Another day, another iPhone Xs name hint; this time with storage options and box contents included
iPhone XI? iPhone 11? New iPhone X? iPhone X (2018)? iPhone XXL? There’s been plenty of speculation over the way Apple intended to solve a branding pickle caused by last year’s confusing introduction of the iPhone X/8/8 Plus trio for the next generation, scheduled to see daylight later this week.

Ultimately, while it’s still not wise to be certain of anything as far as official names go, more and more signs appear to point in the same general direction. Specifically, we expect Cupertino to unveil a (slightly) lower-cost iPhone Xc variant with an LCD panel, alongside a 5.8-inch or so and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus

The iPhone Xs moniker gains further credence today thanks to a couple of freshly leaked stickers purportedly belonging to legit product retail boxes. Unfortunately, no one can vouch for the authenticity and accuracy of the information listed on these pieces of paper, although the lack of typos and other obvious errors suggests at the very least that we are looking at a fairly sophisticated hoax.


It’s interesting to note the iPhone Xs spelling, as Apple may choose to go the lower case, no-space route, probably to avoid “eXeS” pronunciations. The correct way to pronounce this will obviously be “ten s”, following in the footsteps of the iPhone X (ten).

Another thing definitely worth pointing out is that a Lightning to USB cable will apparently be bundled with the iPhone Xs (and presumably, the Xc and Xs Plus as well), thus crushing all your (unrealistic) hopes of Apple’s proprietary Lightning port being replaced with a USB-C connector by default.


Last but not least, it seems the iPhone Xs will not stray from its predecessor’s storage path. Like the iPhone X, this should allow users to choose between 64 and 256GB configurations. Samsung’s hot new Galaxy Note 9 comes with a whopping 128 or 512 gigs of local digital hoarding room, but of course, there’s also the iPhone Xs Plus. Then again, we’d rather not think about the price of a prospective 6.5-incher with 512GB internal storage space.

64gb for a 1000$ phone with no option of expanding. Tch tch.... Really sad. Just a milking strategy by apple to force consumers to go for 256 versions.

I honestly do just fine with the 64gig phone. Most stuff I store online anyway. Use Amazon for Photos, Spotify for music etc. With unlimited data don't see a need for massive amounts of local storage.

Well, that you. You dont represent everyone else. I've used 60% of my 512GB on my Note 9, by making local copies of what I use most. Since I travel to places where there is zero internet, cloud storage is not an option. Also, the Duke sizes are too big, as I dont have unlimited data. Cloud storage is ok for small docs. Not doe videos, OS images, ISO files and similar large file types.

That lame 5GB of free storage? Hahaha. Even Google and Microsoft give 15GB free and you get 1TB with Office 365. Apple and their greed, co ri US ro provide lame limited services to their own customers. A trillion dollar company cant give you 15GB? Even Samsung gives 15GB to all Galaxy users.

I recently tried to go back to the iphone and I just couldn't get back into it after using Android for so long. I don't think anything Apple will introduce this year is going to convert me back to ios.
