There has been widespread speculation about the names of the new iPhones, and several suggestions and rumours have made the rounds. The last proper leak was that the successor models to the Apple iPhone X which will come in two OLED display models in different display sizes, to be called iPhone Xs.

Now that we know that the larger one among these will be named iPhone Xs Max, we think it makes sense. This is not entirely surprising either, since the brand has released its flagship phones in two sizes, the larger of which it was naming with a ‘Plus’ suffix. Now, the ‘Max’ seems to serve as the new suffix, replacing the ‘Plus’ that came with iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8, but not the iPhone X.
