Since CNET posted the iPhone 5 story this weekend… … the iPhone 5 is a “complete redesign. This is a very large project that Steve dedicated all of his time to. He was not that involved in the 4S because his time was limited.”. …we thought it would be a good time to tell you what our sources think

What happened to the iPhone 9 ? While the iPhone 8 is an iPhone 7S in all but name, the number jump across all the new iPhone models means we’re now officially missing an iPhone 9 .

  What happened to the iPhone 9? © Provided by The Verge Apple announced its iPhone X. It’s the new flagship iPhone that will be released in November, weeks after the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus go on sale on September 23rd. Apple says you’re supposed to pronounce the iPhone X as “iPhone ten,” and it’s designed to mark 10 years of the iPhone. While the iPhone 8 is an iPhone 7S in all but name, the number jump across all the new iPhone models means we’re now officially missing an iPhone 9.

Apple’s typical S naming is gone for this year at least, which isn’t entirely surprising. Samsung launched its Galaxy S8 earlier this year, and the company’s Note 8 will be available on September 15th (the same day iPhone 8 preorders begin). Going up against the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 with an iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus doesn’t really make as much sense this time around. Instead, Apple appears to be using a great marketing trick for this year’s iPhones.

There's An iPhone 8 That Costs $87,000 And I'll Just Be Over Here Weeping For Humanity

  There's An iPhone 8 That Costs $87,000 And I'll Just Be Over Here Weeping For Humanity The iPhone 8 hasn't even been properly announced yet (that happens Wednesday morning - and we'll be up live-blogging the whole thing), but there's already a version available to order featuring 250 grams of 22K gold, that costs the equivalent of $87,129 Australian dollars.

Replying to @tomwarren. Same thing that happened to Windows 9 . iPhone 9 and 9 plus are scheduled for next year and then Apple will completely switch their iPhone line to X generation.

The iPhone X naming helps position the device above the regular iPhone 8 without explicitly labeling it “iPhone 10,” because most people are simply going to call it the iPhone X and not pronounce it as iPhone ten. Apple knows this, and the company only uses the X logo in its promotional materials. Jony Ive says “iPhone ten” in the company’s keynote video, but I’d be surprised if we hear Apple explicitly call it the iPhone ten on a regular basis.

This subtle difference makes it clear it’s a special edition iPhone, and not an iPhone 10 that’s going to make people think they’re not getting the latest iPhone if they go for the iPhone 8. Let’s face it, the iPhone X is the device people will want, but most will go for the iPhone 8 simply because the X is priced so high.

Apple introduces ‘Face ID’ for iPhone X

  Apple introduces ‘Face ID’ for iPhone X Apple today confirmed the iPhone X will feature facial recognition technology dependent upon a new “true depth camera system” including an infrared camera, flood illuminator, dot projector, and proximity sensor. The Face ID feature will work in low light situations and, according to Apple, there’s only a one in a million chance another face (unless you have an evil twin) can unlock your device.Every time you look at your iPhone X it detects your face. The feature will allow users to unlock devices simply by looking at them, essentially letting iPhone owners to use their face as a password.

The company skipped iPhone 9 . What happens to iPhone 9 ? According to The Verge, this is a well-thought strategy. As Samsung launched Galaxy S8, it was logical that Apple comes with iPhone 8. iPhone 7S or iPhone 7S Plus does not make much sense.

This typically happens to iPhone users who keep their iPhones in a pocket that they also use for their hands, often hip jacket pockets, the hoodie pouch pocket, or front pants pockets for example.

Microsoft did a similar trick for its Windows 10 naming. The software giant skipped Windows 9 and went straight to Windows 10, but Microsoft did this primarily to encourage Windows 7 users to upgrade. Looking at your PC and seeing Windows 7 when there’s a Windows 10 version out makes it seem all that much older, and it’s a marketing trick that helped promote free upgrades.

Apple’s subtle trick does mean 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.
