Apple iOS 11 GM Leaks iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus Epithets, Ditching ‘S’ Suffix

Apple iOS 11 GM update release purportedly leaks iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus nomenclatures and completely ditching ‘S’ suffix for this year.

It seems like the rumors and speculations of an Apple’s iPhone X product name is indeed more suitably to be true, as an iOS developer unearth and discovers mentions of both the iPhone X and iPhone 8 in firmware source code relating to the iOS 11 mobile operating system. This accompanies on from a retail packaging box leak last week from a Dutch tech site has sent us. Our opinion then was that the Cupertino tech giant would opt to stick with the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, and the continued use of the iPhone 8 moniker urges me that I could be wrong.

The tweet from an iOS developer shows that his searches for names turned out to emerged both iPhone X and iPhone 8. This does shocked the industry and the technology media as it is conventional and reasonable to stick with the iPhone “S” nomenclature for the less-impressive handsets — the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus successors — that will be launched in a couple of days alongside the flagship iPhone X. Of course it may be that the tech firm is making such a relatively enormous improvements to the current generations of iPhone smartphones that it doesn’t need the “S” suffix in the product name is quite relevant for this time around. However, there are no policies here, CEO Tim Cook can name these handsets anything he wants, after all he’s the big brass of Apple.

However, let’s dig up further as it would significantly be interesting if the iPhone 8 Plus will be nearly synonymous in features to the top-of-the-line flagship iPhone X. Perhaps the near bezel-less edge-to-edge OLED display is the only component that differentiates from the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. In some manners, this would make a plenty of wisdom because there are rumors and speculations that the tech company is struggling to manufacture the iPhone X in a huge number of units that’s sufficient to meet the potentially massive demand.

Surely, the addition of an inductive wireless charging get several people excited — most especially the Apple zealots. In the past several years there have been setbacks incorporating a wireless charging capability on phones with metal back panels, however, a couple of year ago, Qualcomm asserted to have decode it. Apple and the chipset maker are at court battle at the moment though, which could hinder the former from licensing new the innovative feature from the latter. It’s also most certainly likely that Apple has solved it on its own how to incorporate it on metal back casing.

Apple might also altered the entire look and feel of the iPhone X to be an all-glass form-factor and design. There have been a lot of leaks emerged online that suggest this is the argument, and some concept photos from social media, from Unbox Therapy tweet hints that a glass of sheet on the back panel is materializing.

The most prominent feature, apart from the OLED display, on the new iPhone X has to be the way of unlocking the phone and using it to give go signal for payment in Apple pay. If the Touch ID fingerprint scanner has actually gone forever then that leaves infrared-powered 3D facial recognition in place. The South Korean electronics firm Samsung has just also introduced the Galaxy Note 8, which has facial unlocking feature. It’s a pretty agreeable method to use the handset in an instant. However, the facial recognition on the Galaxy Note 8 as well as in S8 and S8+ is a complete trash in terms of security.

Best Phone: iPhone X vs Pixel 2 vs Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30

A leak from Apple’s very own Homepod’s HomeKit firmware release update corroborate that it’s going to be included though. Additionally, the massive internal leak also verified that the firm is using infrared (IR) – which is how the Redmond-based software giant Microsoft does it on Windows Hello.

Nevertheless, the rumors. leaks and speculation will be determined either way when Apple announce the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in a special media launch event on Tuesday, September 12th.
