    Something occurred to me while replying in a different thread. Typically, the S model iPhone is an internal upgrade from the numbered model whereas the numbered model brings new internals and a new design. With that in mind, if Apple introduces an iPhone 8S next fall, will it still have the bezels and the fingerprint scanner? What are your thoughts about it?

    I guess they will go all in and ditch that badly aging faceplate, like almost all other companies are doing. Maybe they should keep a smaller version of the X with slightly less features (like no wireless charging) and a competitive price. Don’t know bout the name, it’s confusing.

    I think they’ll keep the design of the 8 in the past and continue on with the design of the X.

    Depends on what you mean by 8s. I see all iPhones going to the same design as this year's X model. If not next year, then in 2019. When may depend on availability of the oled screens.

    Who knows? I don’t understand Apple’s naming conventions anymore. I’ll reiterate my thought from other threads that Apple will completely do away with numbers. So we’ll have three models released in 2018: iPhone, iPhone Plus and iPhone X. Much like Apple has done with most of their other devices we’ll simply have a new iteration of each model (i.e. 2018 iPhone X).

    This year really confused me on what Apple would do in the future years. They seemed to create a completely differently product line with the X. I honestly don’t see them continuing the 8 line. I see them going all in with the X once they get that device figured out from a design perspective. Really couldn’t see many more phones from Apple with the same design as the 6/6 Plus.

    I’m unsure of what Apple will do with the X but I believe they’ll keep the 8 form factor & that will become the new SE.

    Apple says it all in their ad!
    "Say hello to the future"
    I don't think that means only one device. It's where the iPhone is going with all size options, except maybe the SE.

    I hope it does. That’s the one I’ll get.

    It’s been what....four months?.....and I still HATE. THAT. NOTCH.

    I don’t regret the purchase because it was a first generation device so I’ll keep it and won’t pass it down to family in September. But I REALLY don’t like it.

    My 8 Plus is my baby. If there’s another in that style then that’s what I’ll get, even if it doesn’t have the latest and greatest features.

    NOT into the X.
