In light of the recently announced 'iPhone 8' giveaway, I thought I'd spur conversation in the potential naming of the device. This being, the one that is expected to feature shrunken down bezels, a 5.8" OLED display with a pixel density of greater than 500 ppi, no home button, face scanning technology, and much more. It is also rumored to have a starting price of at least $1000.
It seems almost everyone has been referring to this upcoming device from Apple as the iPhone 8, however, I don't see that happening. Apple's flagship phone is expected to be announced alongside the iPhone 7s and 7s+ sometime in September. If it were to be called the iPhone 8, then what would the upgrade to the iPhone 7s be called next year? iPhone 8 II? Highly unlikely. Instead, I believe Apple will call it iPhone Pro. Just look at their other products. We have iPad Pro, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, and soon iMac Pro. It only makes since that they will launch iPhone Pro. It was previously rumored to be named iPhone Edition, similar to the Apple Watch Edition, which is the Apple Watch that costs over $1000.
So what do you think the next high-end iPhone will be called? Maybe you still think iPhone 8 is reasonable. Let me know with a comment down below.
