Exciting times.

When they introduced the X, i thought Apple will fix their naming scheme. Yet, they went back with S model and here we are again, 12th iPhone with 13th iOS and 11 model number.

Next year it will be Apple 12 with naming 12 XS for extra small, 12 XM for extra medium and 12 UXSPL which stands for Apple 12 Ultra Xtreme Super premium Large.

Optional, 14 Aug 2019Huawei had similar camera layout, google will have soon very sim... moreApple know how to sell funny.
And every 3 months we reading about how less and less apple phones are popular and selling.

Anonymous, 14 Aug 2019What's ugly? I like this camera layout more than to put them in ... moreCopying Huawei is ugly.
At least Huawei put camera modules inn middle this is horrible placement.

Love the Community, 14 Aug 2019The X (ten) was named like that to look cool and innovative. It ... moreMy friend even before X there were phones with face ID and notch.
Also phones with less bezzels were before just look at sharp phones.
Which had notch before and were bezeless devices.

Although I couldn't care less about name, pro Max sounds funny.

Maybe next year will have four sizes with the largest being Pro Plus Max.

iPhone 12 Pro Hyper Max
iPhone 12 Pro Hyper Max Bionic 5G

Lobo, 14 Aug 2019In place of the camera it looks like a banned pasted.Yep, it seems that the huge hump was glued improvisedly with a gum or something else at the ugliest place for that shape.

Anonymous, 14 Aug 2019Your proposal is to RetCon 12 years of product names? Also, whe... moreNo, lol, I don't have the power of Time Travel.
I just stated how I would've named the devices, since that's a more logical way of doing it. Basically, if I was Steve Jobs/Tim Cook.

Personally, I would've kept the iPhone 5/5S/SE design as the "S" small variant.
It would get a mild-refresh each year with better Camera module and SoC. Whereas I would have renamed all the Plus or Max models as "L" large variant. This means the "M" medium/pure variant, would end up without a suffix, getting designated as an iPhone 5/6/7/8/9 etc etc. With this model, there's no need to throw in wildcard names like the 5C/SE/X/Xr.

While we're at it, if the Aspect Ratio must be changed, I would've preferred to keep it at either ~11:9 (Root2) Standard or the 16:9 Standard. I would change it to the 21:9 Standard, but I definitely wouldn't do a weird non-standard ratio like 18:9-to-20:9 ...it would just degrade the experience!!

At least they didn't call it the iPhone XI... so many people pronounce the existing ones like the actual letter X, and if they decided to go with XI, well... you could see how much more ridiculous it would sound haha

Steve Jobs has left the chat

dbjungle, 14 Aug 2019That naming convention. They have embraced the madness.In an industry where "Micromax Canvas Evok Power Q4260" flies, it's not that bad :D

Pro Max? Viagra would be jealous on that name :))
