We know that the iPhone 8, iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus are getting unveiled in a couple of weeks’ time, and we thought we knew what the phones were going to be called too – but a couple of different rumors over the weekend suggests Apple is changing its mind about what monikers these handsets will ship with.
First up, Netherlands site iCulture reckons the iPhone 8 is actually going to be called the iPhone X when it gets shown off to the world – X as in 10, as in the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. That’s according to “a reliable source”, and the iPhone 7S will become the iPhone 8, and the iPhone 7S Plus will become the iPhone 8 Plus.
Not so, say casemakers whispering in the ear of 9to5Mac – they say the premium-level iPhone is actually going to be called the iPhone Edition. They do agree that the other two phones are likely to be labelled the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus though.
It seems quite late in the day for a rebranding exercise but we have heard the names iPhone X and iPhone Edition from way back in the early part of the rumor cycle, so it’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that these titles are making a comeback with just a few days to go to the big reveal.
What seems certain is that Apple will give minor upgrades to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, possibly adding wireless charging along the way, as well as launch a higher-end, bezel-free, all-screen premium iPhone that could set you back a hefty chunk of cash.
