Apple Could Skip the ‘S’: Patterns in iPhone Naming Rumors Align

Two supposed leaks or rumors state the possible names for the iPhones won’t follow Apple’s standard naming patterns, though they disagree on the final names for the most hotly anticipated iPhone in years.

There would be the upgrades to the current models, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus would be replaced by the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, and then there would be the new model, the iPhone 8.

Others say it’ll have the same bezels as the iPhone 7, but with no home button, at least not on the front. What can we possibly believe? Below, I’ve categorized the largest rumors according to their believability. Hopefully that’ll help us pain a picture of the new iPhone before we see it this fall.
