It is allegedly depicting the 6.1-inch model, dubbed iPhone Xc or iPhone Xr.

If you like Apple hardware and are already planning on spending some money to buy new products this year, then tomorrow is going to be a good day.

The names for Apple's upcoming iPhones - the unveiling is today, in case you forgot - have been floating on the internet as rumors for a while, but a new leak on Apple's own website all but confirms them. It'll also come in gold, adding to the gray and silver versions from previous year.

A second phone, the XS, with a 5.8-inch OLED display, would be similar to the iPhone X but with an improved processor.

The company is reportedly set to introduce two updated versions of the iPhone X - including a larger Plus-style phone - alongside a cheaper version of the device, complete with the all-screen front panel and Face ID.

The iPhone XR will have a 6.1-inch LCD screen and be available in 64GB and 256GB storage options. It will also use aluminum instead of stainless steel edges, and come in several additional colors.

Apple wants users to upgrade to newer, more expensive devices as a way to boost revenue as global demand for smartphones levels off.

Apple for years was known for being very secretive about new product launches, but in the last few years, iPhone specifications have routinely found their way into the public domain before the launch.

While the iPhones will be the Wednesday's main attraction, Apple's growing smartwatch business will see stage time, too.

Of the other devices, the Apple Watch 4 is also expected to come with a lot of improvements over the predecessors including the display size, more real estate, click-free buttons and more.

While it is the market leader, the Apple Watch still doesn't sell in high enough quantities for Apple to break out individual unit sales like it does for Macs, iPads, and iPhones.

Apple also is likely to announce a revamping of its "budget" offerings.
