Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are the finalised names, confirms leaked iOS 11 firmware

A leaked iOS 11 firmware has confirmed the names of the long awaited iPhone devices to launch on 12 September. The three phones to be launched were expected to be iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone X, but the firmware leak has proved otherwise.

According to a report by 9to5mac, the iPhones to launch at the launch event are iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. This information was extracted from the leaked iOS 11 GM firmware. This was accidentally leaked by the company days before the launch event.

After the leak, it was just a matter of time before developers dug through the code of the firmware to find the latest information of the upcoming iOS devices straight from a source that is as official as it can get.

One thing to note here is that the names of the upcoming iPhones were not the only thing that was uncovered from the firmware. As reported previously, potential users of next generation Apple TV will need a stable internet connection with connectivity speeds of about 15 Mbps to stream 4K content.

Fifth-generation of Apple TV will push out 2160p UHD content on the screen along with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10 format.

The code further revealed colour format options for Chroma sub sampling in addition to HDR10. Chroma sub sampling loses colour information to preserve luminance data and it is available for standard YCbCr colour format in addition to HDR10.
