I absolutely detest "Xs". The way it's spelled makes you want to say "ex, ess" not "ten, ess."

I think they need to call it the 11. Or maybe not number it, and call it the Pro, Air, Edition, etc.

Yeah, it is ridiculous. I never would have guessed that it's called "ten ess"

I imagine it will be called XI (Eleven) but at what point does it start to sound stupid?

iPhone 23?
iPhone 18S

Can it carry on like this? Or will they begin naming it like they name Mac OS. So we could have iPhones names after locations in California?

Or maybe they just start calling them ‘The New iPhone’ for each new release. That’s what I’d hope, as confusing as it may get.

I've heard from <redacted reliable source> the next iPhone will be called Super iPhone XSS Turbo Max 2 // RE:make 2019 SE: Retribution. Now repeat that in Jony Ive's voice.

I hated it when they insisted on pronouncing Mac OS X as OS 10 and I hate it now even more with the S after it. It's a bad marketing gimmick play off of nostalgia.

In the end I use a text replacement plugin (Foxreplace) for my browser and add a couple rules to replace iPhone "X" with "10". It's made sites like this much easier to read.
