 6.1 inch display.

For comparison, the iPhone XS Max is bigger even than the Galaxy Note 9, which spans 6.4 inches. It shares numerous same features as the Xs - including the processor, Face ID and no home button.
