Yes, Apple's first 512GB iPhones are real, but the 'cheap' XR is left behind
Apple's website code is the gift that keeps on giving this iPhone leak season. After a developer obtained the press renders of the iPhone XS and XS Max by plugging their eventual names in Apple's post-event website, we also got their names confirmed, and now the storage options they will be available in.
It turns out that the long-rumored 512GB version of the new iPhone XS - a first for Apple - is also listed in the code, and this is a tangential confirmation just a few short hours before the unveiling. It remains to be seen whether the cheapest iPhone XR model will also have half a terabyte storage option, but such a version isn't listed in Apple's sitemap, while the XS Max will most certainly do as well.
If the XS Max starts off at $999-$1099, depending on whose rumors you chose to believe, and the 256GB option is $150 more, we shudder to think what the 512-gigger would go for. Will Apple get close to the $1500 barrier, will it burn there like Icarus? Stay put...
