Should the iPhone 8 be called the 7S? Most people thought Apple would follow the naming convention they had used for years, announcing the iPhone 7S along with whatever the 10th anniversary phone would end up being. However, what accompanied the X was named the iPhone 8. And Apple fans seemed to go along with it fairly painlessly. Personally, I think it was a subtle effort by Apple to make people with a 6 or 7 phone feel like their model was even older, putting on the subconscious pressure to upgrade to a new design. So I'm voting yes, it should be called iPhone 7S. The 8 isn't hugely different than the 7, adding wireless charging and a new chip. Sounds like an "S" upgrade to me.
