    its hard to tell what apple are going to name the next generation iPhone XR as iPhone XR2 wouldn’t really make any sense and iPhone XR 2019 would be confusing. I would get it would be called iPhone 11R or maybe the iPhone XIR but that still doesn’t sound right.

    What do you think they will name this years iPhone XR?

    I think it’s almost certainly going to be 11R

    XR2.

    Then I think we’ll see the end of the XR line by 2020 as that seems to be when most Apple watchers are predicting a significant redesign for all of the form factors.

    This would be an Apple-y thing to do, but it would also be pretty terrible because of the high price of the non-R models.

    So Ten R Two? That would officially be the worst name ever.

    I wouldn't put it beyond Apple, but at the same time if the next XR is the 11R, what do they call the one after that if they go with 11S? 11SR?

    Since there are rumours of bigger changes in 2020, including all models going to OLED, I think the 2020 iPhones will be 12 (or XII if Apple continues with the Roman numeral thing, which I’m not so sure that they will). That is assuming that 2019 are 11 series, even though they are supposedly keeping the same designs & sizes other than the camera hump.

    Logically speaking it should be the XIR (11R) as the iPhone X range will be 2 years old by this year.

    Agreed. 11R is pretty bad too.

    Actually, since the X, Apple's iPhone naming scheme has been terrible, full stop.

    I'm very worried about this rumour being unable to get the X and XR because of PWM.

    It’s a convoluted mess. Some phones have Arabic numerals (7, 8). Some have Roman numerals (X). The bigger size is sometimes “plus” and sometimes “max.” The faster version is sometimes “s” and sometimes gets a whole new number (why isn’t the 8 a 7s?). Now we have an R for the first time ever, when it really should have been a C to be consistent with the 5-series. There’s no 9 at all. And don’t even get me started on the SE, which uses letters as an abbreviation (special edition).

    I know none of it *really matters* but it’s hard to believe how bad Apple is at this for a company known for total attention to detail.

    They should call them the iPhone R 2019 and the iPhone S 2019
