GM leak of iOS 11 reveals 2017 Apple iPhone names: iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

GM leak of iOS 11 reveals 2017 Apple iPhone names: iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
In just three days, many of the questions that we've had about the tenth anniversary edition of the Apple iPhone will be answered. One of the biggest questions is, what will Apple name this version of its iconic smartphone? From the very first rumors, most of us in the media have labeled it the Apple iPhone 8. The two iPhone 7 sequels were called the Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus.

But last week, we passed along a couple of new rumors. One had the tenth anniversary model named the Apple iPhone Edition while the sequels were titled the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus. The other rumor had the premium, OLED model called the Apple iPhone X. That makes sense because the "X" could indicate a premium model, and it also represents the number "10" (as in 10th anniversary model) in Roman numerals.

Today, a developer named Steven Troughton-Smith was able to delve into a leaked Gold Master version of iOS 11 where he discovered that the last rumor we had appears to be right on the money. In other words, according to the iOS 11 firmware, the 2017 iPhone models will be named the Apple iPhone X (for the tenth anniversary model), the Apple iPhone 8 (the sequel to the iPhone 7), and the iPhone 8 Plus (as the sequel to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus). Sounds good to us.

We could get some more information between now and Tuesday's official unveiling event. Check in as often as you'd like for the latest rumors and news involving the most eagerly anticipated iPhone in years.

You're desperately in need of new material.

I find it surprising there's still people who, after a decade(?), think they're being original and witty when putting an "i" in front of an insult. If you weren't such a neo lib I'd give you a +1 ;)

"I find it surprising there's still people who, after a decade(?), think they're being original andwitty when putting an "i" in front of an insult." How 'bout the ones who put "s-" in front of an insult? It goes both ways.

Only if it has Split view Piture in picture Slide over Themes Pencil support Screen of memo Schedule messages Auto restart Dual camera usage (front and back) I'll leave it that for now. Apple has a powerful chipset, that is getting wasted man. Real talk.

He pastes that list incessantly. Gee maybe Apple should implement what he wants and then they'll become a successful company!

Exactly dude. This guy gets on here and talk like the fate of the company is based on if he buys it or not. I can't stand people like that!

No I don't fool. I'll simply not buy what doesn't appeal. As far as roids, I've never used them, but thanx for the compliment.

I love that you can't stand me, but you always jock me. Wassup with that lol? Can't stand me, get lost then, cause I'm not going anywhere. You could stand me when I used to always defend Apple and the iPhone, but now you can't lol. Pssy.

Hemorrhoids? Sounds like you got the market cornered.

I love their (I use roids) compliments lol. Never used them, but the compliments are appreciated. Old fashion hard work, and discipline are more than enough.

Anything good though?

Most...including I, don't use 4K, it's a storage hog, and it'll get compressed when you send it. True tone display, will look like the rest, when fingerprint smudged. 3D face scanning, will work no better than what's out there now. Wireless charging, LMAOOOOOOO! (Samsung) I don't like Samsungs or Apple's Pods Watch LTE LMAOOOOOOO (Gear S3) Try harder.

I wonder, if Apple will fulfill my list. It's really simply for the richest company in market cap value. Give me some killer software features Cook. I want much more than a 4K selfie camera, I'll never use. Make that full screen display support multi window.
