Well, so much for my hoping. I don’t think ‘iPhone X’ is a great name, especially when they’re pronouncing it ‘ten.’ I can only say ‘ex’ in my head when I read it, and the 10/8 dichotomy is just going to confuse people and make the 8s feel old. But if it wasn’t for my recent forced purchase I’d certainly be wanting one.
I hope the rumours are false and Apple don’t call the new iPhone the ‘iPhone X.’ That’s a terrible name, I think. Whichever way you pronounce ‘X’.
