Apple will skip two numbers, eight and nina, and pick 10 for its new iPhone. Apple?s first iPhone was completed about ten years ago. So, in order to mark the tenth anniversary of iPhone series, Apple wants to name the upcoming phone as ?iPhone 10.? The device is likely to come out in September 2017, a couple of days before iPhone?s tenth anniversary.

?The tenth anniversary of the iPhone will be a big thrust going into September of 2017,? said Analyst and Creative Strategies President Tim Bajarin via email, according to Mashable. ?However, Apple has not officially confirmed the name ?iPhone 10? for its upcoming iPhone.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has speculated that Apple iPhone 8 will carry 5.1-5.2-inch OLED display. ?We predict OLED iPhone will adopt a 5.7-5.8-inch flexible OLED panel (with Samsung (KR) as the exclusive supplier). Nonetheless, for ‘specific design purposes,’ the actual active area may be around 5.1-5.2-inch. Other than the OLED model, we expect Apple to launch new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch TFT-LCD iPhone models,? Kuo said.

He had also predicted the possibility of Apple redesigning the telephoto lens. In his opinion, Apple will add an OIS function to the telephoto CCM in order to enhance the selling points of next year?s new iPhone. With the telephoto lens, iPhone 8 can click better quality pictures and optical zoom range will be improved. Apple may develop new sensing technology. Through this technology, iPhone 8 can respond to a user?s touch, according to COMPLEX. ?The patent published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office has given a clue that Apple is preferring a digital crown for iPhones and iPads. Apple may use ceramic instead of steel to create iPhone 8.
