Apple appears to have leaked the names of its new iPhone lineup on its website, just hours before the company is due to officially announce them at its "Gather Round" event later today.

The names "iPhone XS," "XS Max," and "XR" were first spotted by ATH in a product sitemap XML file hosted on Apple.com. The names are linked to new products that come with AppleCare support and are associated with phone cases, seemingly confirming Apple's official nomenclature for its 2018 iPhone lineup.

The XML file also reveals new Apple cases for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices that come in both silicon and leather, with midnight blue, white, black, stone, and Product RED colors set to be available.

Two days ago, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reported that Apple would introduce the three widely rumored new iPhones using the now-leaked names: a 5.8-inch model named "iPhone Xs," a larger 6.5-inch model named "iPhone Xs Max," and a lower-priced 6.1-inch model that Apple would call "iPhone Xr".

Other rumored names for the less expensive 6.1-inch LCD had included "iPhone 9" and "iPhone Xc," harkening back to the iPhone 5c that came in multiple colors. Apple's 6.1-inch iPhone XR is expected to feature an LCD display and a single-lens camera to keep costs lower than the two OLED devices.

Apple is set to unveil the new 6.1-inch iPhone XR alongside the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone Xs and the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone Xs Max at an event that will take place later today at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. For full details on what to expect when the new iPhones debut, make sure to check out our roundup.

Update: Apple has since pulled the XML site map from its servers.
