Intel announced recently that they are getting away from the tick-tock upgrade cycle of their processors. With all the rumors about the 2017 iPhone having a radically new design, will next year mark the end of the number-numberS, number-numberS iPhone upgrade cycle? I have a feeling this year's phone will still be the iPhone 7, but starting next year Apple will do away with the number completely. Just think of how ridiculous iPhone 10, iPhone 13 etc. will sound. But then again you may need to highlight the number to force people to upgrade. Just calling everything an iPhone or iPhone Plus or iPhone SE may not work either. I am very curious to see how Apple decides to deal with this as they head toward double digit numbers.
