We are 2 days away from the event of the Apple calendar year when the company reveals the new iPhone models. And yet the leaks are still coming in.
The latest exciting tidbit is what looks to be the official names of the three models Apple is rumored to be announced next Tuesday — and they hint Cupertino is skipping its usual ‘S’ generation convention for this release.
The top-of-the-range iPhone, which will ditch the home button to make way for more screen, replacing the fingerprint-powered Touch ID with a facial recognition alternative, has been mentioned to as ‘D22’ in a leaked iOS 11 firmware build.
But according to a developer who’s been sifting through the firmware the official name will be the iPhone X.
While the other two iPhone models are set to be named the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, according to the leak, meaning Apple is avoiding an iterative iPhone 7s/7s Plus release.
