After three years of the same iPhone design, Apple fans finally be getting a newer one in 2017. Rumors suggest Apple is planning to release not one, even not two, rather three redesigned iPhone models this year. One of them is expected to be updates to the iPhone 7, and the second will be a refreshed iPhone 7 Plus. And the third, which is said to be the 10th anniversary model, will be the one to get makeover that include glass housing to enable wireless charging. All said for the third new iPhone that features a top-to-bottom redesign, which will ditch the physical Home button so that the new OLED display can occupy as much of the phone’s front side as possible. It’ll also have a Touch ID fingerprint sensor embedded beneath the screen. The crown new jewel of the iPhone lineup is also expected to have a new dual-lens camera that marks a big upgrade over 2016’s iPhone 7 Plus.
We now know plenty about Apple’s upcoming new iPhones, indeed – but at the same moment we know one thing that everyone has been getting all wrong ever since details first began leaking last year. Don’t Miss: WHOA: iOS 11 Running On iPhone 8 First Glimpse Looks Gorgeous
Remember the gorgeous “iPhone 8” mockup we saw appear in a video recently? You can see it below, that almost certainly not an iPhone 8. It’s been a long time coming, but 2017 is shaping up to be the year that Apple switches up its naming scheme for the iPhone lineup.
Apple inevitably plans to release three new iPhone models this year, and the fact is now becoming true. Tech blogs have to refer to them by some names, and they’ve landed on names that seem logical at first glance. But not logical at all. iOS 11 ARKit Demo Shows iPhone 8 In Augmented Reality [Video]
Going further by names we’ve all been using, here’s what Apple’s 2017 iPhone lineup would look like:
- iPhone 7s
- iPhone 7s Plus
- iPhone 8
If you think the above listed names are fine, then you have mismatched. We have got two iPhones that are upgrades to last year’s models, and the third brand new one with a brand new name. What happens in 2018?
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone 8s
Not. A. Chance!
Reason why? First, Apple would ever release an “S” model in the same year that it releases new numbered models. Secondary, it would the idea that Apple would upgrade the “iPhone 8” to “iPhone 8s” while also upgrading the “iPhone 7s” to “iPhone 8”. Would Apple really give the same name to two different phones in two consecutive years? No way.
Only thing in our mind saying is that, Apple will not release three iPhones this year named iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and the iPhone 8. There are many speculations, and we just know what the company won’t be calling them, though we can’t certainly judge them to do so.
In this case, if Apple decides to combine iPhone and iPad naming schemes with its new iPhone lineup, it might look like this:
- iPhone Plus
- iPhone Pro
If the rumors are to be trusted anymore, Apple really only plans to launch two new iPhones in 2017, they might be named as follows:
- iPhone Pro
Or the company could go full iPad, and opt for:
- 4.7-inch iPhone
- 5.5-inch iPhone
- 5.8-inch iPhone
In all three of those instances, it would follow the iPad lineup’s lead. Then, in the years that follow, Apple might slap year disignators on its iPhones as it does with MacBook models.
There’s still glaring problems with each of those three suggestions. For the first two, the “Pro” designator doesn’t actually align with Apple’s other product lines. Some of which aurged that the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro are both professional-grade device lines, while Apple’s tenth-anniversary iPhone would clearly be a consumer device. Sorry.
Tome, the third suggestion aforementioned is the least likely. Absolutely, it makes sense, and sure it aligns with the iPad lineup, but would Apple really release a “5.5-inch iPhone” that’s larger than a 5.8-inch iPhone? However, it is said that the upcoming tenth-anniversary iPhone will arguably be far more compact than the iPhone 7 Plus even though it has a larger display.
Other than that Apple could move in to different directions. iPhone X has been tossed around a bit, and if Apple would, which won’t be the one, as the company move back to “X” after dumping the OS X name in favor of macOS. But still, what happens next year? iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone Xs? How about in 2019? iPhone 8s, iPhone 8s Plus, and iPhone X2? Nope, not a chance.
It is admitted that Apple is going to introduce the world with a top-end highly-powerful device that can manage everything with a single touch, even with your eyes using iris scanner, and some people suggest that Apple might ditch the iPhone brand entirely and move to “Apple Phone,” like Apple Watch. Perhaps someday, but we don’t see that happening right now.
Come September, Apple’s upcoming phones with iPhone 7s, 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 will be launching. However, don’t expect to see any of those names on stage during Apple’s big unveiling day.
