Due to the sheer number of leaks this year, I think it’s a safe bet to say we’ll see the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X Edition at Today’s Apple event.
While we know a lot about the new iPhones due to the numerous leaks, there’s one thing people are still unsure of. How will the “X” in iPhone X be pronounced?
Here’s what I think…
Apple dropped the X from “OS X” last year so it matched the naming convention of iOS and tvOS (maybe the iPhone X is one of the other reasons they decided to drop it). When an X was used in the name of Mac OS X, Apple pronounced it as “Mac OS ten”. Most people just say it as they see it, and called it “Mac OS eX” (to the annoyance of many die hard Apple fans).
While this years iPhone launch does indeed mark the tenth anniversary of the first iPhone, I think Apple has learnt its lesson and will pronounce the name as “iPhone eX Edition”, not “iPhone ten Edition”.
I guess we’ll find out within the next few hours!
