Apple is all set to unveil its 10th generation iPhone on Sept. 12 at a fall event, and now we have a better sense what to actually call the upcoming iPhone.
As per 9to5Mac reports, the names of the phones will be:
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone Edition
The report refers to a pair of third-party case-makers, who shared some exclusive info with 9to5Mac reporter Seth Weintraub.
One of the case-makers, which has products carried by the Apple Store, reveals that the sources within the Apple’s manufacturing partners in China told him the names of the upcoming iPhones.
Apple is expected to unveil three iPhone handsets this fall: Two updated versions of the current iPhone 7 and one high-end 10th generation iPhone device, with new features like OLED edge-to-edge display and a facial recognition technology.
The lower-tier iPhone models have been termed by the “S” for long. The company could be stepping out of its established patterns if the revealed info is true.
The new names make Apple’s overall strategy come together. Launching an iPhone 7S alongside an iPhone 8 gives the impression that the lower-level line of devices are obsolete since they’re a number behind. Increasing them up a digit will provide some extra space between last year’s 7 models, even if they’re only modest internal improvements.
The leak isn’t confirmed yet, of course, until the company’s top execs officially unveil the anticipated iPhone.
