Rumors iPhone Could Have a New Name

iphone-1067989_960_720.jpg Apple has been the topic of countless rumors—most centered on its plans for the next iPhone and even what it might call the handset. And speculation has run rampant after CEO Tim Cook was spotted having dinner this week with Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

Apple might call a rumored handset the company has planned that could commemorate the iPhone’s 10th anniversary.

Still, Apple (AAPL, +0.33%) has remained silent all week, leaving all the speculation and guesswork to the rumor mill. But that doesn’t mean it was a dull week for Apple. In fact, it shed a bit more light on what the future might look like for the company’s critical handset division.

Apple is rumored to be working on a big new iPhone update that could feature an all-glass design, curved screen, and wireless charging, among other features. The device has been rumored to be named the iPhone 8 or iPhone X. But a new report this week says Apple might actually call it the iPhone Edition. And although it’s believed it will come with an all-glass design.
