Another day, another iPhone Xs name hint; this time with storage options and box contents included
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.
