Apple is widely expected to release three new iPhone models this year: the LCD-based update to the existing iPhone 7 series and a whole new iPhone 8 model with an OLED screen and more. While it’s been generally accepted that the LCD-based devices will be named “iPhone 7s” and “iPhone 7s Plus”, the jury is still out on the possible name for the OLED-based iPhone.

An accessory vendor who posted an image of its iPhone 8 screen protector on SlashLeaks today wrote that the OLED-based phone may be marketed under the “Decade Edition” moniker.

This is the first time this particular name has been mentioned.

Be that as it may, we don’t think Apple will released a phone named “iPhone Decade Edition” because we don’t think a screen protector maker would be privy to the company’s plans, but we could be wrong. On top of that, such a marketing name would only last one year.

Apple, of course, began using the “Edition” suffix in conjunction with the gold-plated models of the original Apple Watch, which were marketed as “Apple Watch Edition”.

When the Cupertino giant phased out golden watches following the release of Apple Watch Series 2 last year, the company retained the “Apple Watch Edition” name for its higher-priced models that feature the casing in brilliant white ceramic.

Back in March, the fairly reliable Japanese blog Mac Otakara reported that the next iPhone would be called “iPhone Edition”. Apple probably has multiple name suggestions for the device and it will be up to the firm’s marketing department to pick one ahead of its release.

    The iPhone Decade Edition is nothing when compared to Windows Millennium Edition.

    iPhone decade edition that’s going to leave iPhone 7S AND 7S Plus decay-ed

  • CanadianEh

    They will drop the numbers and go with iPhone and iPhone Pro models…

    • Iskren Donev

      I have wanted this for a long time, however I do not think that it will happen. Come September we will get our 7s and 7s Plus along with our iPhone 8 (best case scenario – iPhone Edition/Pro)

  • Riley Freeman

    what a horrible name

  • igorsky

    Anyone want to place a bet that the iPhone will be called “Decade Edition”? I’m setting the market between 0% and -20%.

  • Jamessmooth

    I like iPhone X myself…

    • Iskren Donev

      I feel that Apple is moving away from the ‘X’ moniker. Case and point – last year they transformed “Mac OS X” into “macOS”.

  • Leopoldo Pereira

    iPhone DE, then?

  • iKhalil

    I only hope the iPhone with OLED won’t cost as much as the gold Watch or even the newest version of ceramic

    That edge to edge display is advertised every year by rumors. Im about 99% sure that the “iphone 8” (next iphone) will have a similar design to the 7(plus).. maybe more colors, that always hypes people up.
    BUT if they do pull this beautiful every year rumored display, Ill make the switch in seconds lol.
