Apple announced Thursday that its next “special event” will take place on Sept. 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater on its Apple Park campus in Cupertino, Calif. But 9to5Mac had more exciting news than just that simple calendar item.
The all-things-Apple website offered what it was calling an exclusive look at the new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones called the iPhone XS.

“We also believe iPhone XS will come in a new gold color option not previously offered on the new design,” 9to5 said. The site did not offer any further details / prediction around pricing.
Last September when the iPhone X was unveiled (skipping the 9 during an event which also brought out the iPhone 8), Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company’s signature device would “set the path for technology for the next decade.”
And, oh, h/t to CNET, who, in chasing 9to5, encouraged readers to say “iPhone XS” out loud. As someone who bought his $1,000 iPhone X less than a year ago, XS sounds about right.
