iPhone X name confirmed


Apple’s redesigned tenth anniversary smartphone will be known as the iPhone X. That’s according to developer Steven Troughton–Smith, who found reference to the devices in leaked code, as well as sources speaking with a host of Apple fan sites.

The name has been widely tipped in recent weeks. The X makes sense in light of it being ten years since Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone.

It also means that the more minor updates to last year’s iPhone range will be known as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. These will retain the same design as the 2016 lineup, but feature an all–glass frame in order to allow for wireless charging.

The news comes just over 24 hours before Apple reveals all at a special event being held on its new Apple Park campus. Tim Cook and co are also expected to launch a new Apple Watch with 4G connectivity, as well as an updated Apple TV with 4K smarts.

The iPhone X, though, will be the star of the show, with facial recognition, dual lens camera and a design which dispenses with the traditional home button.
