And what about the iPhone 9?



Apple finally announced its iPhone X. It is the new flagship iPhone that will debut in November, weeks after the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus go on sale on September 22. Apple says it is supposed to pronounce the iPhone X as "iPhone ten", and is designed to mark 10 years of the iPhone .

While the iPhone 8 is an iPhone 7S in all but the name, the number hopping across all new iPhone models means that we are now officially orphaned from an iPhone 9 .

While the iPhone 8 is an iPhoneThe typical Apple name of its famous S has faded, for this year at least, which is not at all surprising. Samsung launched its Galaxy S8 earlier this year, and the company's Note 8 will be available on Friday (the same day the pre-reservations for the iPhone 8 start). 7S in all but the name, the number hopping across all new iPhone models means that we are now officially orphaned from an iPhone 9 .


On the part of Apple, going against the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 with an iPhone 7S and the iPhone 7S Plus really does not make much sense . Instead, Apple seems to be using a great marketing trick for iPhone this year.

Smart and subtle Apple trick


The name of the iPhone X helps position the device above the iPhone 8 without explicitly labeling it as "iPhone 10," because most people will simply call it the iPhone X and do not pronounce it as the iPhone ten . Apple knows, and the company only uses the X logo on their promotional materials. Jony Ive says "iPhone Ten" in the company's main video, but it would surprise us if we hear that Apple explicitly calls the iPhone ten on a regular basis.



Microsoft did a similar trick for its Windows 10 name. The software giant omitted Windows 9 and went directly to Windows 10, but Microsoft did it primarily to encourage Windows 7 users to upgrade. Looking at your PC and watching Windows 7 when there is a version of Windows 10 makes it look much older , and it's a marketing gimmick that helped promote free upgrades.


The subtle trick of Apple means that next year's iPhone names are going to get really interesting. Will we see the iPhone 8S, an iPhone 9, or an iPhone XS? Let the guessing games begin. Or is it too soon?
