Kudos to 9to5Mac‘s publisher, Seth Weintraub, for a huge scoop. Reporting from Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA), an electronics trade show in Berlin, Mr. Weintraub uncovered what could well be the official names of Apple’s next round of iPhones. Specifically: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone Edition. The news is based on leaks from Apple’s supply chain that wound up in the hands of case makers. Those case makers were confident enough in their intel to start printing up packaging for cases for unannounced iPhones. Read through his entire piece, as he makes a very compelling argument for why this information is likely reliable. If it does turn out to be true, it would mean that Apple is skipping the “iPhone 7s” and jumping straight to iPhone 8 for its base iPhone line. The much-rumored special iPhone, which had been dubbed everything from iPhone Pro to iPhone 8, will be iPhone Edition. It’s a good lineup of names, in my opinion, and I think there’s a lot of merit to this story.
