    We had the following iPhone models to date.

    iPhone
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 4
    iPhone 4S
    iPhone 5
    iPhone 5S
    iPhone 5C
    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus
    iPhone 6S & 6S Plus
    iPhone SE
    iPhone 7 & 7 Plus

    Typically, an S model follows the numbered model and this year would typically be the year of an alleged iPhone 7S & 7S Plus. Yet, there are rumors abound indicating that Apple will also release a 10th anniversary or special edition iPhone, currently dubbed the iPhone 8. If this alleged special edition iPhone will indeed be called the iPhone 8, what would be the name of next year’s iPhone? According to the current naming scheme, next year’s iPhone would be dubbed the iPhone 8. That got me to thinking. If Apple plans to maintain an special edition iPhone, it should be given a ‘Pro’ moniker, in my opinion. That way, it wouldn’t interfere with the current banding scheme. What do you think?

    I say neither. I like the ring of iPhone Edition since this is a one-off iPhone. Next year I think would be the iPhone 8.

    I also like this name concept.

    I'm going to bet on Pro, especially since there are also 7S/7S+ models rumored to be announced.

    I tend to agree because releasing the 7S (and plus) and the 8 at the same time is just a weird message to sell to people.

    If the 10 year anniversary model is a "limited" entry just for this year, I'd go with the iPhone Edition. If it's to be offered each year along with the 4.7" and 5.5" models, then "Pro" is my choice.

    What’s in a name? Personally, they could call it iPhone Garbage and I’d still buy it but most users don’t frequent tech forums, follow Apple blogs, and listen to Apple podcasts like most of us around here do to know the ins and outs of the device. Ultimately, naming is—like D said—branding. If it’s truly a special edition model that will be released alongside the usual incremental model(s) then it should be branded as such. In this case “iPhone Pro” would be more appropriate from a branding perspective.

    I personally would be okay with dumping the numbers altogether like they have with other devices. iPhone, iPhone Plus and iPhone Pro sound pretty cool.

    Eh. I really couldn't care less. The name isn't all that important to me nor would I be moved in either way based on what they brand it as. It's just a name. I'm more concerned with what they offer.
