The 2017 iPhones will be named iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone X
It’s official; Apple won’t be releasing anything called the iPhone 7s this year.
Since the iOS 11 GM leaked on Friday night, we’ve learned a number of new details about what Apple will be announcing at their September 12 event. We’ll be seeing three new iPhone models, a new LTE-enabled Apple Watch and new AirPods for sure, with a new Apple TV also said to be in the works.
Until now, we didn’t know exactly what these new iPhones would be called. The ultra-premium iPhone model was initially expected to be named iPhone 8, but new details discovered by developer Steve T-S indicate that the $999 model will be known as the iPhone X.
The same portion of the code that revealed the iPhone X’s name also indicated that the lower-end models will be coined iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Although many anticipated these standard models to be named iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, the phones’ new all-glass design seems to have warranted skipping a generation entirely.
