Apple's next-generation iPhone and Watch have been leaked in press renders. Said to be called the iPhone XS, the new iPhone is depicted in Gold while the new Apple Watch Series 4 confirms rumors it would pick up a larger display.

As is often the case these days, there is little left to the imagination when it comes to major product announcements from Apple or just about any other tech company. However, while we often come across leaked development shots or schematics of Apple’s products, it is a rare thing to see official press renders of its devices before the official launch. Somehow, the folks at 9to5Mac have managed to get their hands on the official renders of the next-generation iPhone and Apple Watch.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple will drop the “Plus” nomenclature for the larger model and both devices will be known as the iPhone XS, or “Ten ’S.’”  As widely leaked, the devices will come with either a 5.8-inch or a 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED display. Also shown in the leak is the new Gold color option that was missing for the original iPhone X launch. It is also expected to ship in the regular Space Gray and Silver options and be powered by Apple’s next-gen A12 chip.

The Apple Watch Series 4 render reveals a device with a 15 percent larger OLED display that now stretches from edge-to-edge for the first time. This additional screen real estate is not going to waste either, by the looks of things. The current Apple Watch models show around four complications on the display; the new Series 4 uses the added space to show up to eight complications at a glance. No news, however, on whether Apple will finally offer an always-on display option.

Expect all the details to be fully revealed at Apple’s official September 12 launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater housed in the new Apple Park Space Ship campus in Cupertino.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
