    Ok, so what about the Mac OS X? Was there confusion about that? Same thing, no?
    I remember people calling it OS ex instead of 10. More so in the earlier days of it.

    I know it’s most likely ‘Ten’ but I call it ‘Ex’. Just like I called OS X ‘OS Ex’

    Is it weird I say “Ex” in my head when I’m reading, but say “Ten” out loud when talking to people about it?

    Huh? My reply of “Wow!....Just WOW!” was in response to someone asking DarlaMack where the X comes from. The X is the Roman numeral for 10. Anyway, Apple could start naming the iPhones in association with the year. For example, “iPhone 2018” or a variation thereof.
    Oh yes I know, I think I meant to have it as a comment and not as a reply, oops. And yeah I wonder how they’ll start naming them, cause I don’t think they’ll keep going with numbers after 10, it would just be weird getting to the point that we’re saying iPhone 16s...

    It’ll be weird.
    They should just call it the iPhone, the iPad, and make things simple.

    I call it a "10" but my pet Parrot insists on calling it an "EX".

    It is rumored that the next iPhone will be called "iPhone Buttered Popcorn"... Don't throw stones at me!

    I talked to Apple support the other day and they called it the X (ex). I said about it being the 10 and the person said they call it both.
    Bought mine in Apple store. Among staff, some said X, some said ten.

    My 19 yr old nephew even calls it the ex. He's usually pretty on point with names and gets annoyed when people use incorrect terminology for tech.

    It doesn’t surprise me to hear people call it the “ecks” but when they said it at the Apple store it kind of surprised me. I only correct family members when they say “ecks” and I just let others call it what they want. It’s still less annoying than the dreaded “iwatch” people.

    Man, I sound like a snob. Hahaha!

    X (ex) sounds cool. Ten sounds ordinary.
