Most pundits and rumours had tipped the existence of a premium "iPhone 8" model, upped in numbers to tie in with the 10th anniversary of the iPhone platform, but it appears from the code that this device, previously signalled as "D22" for internal development purposes will instead be the "iPhone X".

The iPhone X along with the other two devices - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be unveiled on September 12 and will on sale later. The iPhone 7s line is expected to switch out metal for a glass design, while internal upgrades will remain minimal. Apple couldn't have chosen a more ideal place to unveil iPhone 8 since this month marks ten years since Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone.

The leak also contains what might be the first publicly released image of the new LTE Apple Watch Series 3, which looks an terrible lot like it has cellular capacity. This was first spotted by 9to5Mac, which said that they have received an advanced copy of Apple's iOS 11 GM firmware, which is officially scheduled to launch the coming week.

The display will also feature "True Tone" technology, which has already appeared inside the iPad Pro.

It also lists options to use Face ID for, like unlocking the device, purchases on iTunes and the App Store and Safari Autofill.
