He said this on Twitter. His theory is there will be iPhone, iPhone Plus and iPhone Pro. Perhaps using the number 8 or maybe forgoing numbers all together. I get it and in some ways it makes sense in terms of naming conventions. But the rumors around iPhone 8 mostly point to new material (glass), smaller bezels and OLED display. What exactly are ‘pro’ about those? They might make the phone more expensive but I’m not sure what makes them ‘pro’ features. Assuming ‘pro’ means for professionals. Something else Gruber mentioned is the iPhone Pro could be thicker and have longer battery life. But I would argue that’s something everyone wants and even if you’re not using your phone for your job or to earn a living you want longer battery life. Everyone complains about that. Part of me thinks we’ll see an upgrade to the 7 and the 8 will be something different all together. But since the 7 had a much similar design to the 6 I can’t see Apple keeping that design for another year. On the other hand I can’t see them going to a new design for just one year, assuming the 8 is what future iPhones will look like. For as many leaks as we’ve had about iPhone it seems like no one really has a good read on what the lineup will look like this fall.
