How will the new range of 2017 iPhones be named? [MERGED]

Discussion in 'iPhone' started by ET iPhone Home, Aug 4, 2017.

?

What do you think Apple will do with the naming scheme?

  1. Apple will differentiate, two names: iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus + iPhone 8

  2. Apple will not differentiate, one single name: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus & iPhone 8 Pro

Results are only viewable after voting.

    If they do something as stupid (not "ballsy") as that, and price the single model out of reach for even folks such as myself who can afford it, but are fiscally conservative, you will have a whole lot of people who are overdue for an upgrade jumping ship to the Android side.

    I just had my 6 totally die, after terrible battery life since iOS 10.3, and I'm quite happy to "settle" for the regular 8 with a much improved 10nm A11 chip as well as a significant camera upgrade.

    This is a bad poll. Both options are highly unlikely.

    No way would Apple release the iPhone 7s and 7s plus along with the 8. It instantly makes the 7 look inferior and people would be put off.

    All the leaks and reputable leakers have said that there will be 3 iPhones this year, 7s, 7s Plus and a new iPhone 8/Edition or whatever they decide to call it.

    Edition would make sense along side the 7s/plus, but not 8 IMO

    I actually like the Edition name, it's something I could see Apple doing, they already do it with the Apple Watch Edition (even tho it is different materials I could still see Apple doing an iPhone Edition)

    I also don't believe Edition will happen. Apple will have some other marketing term attached to the OLED model are my thoughts. Seven days to go.

    i'm voting for 7s/+ and no number for the "edition" (or whatever it's name) phone.

    if it does get the number 8, the others will likely too, or they will sound like last years model. (which they kind of are, but that's probably bad for sales)

    My bet is 8/8 Plus and Edition. To me Edition looks premium what is supposed to be this top of the line iPhone.

    I will only buy iPhone 8 if they name it iPhone PRO. The word “PRO” carries such weightage that I can flaunt it to my non PRO colleagues and show them who is the real PRO amongst us. I also anticipate an increase in my social status.

    If Timmy decides to name it as iPhone Pro Pro, I would buy 2. One for each pant pocket.

    Go it Timmy, Criagy and Johnny! May the force be you.

    What about the OLED model being called the X and only available for a year.

    Then next year, the 8 will appear and just be a rebranded X?

    Yep

    But I think they'll drop the 8 and go with XI and XI Plus which has a 6.4" screen.

    That sounds like too much of a mouthful to pronounce.

    Apple like simple branding.

    My mom thinks she has an iPhone 5 (she has a 7), my mother-in-law thinks she has an iPhone 6 (she has a 6s), and my lady thinks she has an iPhone 6 (she has a 5C).

    If Apple makes it any more confusing, the women in my life are screwed.

    No one is saying there wont be 3 phones, but calling it the iPhone 7s and then the 8 would make the 7s feel outdated already It would likely be called the iPhone Edition or Pro.

    Man that's even worse than Edition or Pro. It just keeps getting worse and worse lol

    If anyone asks what iPhone I have, I'll be promptly telling them it's the notch edition.

    Even so, I would gladly accept "X" over Edition or Pro. But those Of terms are highly unlikely for the OLED model.

    I'm thinking Apple will go with 8, 8+ and 8 Edition.

    Then in 2018 they could use 8S, 8S+ and 8S Pro.

    I believe this year's redesign of the 7 is what'll cause the change in naming cycle...time will tell!
