    Why I think the next iteration of the iphone will be called iphone X as opposed to iphone 7.

    1) Its the tenth iteration of the iphone - Original iphone, 3G, 3GS, 4G, 4S, 5, 5S/5C (2 models, but still 1 iteration, in my opinion), 6/6Plus, 6S/6SPlus (Go on count them, 6S/6SPlus is the 9th iteration. So the next one will be the 10th iteration). By the way, 'X' is the roman numeral 10.

    2)6S has A9 processor, so I am expecting the A10 or AX to be in the next iphone.

    3)6S has the M9 Graphics chip, so I am expecting the M10 or MX to be in the next iphone.

    4)6S has the iOS 9.XXX going on, so I expect the iOS 10 or iOS X.

    5)Apple loves the 'X' moniker, its been OS X forever now... with current name being El Capitan???

    This is the one time, all the Xs will align itself...

    :D

    I know... I know... I heard it from family and friends already... the next iteration after that will be the XS and have more than we will ever need... hardy har har... I'm serious.

    I think if anything Apple will change the iPhone naming to Mini (4"), Air/no moniker (4.7"), and Pro (5.5"). iPhone X sounds un-Apple in my opinion :D

    I get what you mean Flow39, you say that because it aligns with their desktops, laptops and tablets. However, they had plenty of time to do that since the introduction of iphone 6. Instead they continued with the iphone 6s, and now iphone SE???

    Yeah, no way they use iPhone X. Google, Huawei, and Sony all use X in their phone names.

    Do yourself a favor before it go any further with your imagination from thin air, google "ios x wiki", you should find wiki explain why iOS X is "X". It take 10 second google and 5min reading.

    iOS X will stay as "X", as long as it stayed as same Uni"x" based OS Steve brought from Ne"X"T.

    From wiki link:

    "OS X, whose X is the Roman numeral for 10 and is a prominent part of its brand identity, is built on technologies developed at NeXT between the second half of the 1980s and Apple's purchase of the company in late 1996. The 'X' is also used to emphasize the relatedness between OS X and UNIX."

    o_O OoooooKay then...
    First and foremost, iOS X does not exist yet. However, OS X does exist, so if it was a typo... I will understand.

    Here, I will do you a favor:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Mac_OS
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_OS_X

    Pay close attention. There were Mac OSs before OS X. (Just to get something clear and out of the way, OS is acronym for Operating System).

    And it went from Mac OS 1 to OS 9 (see first link there).

    After that they did build a OS system on Unix and NeXT and called OS X (see second link, it ALSO says what you said and I said that it also represents the roman numeral 10). I will not argue there...
    You are taking the 'X' from Uni'x' and Ne'X'T too literally... iOS was also built on Unix, I don't see an iOS X from the very beginning???

    But, see the bloody versions... its 10.0 (kodiak) to 10.10 (El Capitan) - There is no reason that it should not move on to Mac OS 11... and so on...

    Some use S as well. Not saying I think this will happen but I don't know that others really matter .

    So everyone contribute to wiki is all wrong, and you are right?
    Or do you really know how wiki work?

    Again, it take 5sec to google, and 5min to read.

    I just quoted wiki too... hello????
    I should tell you that I read your site, have you read my sites?
    And I saved you 5sec by providing my links.

    Editted to add: That bit where I said "iOS was also built on Unix, I don't see an iOS X from the very beginning???"

    Was from your source:

    "OS X, whose X is the Roman numeral for 10 and is a prominent part of its brand identity, is built on technologies developed at NeXT between the second half of the 1980s and Apple's purchase of the company in late 1996. The 'X' is also used to emphasize the relatedness between OS X and UNIX. UNIX 03certification has been achieved for versions 10.5 for Intel CPUs,[3] and versions 10.6 through10.11.[4][5][6][7][8][9]iOS, the mobile OS for the iPhone, iPod Touch,[18]iPad, and the 2nd and 3rd generationApple TV,[19] shares the Unix-based core and many frameworks with OS X. An unnamed variant of v10.4powers the first generation Apple TV.[20] Apple also formerly issued a separate line of editions for server use."
