Apple iPhone will be celebrating its tenth anniversary on September 12 by launching what many believe to be the iPhone 8 or the anniversary edition along with iterative ‘S’ updates to the iPhone 7. Apple’s naming convention is something that no one is able to guess yet but just for the sake of it, we will be calling the anniversary edition of the iPhone as iPhone Edition further up in this piece. Apple focuses on a two-year refresh cycle and rightly so, comes with a newly designed iPhone every two years. The iPhone anniversary which, for a company of this magnitude, is a really big occasion, falls in the second year of the cycle.
Since its launch almost a decade ago, the iPhone was said to be a revolutionary product. Steve Jobs himself said that with the iPhone “Apple is going to reinvent the phone.” With iPhone Edition, we expect that many features on it would only be perfected till the next year. The rumour mill has been churning out details, specs, images and renders of the purported iPhone Edition. Many have been corroborated by insiders and experts on the subject but it is still a speculation at the end of the day. Will Apple launch an iPhone Edition at all? We’ll get the answer to that on September 12 but till then here’s how the much awaited iPhone Edition could be like.
