iPhone X and iPhone 8

Tomorrow is a big day or Apple lovers who will finally see the unveiling of the company’s 2017 flagship smartphones but unfortunately, the names of the iPhones have been leaked ahead of the launch event.

Two news sites, who were given access to the unreleased version of iOS have confirmed that the company’s 10th-Anniversary phone will be called iPhone X, though we are not sure who we are supposed to pronounce it; iPhone Ex or iPhone Ten.

The leaked code also referred to two new iPhone 8 handsets, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which were previously thought of as iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.

According to BBC, an anonymous source within Apple leaked the links to iOS 11’s gold master (GM) code that helped 9to5Mac and MacRumors download the software from Apple’s own computer servers.

Other major revelations revealed by the leak included; images of Apple Watch and AirPod headphones, the set-up process for Apple’s new Face ID, and Animoji which are basically animated emojis that will reflect the user’s facial expressions.

As we have previously reported, the iPhone X will not feature a home button and Touch ID due to the arrival of an all-screen OLED display. The smartphone is expected to boast a price of $999 depending on the variant.

Rumors also suggest that Apple will start the pre-orders of the device from 15th September whereas the device will hit the markets a week later on 22nd September.
