After months of iPhone leaks the wait is almost over with only two days to go before Apple's momentous event, but Apple's leaked iOS firmware has detailed new features.

So far, reports have named the upcoming iPhones as iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8. However the firmware indicates that Apple is ditching the S branding and instead the devices will be named iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

The reveal came from iOS developer Steven Troughton Smith, after the Golden Master build of iOS 11 was leaked. He discovered that references to the iPhone X were linked to the D22 codename with a bezel-less display.

...and we now have the name of all three new iPhones. Are you ready for this?

It is possible that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be the lower-tier devices, whereas the premium iPhone X will mark the tenth anniversary of the iPhone.

Apple's iPhone X is rumoured to cost $1,000, due to a complete redesign which may possibly feature wireless charging, an iris scanner and a fingerprint scanner, however the hefty price tag may deter Apple fans. Does the rumoured price tag deter you? Take our poll:

Will you pay $1,000 for Apple's upcoming iPhone 8?

The iOS 11 firmware also revealed new features, including Face ID, Animoji (3D emojis), new wallpapers and confirmation of the LTE Apple Watch.

Apple could of course tweak the firmware before the official launch event on 12 September, but not long until all is revealed.
