Apple is getting ready to unveil new iPhones, but a leaked final iOS version has revealed details about what's in store for tech-enthusiasts.

Among the devices to be announced on Tuesday is a new high-end iPhone dubbed the "iPhone X" -- a reference to the tenth anniversary of the introduction of the original iPhone in 2007. The existence of this higher-end iPhone had previously reported, but the newly-leaked code also verified many key details about the device.

9to5Mac, which was among a few outlets to receive the unreleased version of the operating system, reported this weekend that it will come with an almost bezel- free OLED display.

It's thought the phone will retail for $US1000 ($A1246).

Apple is getting rid of the physical home button for this device to extend the screen all the way to the bottom, and the top of the screen will feature a cut- out for the front-facing speaker and camera.

The device will be powered by Apple's A11 Fusion chip, and feature wireless charging. Without a home button, Apple is also ditching Touch ID for this device, and instead replacing it with a technology called Face ID, which is essentially biometric authentication via facial recognition software.

In addition to the iPhone X, Apple is also expected to release two new iPhone 8 models as well as a revamped Apple TV with 4K HDR support.
