You get the feeling that when Tim Cook gets up on stage later this evening, there won’t be much left for him to reveal.

Apple has been hit with a series of leaks in recent weeks, detailing all the new products it plans to unleash on the world.

Now, with just hours to go, pictures have emerged on Chinese social media of a seemingly finished iPhone XS unit.

And it certainly looks a little familiar. Some say the new phone will be slightly thicker with a larger rear camera. But we can’t really tell the difference from these snaps.

Completely separately, it appears that dogged Apple fans from a German website called have combed through Apple’s own site to confirm the final names of these devices.

They grabbed a product sitemap XML file being hosted on that showed the new devices will be called the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

So, that appears to be a nail in the coffin for the rumoured ‘iPhone XS Plus’ and ‘iPhone XC’ names, then, which were widely rumoured to be the monikers of the gadgets.

Tonight’s event is being held at the Steve Jobs Theatre within Apple Park and will start at 6pm UK time.

We’re expecting more of an iterative update than a revolutionary design change. So expect similar looking devices to last year’s iPhone X with a few internal upgrades.

A faster chipset, better camera system and bigger battery may be among some of the biggest changes.

As well as new iPhones, Apple is also expected to reveal a new Apple Watch model and possibly some new versions of the iPad Pro and the Macbook Air.

In addition to new models, Apple is also expected to unveil a gold-colour option for the two new OLED-screened phones, a new version of its wireless Airpods earbuds with wireless charging and a new version of its Apple Watch with a bigger display.

It also is expected to release a wireless charging mat that will be able to charge several devices at once.
