Somewhere Steve Jobs is rolling his eyes, after Apple leaked the names of the latest iPhones on its own website hours before the company’s scheduled product launch event on Wednesday.

The leak, first spotted by website All Things How, shows three new iPhones — the XS, XS Max, and XR — in an XML file for Apple’s online store. That puts to rest the annual rumors around what the next iPhone will be dubbed, with the “XS Plus” and “XC” floating around before this year’s event.

The leak also included product details like display size. The XS Max is set to feature the biggest screen in iPhone history, with its 6.5 inch screen trumping the current iPhone X’s 5.8 inch screen. The iPhone XR will also beat the previous mark set by the X, boasting a 6.1 inch display.

Info on the latest Apple Watch leaked, too, with the Watch Series 4 coming in wider sizes (40 mm and 44mm compared to its current 38mm and 42mm sizes) and several color options.

This wasn’t the first time Apple has accidentally shared product info ahead of schedule.

The company’s new Twitter account tweeted a picture of the iPhone 7 before CEO Tim Cook could unveil it himself back in 2016. The latest iPhone announcement can be streamed on Apple’s site and Twitter at 10 a.m. PT on Wednesday.
