Save $99 on Apple's iPad Air: Now just $500 at Amazon

    Does anyone Agree that the next phone will not be named the iPhone 13. I’m not superstitious but the number is known for bad luck and it could possibly effect sales as smartphone names have done to other companies like Sony so I read once. I can see the competition playing off a Friday Preorder of the iPhone 13 as taboo or something.

    If not i13 then it could easily be named 12s but only if the major change would be a 120Hz display across the line-up but the rumors suggest only the Pro Max will have the faster rate display.

    Has anyone thought of this or am I a closet superstitious

    I've been wondering the same thing. I've heard rumors that the next round of iPhones could possibly be called 12s. It's hard to say. I'm somewhat superstitious, and after all of the issues Apple had with iOS 13, I really wonder what they will do! There were no iPhone 9's... so it's anybody's guess!

    I’m not superstitious so whatever they call it I’ll just roll with it. Heck my rainbow baby was born on Friday the 13th and I chose her birthdate.

    I predict it will be 12s and then a completely new naming scheme next year.
    (Based on gut feeling only, no special talent in fortune telling ).
    I remember even some hotels naming their 13th floor or room 13 12A or so.

    Why not call it the iPhone 2022, since it comes out in September… similar to cars.

    I never even thought about it, but seeing as 13 is one of my fave numbers I’ll definitely be getting the smallest Pro….if it’s called iPhone 13.

    I hope they call it iPhone 13. Superstition over the number 13 is utter nonsense.

    I don’t see any reason why not.
    13 is as good a number as all the others.

    Superstition only held humanity back. It should be forbidden.

    Superstition over the iPhone 13 name is ridiculous. I hope Apple doesn't pander to the superstitious folks, and names it the iPhone 13.

    I think they will call it iPhone 13. We had iOS 13, so what will stop them from calling it iPhone 13?
