    Does anybody see a problem with this name?  It sounds like "excess" ??!!   It seems the "X" means 10 in roman numerals as many of us know, but many people do not care
    or possibly even know that and the iPhone X is called "letter X" - it can be heard in the wild frequently.  Now, if true,  we may be dealing with iPhone "excess"...
    possibly a poor choice of names, sorry... would love to hear if Tim Cook thinks there is a problem with the company's phone being called "excess"

    I don’t mind “excess”. In fact, I suspect many would embrace it in an “ in your face”, flaunting way.

    I did not like the red dot ... the red circle is nice.  HEY maybe that is what the circle on the invitation is referring to!!!

    Good to see that Apple knows how to pre-release its OWN photos of its products.  I was getting tired of looking at all these "simulations".

    The larger model should finally persuade me to upgrade from my 6s Plus that has served me well for three years and still has 90% maximum battery capacity remaining. I couldn't justify the 7 or 8 and I didn't care for the X's screen dimensions.

    I thought it was iPhone ex, not 10. The naming is even worst knowing they just skipped 9 and have a no-number, an 8, and a 10 out. Whoever designed this layout needs to be flogged.

    I still don't get why it's the "iPhone [number]" or "iPhone [number]+". They don't do that with Macs, and even the iPads have gone the logical course.

    It still should be "iPhone (late 2018)", "iPhone+ (late 2018)", and maybe the "iPhone Pro (late 2018)" and "iPhone Pro+ (late 2018)" in my opinion.

    I agree. “Excess” is back, baby!

    I suspect part of it (and maybe same with the watch) is that people are more likely to upgrade phones more often than computers (until we reach "peak smart phone" ...which is probably if not already here)...and Apple certainly doesn't want to discourage that. So there's a certain "oh that's old" when someone is holding an iPhone 6 and there's an iPhone 10/X. Human vanity and psychology at work. It works on some, even many people.

    10, X and XS are all fine with me.

    They play nicely visually (and phonetically when pronounced incorrectly).

    There are plenty of products with XS in the name and no one usually thinks of 'excess' when they read or here it.

    I'm not convinced on the gold colour but I detest the rose and champagne variants so, depending on how it actually looks it might be ok if it isn't bling style. It would be amazing if the etched a colour mix like the one in the image on the screen onto the glass back. Especially as multi coloured gradient are so popular now.

    That sounds like the script you have written to convince your wife to purchase the gold LCD X model as a replacement for her iPhone 6.

    Apple accidentally blew up the internet. Accidentally. Sure.

    They have two versions running... the third, less expensive model will be the iPhone 9...  or 8S.  This says that eventually they are moving to the double digits, but carrying the single digits as well for people who want to spend less and have different feature sets (home button, TouchID, etc)

    I have a dilemma with this actually. Last year she could have upgraded but chose to replace the battery. That gave her another year with the 6. The X was not on the table basically due to price. That left the 8 series or 7 series as candidates but they look 'old'.

    When she saw my Honor 10 she said 'that's gorgeous!' so now I'm waiting to see pricing and sizes for iPhones without foreheads and chins in a couple of weeks. I'm hoping the rumours of an 'affordable' new phone prove to be true.

    We can argue that a phone is just a phone but she is style conscious and in 2018, high screen to body ratios are the norm and as the phone will have to last her around three years, I wouldn't like her stuck with a big forehead and chin in 2020.

    If this is real, I'm really liking that gold color. It's going to be hard to decide between gold and space gray.

    Pronouncing it iPhone "10" almost a secret handshake for Apple fans who actually watched the keynote.

    The LCD iPhone X model will be much more expensive than the Honor 10.

    I know Schiller would prefer it as 10, but I have got used to hearing it as eX and so have adopted saying if that way too. Wierdly I always say 10 when I’m speaking about iPhone X in other languages though; go figure!
