referring to iphone 8, iphone 7S, iphone X or something else?
Jony Ive has wanted to introduce an iPhone which resembles a single sheet of glass for a long time and the 2017 anniversary iPhone could be the one.
However, there is another suggestion as Apple Insider claims that Apple could call this year’s iPhone the iPhone X.
The iPhone SE (special edition) is already a thing, so perhaps Apple will go with ‘iPhone Pro’, iPhone Anniversary Edition’ or even just ‘iPhone’ – although naming the iPad 3 as ‘the new iPad’ didn’t go down too well.
The third would be the flagship, and 10th anniversary, iPhone ‘8’.
referring to New iPhone to enter production early, say sourcesCage Chao, Taipei; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Friday 10 February 2017]Makers in the iPhone supply chain will start delivering parts and components for production of the next-generation iPhone series later in the first quarter of 2017, earlier than the schedule in previous years, according to industry sources.
Apple has requested its chip and component suppliers start trial production, inspection and prepare inventories for the new iPhone series earlier than usual, said the sources.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple’s upcoming iPhone range will include two iPhone 7S models and an iPhone 8 with OLED display.
In addition to an OLED screen, the iPhone 8 will come with wireless charging and iris scanning technology, industry sources disclosed.
Apple is more active in placing chip orders for the 2017 iPhone series, and has set more stringent inspection requirements for related chips, components, modules and mechanical parts, according to sources at analog IC vendors.
The New iPhone Will Likely Cost More Than 4 Figures
The issue is, the OLED display costs roughly twice what the current iPhone LCD display costs.
However, I would argue that “iPhone X” would be a better name for iPhone 10.

Gird your wallets, ladies and gents, because the next iteration of the iPhone is expected to set you back over $1,000.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone launch, and Fast Company reports that Apple is pulling out all the stops.
