With the apparent leak of the Gold Master version of iOS 11, the leaks just keep coming, and now it appears we finally know the official names of Apple’s three new phones.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith is continuing to dig through the leaked iOS 11 GM firmware, and now he has stumbled across the names of Apple’s three new phones.

It looks as though Apple will announce on Tuesday that the phones are the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

Do note that this is not a 100 percent confirmation of the names we will see on stage on Tuesday. Apple could have changed its mind at any point during the manufacturing process and this could be old code lingering in the system.

Through out this rumor cycle the iPhone X has also been referred to as the iPhone 8 and iPhone Edition, while the 8 and 8 Plus have also been known as the 7s and 7s Plus. Case makes have been bouncing between names, but with this appearing in what appears to be actual code, the 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X seem to be what we will see come Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Stay tuned as more information is sure to appear from the firmware as developers continue to dig through it.
