As you may already know, the launch of this year’s iPhone(s) is approaching. Apple may send out press invites for an event any day within next few days. By now we also know plenty about the devices that will be released, thanks to Apple’s ever loyal rumor mill.
The word is that Cupertino based tech behemoth will release 3 iPhones this year breaking the tradition of two. One of those 3 iPhones will be a high-end flagship model, while 2 others will be company’s traditional “S”upgrades to last year’s iPhone 7. We already know what those two minor upgrades will be called – iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. Plain and simple.
However, the name of high-end model isn’t an easy thing to guess. There’re more versions of its name doing the rounds of rumor mill than there’re colors in the rainbow.
So the question of the moment is – what will Apple call its new iPhone? Let’s examine the two most possible naming candidates.
Apple iPhone 8
This is the default name being used for the device as of now. After all, it’s the next number in sequence. So for now the world is calling it iPhone 8. This name has become so popular that Apple may want to consider it seriously, because the term can help company utilize the power of curiosity which has been building up till now.
Apple iPhone X (or iPhone 10)
However, another name which has also been doing the rounds of rumor mill is iPhone X, or may be iPhone 10. This name also matters because this is 10th anniversary of iPhone. So in order to make it different and special the “8” and “9” may be skipped to jump to 10 directly.
Something similar was done by Microsoft as well, when company launched its Windows 10 after Win 8. However, the only reason why Apple would not want to do this is because iPhone X may not be read as “iPhone 10” but as iPhone Ex by many people, as it happened with company’s another product called Mac OS X.
So What to Expect From Apple in 2017 ? iPhone 8 or iPhone X
Besides these two names a number of other possible phrases are also doing the rounds of rumor mill, like iPhone Pro, iPhone Anniversary Edition and Apple Phone.
So the answer to this question is probably the hardest piece in entire iPhone 8 (let’s call it that for now) puzzle. It seems that we’ll get the answer only in September. But regardless of name, one thing is certain – this iPhone will be HUGE!
