Apple's 2017 flagship will officially be called iPhone X not iPhone 8?

Why the Way You Use iPhone Could Change

Apple will hold a press event on September 12 to unveil its much anticipated new iPhones, which are expected to introduce a whole new design and set the tone for the next few years. While Apple was hoping, like Samsung, to have an under-screen fingerprint scanner, neither company appears to have been able to get the technology to work for this generation.

Some speculate that the new handset will have a glass backing that offers wireless charging. Apple is also reportedly planning to do away with the familiar Home button.

"That has been a sore point, especially in China". However, we also need to mention that there's one more reason why Apple doesn't want to iPhone 8 to ship with 32GB of storage space and that's because it will lower the device's price down. The most talked about feature that iPhone 8 will be equipped with is its storage space.

Flicking or swiping gestures could replace the home button function, enabling the handset face to appear nearly all-screen.

So to sum things up, the iPhone 7S might be iPhone 8, iPhone 7s Plus might be iPhone 8 Plus, and the premium iPhone 8 might be iPhone X or iPhone Edition.




The Sept. 12 event could also feature updated versions of Apple TV and Apple Watch. The new operating system will include an improved Siri smart assistant and Apple Maps.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) last announced its earnings results on Tuesday, August 1st. (NASDAQ:AAPL) by 0.3% during the first quarter, according to its most recent Form 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Huawei was the third-largest vendor, with an 11.3 percent market share.

China-based Oppo and Xiaomi rounded out the top five.

Aside from the possible iPhone 8, Apple is likely announce an array of upgrades to last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The new iPhone 8 is said to come with AR capabilities and facial recognition that could be supported by its rumored 3D-sensing front camera. Apple blogger and expert John Gruber already thinks, that Apple might not name its new line of iPhones under the "7s" nomenclature.
