Apple is still over half a year away from unveiling its new iPhone, and now we're beginning to get a clearer picture of what to expect from Apple and its new iPhone - which is being called iPhone 8, iPhone 10, or iPhone X - depending on what you read.

Apple's new iPhone being referred to as 'iPhone X' |

Skipping the iPhone 8... as well as the iPhone 9, would be a strange move - but if the iPhone X is a big of a leap as what we're being teased about, it makes sense. iPhone X could be perfect timing as 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone - and 10 in roman numerals is... X.

Forbes has an interesting take, talking about the 2018 iPhone... so if we compare iPhone X against the competition and their naming schemes, Samsung has its Galaxy S8 out this year - Apple would be at iPhone 8S next year, while Samsung releases the Galaxy S9. Samsung would get to the Galaxy S10 in 2019, while Apple is stuck on the iPhone 9S.

A new naming scheme for a radically new iPhone would be perfect, and I'm really digging the sound of iPhone X - what about you? Especially if Robert Scoble and the latest rumors are right, and the new iPhone X is just a clear piece of glass with a compute stick. Give it to me, now.
