Latest Leak Suggests Apple Will Announce 'iPhone 8', 'iPhone 8 Plus', and 'iPhone X' on Tuesday

Last night, the iOS 11 GM was leaked and we got a glimpse into numerous iPhone 8 features, including a look at a new edition of the Apple Watch, and even new "Animoji." Now, developer Steve Troughton-Smith has dug up new info related to the official names of the iPhones being announced on Tuesday.


According to the developer, Apple will call the smartphones the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (for the two LCD devices), and iPhone X (for the OLED model). These names will replace the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 monikers that have been attached to each respective model over the past few months.


In a separate Tweet, Troughton-Smith pointed out that this is still not an exact confirmation, but it is the closest we've gotten to an official name for the upcoming iPhones. "Maaaybe the DeviceTree is lying about the marketing name, maybe not," he said. "But right now, D22 thinks it is iPhone X, so that's good enough for me."

Seems Apple doesnt want people with the lower tier LCD phones to think they are inferior to the iPhone X in any way and hence skipping the S moniker. Psychological marketing

Ok. Now everyone remember: it's iPhone TEN not iPhone "ex". Just like it was Mac OS Ten! Hehe.

Actually, there's a good chance that it will be officially pronounced "ex", to avoid making the 8 sound two full generations behind the X.

I'm only going to buy the iPhone X if it has a headphone jack, costs $850 for 128GB, and comes with free AirPods. Otherwise I'm just going to get the regular 8.

In the Apple lineup, Pro doesn't mean pro. It just means the most expensive and the best.

And the beauty of "Pro" is that it gives a licence for people to buy the cheaper models (e.g. the supposed 8 and 8 Plus) without feeling inferior, because they rationalise it with "I don't need the Pro stuff".

The Pro name is some of Apple's finest marketing.


Fingers crossed for an Apple Watch Pro Edition X made from Valyrian steel at an amazing price of 3,499$
