    I don't know about over there in the states but here in the UK there seems to be a lot of confusion about how to pronounce the new iPhones name.
    It IS pronounced iPhone Ten.....
    That's official :)

    Here’s what I don’t get, if this is the “ten” and next year is the 9 then what? Do we have a “ten” again or do we skip to 11? Maybe should have called it the “X” instead...

    I'd consider the iPhone X naming to be a one off for the 10th anniversary iPhone. I wouldn't be surprised to see an iPhone 8S next year as well as an updated iPhone X.

    I know I am guilty of saying iPhone X...I can't seem to wrap my mind around 10... Besides to me, X sounds mysterious like the X factor or the unknown lol...

    I admit too to calling it X right at the beginning....
    It kind of rolls off the tongue easier doesn't it :)

    We could start a new forum for the iPhone X and call it the X-Files.;)

    It is called the 10 because Samsung skipped a number and went from Note 5 to Note 7 then jumped to 8 when they failed twice, so Apple figured they would skip a number too but NEVER failed...lol

    Here’s mid in your eye Samsung

    I'd just rather they call it the 10X... 10 times more power...

    Whatever Apple was thinking it certainly got people talking and guessing which of course is what they want :)

    So next year the XS? Sounds like a couple of 1980s Yamaha motorcycles, one of which was the XS11
