Apparently, the large, iPhone Xs Max model will also be the heaviest yet at 7.34 ounce (208 grams).

This was revealed by the folks at Allthings.how, who spotted that Apple updated its product sitemap with the names of the iPhones set to launch tonight.

Analysts say the real focus may be on a model with 6.1-inch display, potentially called the iPhone 9. The Sitemap confirms that there will be three iPhones namely iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. The event is only a few hours away and Apple is getting ready to add the new products to its website, so fans can reach for their wallets. Apple didn't leave video out though, as you can now record stereo sound on the iPhone Xs. Though the headphones got off to a slow start, they have quickly helped Apple capture 26% of the US wireless headphone market, according to NPD Group. In addition to 64GB and 256GB models, Apple will also offer a 512GB model.

One new iPhone was likely to be priced slightly lower than the X model to "capture the next wave of buyers" in markets such as China, western Europe and the USA, according to Moorhead.

Apple's market capitalization has passed $1 trillion and the company needs to sustain revenue growth.

However, there's one new rumour that suggests Apple will also bring a feature to these new devices that has never been seen before.
