Is it Xs, Xs Max, and Xr, or is it XS, XS Max, and XR? What is Apple's stance on this?

Apple's logos use an upper case R, but smaller. Not sure about the s. However, Apple's online help manual uses Xs, and Xs Max. There is no mention of the Xr/XR, but I note that whenever I type Xr on my phone it gets autocorrected to XR.

Apparently it is technically XS, XS Max & XR. So all capitals but using a smaller font for the S & R.
It should be small capital letters. If those are not available then it's capital letters.

Ah yes. Thx. That's where my confusion came from.

On the online iPhone iOS 12 help guide, everything looks like Xs, Xs Max. However, it really isn't. It's XS but with a small font S. Copying their "iPhone XSs Max" text from the help guide into a basic text editor yields "iPhone XS Max".

EDIT:

It does that here too. If you copy from Apple's help guide into this forum, the small font capital s turns into a big font capital S.

Note that the XR doesn't appear because it's not out yet.

Yeah, I went to the effort of using a smaller font here just to show what Apple wants it to look like, but I'll probably never go to that much effort again when typing out XS and XR.
