As the iPhone 8 release dates approaching, iPhone 8 is shaping up to be one of the most impressive Apple smartphones to date. Whenever we open the Google site, spilling details about Apple’s iPhone 8 are here and there. Now in this blog, we round up everything we know about iPhone 8 so far. Still, your information are also warmly welcomed.
Let’s take a look at Apple’s standard naming scheme at first:
2007 – iPhone
2008 – iPhone 3G
2009 – iPhone 3GS
2010 – iPhone 4
2011 – iPhone 4s
2012 – iPhone 5
2013 – iPhone 5s
2014 – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
2015 – iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
2016 – iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
2017 – ?
Since Apple is rumored to be planning to produce three iPhone models in 2017 for it’s 10th-anniversary celebration, the potential naming scheme is totally confused. Some rumors are that the two other devices could be called the “iPhone 7s” and the “iPhone 7s Plus” with their similarity in style to the existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. In that way, as Apple’s 10th-anniversary smartphone launching alongside the two devices, iPhone 8 is tipped by some to arrive as the ‘iPhone Edition’ or ‘iPhone Pro’.
According with the 10th-anniversary celebration, the iPhone 8 is most likely to be announced in September 2017 if everything goes well. However, some analysts claim that due to issues with its Touch ID sensor, supply chain and “technical challenges”, production could be delayed. And so far there is no certain time when the smartphone can make itself onto shelves.
