    We get to the 10th iPhone.
    Not 10th gen, but like the one that should be named iPhone 10.

    Wouldn't that be strange?
    You can only go so far, like if we have iPhone 69 that wouldn't sound too good for PR.

    Don't worry about iPhone 69, that'll be 126 years away.

    It will just be called iphone.
    Or iphone air, iphone pro or any other naming.
    I wouldn't worry much about it.

    I'm worried about my future grandchildren. Knowing how bad our society is, they will market the iPhone 69 in a very obscene manner. I don't want my grandchildren being corrupt.

    Have you seen Apple advertise anything obscene yet? I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Hey that's true. I guess Apple is more of a classy business then others and won't stoop to that level.

    Still... I can imagine crude jokes being made when we get to the iPhone 69.
    Am I alone on this?

    Do you think this is a laughing matter? That scoffing emoticon has me outraged. :mad:
    This is a legitimate concern.

    You'll finally be able to view the homescreen when your iDevice (iPhone, I guess) is oriented upside down!

    edit: Nevermind haha!

    I feel violated.

    The fact that you keep mentioning the number 69 leads me to believe that...

    A. You have quite a few decades until you will be of age to have kids, let alone grand kids.

    B. You may need to grow up some before you find some one to procreate with.

    ----------

    Most likely because it was too vague of a thread title.

    iPhone X seems like a cool name for number 10. But 11 would then be a problem unless they maybe go X1.

    I'm concerned about the effects of climate change, landfills filling up with items that take centuries to break down, and financial and political stabilization of our society.

    And you're concerned about the name of a phone. :rolleyes:

    We are already coming up on the eight iPhone. Do you really think you'll be dead by number ten?

    I doubt we'll be using smartphones by then. The iPhone will join pagers and become antiquities.

    1. iPhone
    2. iPhone 3G
    3. iPhone 3GS
    4. iPhone 4 (Followed by a CDMA iPhone 4 with a slightly different design/SKU)
    5. iPhone 4S
    6. iPhone 5
    7. iPhone 5C
    8. iPhone 5S
    9. ???
    10.??

    So we're already basically at a phone that could be called iPhone X. Assuming the rumors are true, we'll be seeing two sizes for the upcoming model. I don't believe Apple will just eliminate the 4" model either.

    Perhaps this next generation will be iPhone X and simply come in various sizes. There's already branding confusion with Samsung's S4 & S5 (for average consumers) so now is as good a time as any to break away from the number system. It has to happen some time.

    I'd imagine that in the future each model will just be called iPhone and with multiple sizes there isn't much reason to keep around older generations, so it makes sense to me.

    I've never been that concerned over how companies come up with the names for their devices. I'm sure the folks at Apple will come up with something that's tasteful so we don't have to worry about iPhone 69. lol
