Will the new iPhone be called iPhone 9 or iPhone 11?

There is a huge debate going on the internet as well as in real world about upcoming iPhone. Whether it will be called iPhone 9 or iPhone 11 is one of the hottest topic of the debate. Here in this article, I’ll jot-down points that favor why the upcoming iPhone could called any of these.

While there are strong chances the new iPhone will be named as iPhone 9, some analysts believe the new iPhone wouldn’t be called iPhone 9, it will be known as iPhone 11 instead. It has become a kind of trend that whenever any new iPhone is due for release, people start to talk about it be it release date, price, specification, features or the name.

iPhone 9 or iPhone 11?

While there is equal chances that the new iPhone  can be called iPhone or iPhone 11, but we anticipate there is high chances of it being iPhone 9.

It is because of the fact that iPhone X that many people say its iPhone 10 (X is roman equivalent) is an special edition iPhone that the company decided to launch on completion of ten successful years of iPhone !

The “X” in iPhone X doesn’t denote number 10 and hence the company will continue from the current iPhone 8 and most probably, the next model of iPhone will be called iPhone 9 !

Take a look at the names of different models of iPhone:

Year iPhone
2007 1st iPhone
2008 iPhone 3G
2009 iPhone 3G S
2010 iPhone 4
2011 iPhone 4S

2015 iPhone 6S & 6S Plus
2016 iPhone 7 & 7 Plus
2017 iPhone 8 / iPhone 8 Plus/ iPhone X
2018 iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus

If you look at the above table, there has been great consistency in the naming of every new iPhone except this years iPhone. The company should have come up with iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus this year instead of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

If we ignore this year’s exception, it is pretty much clear that the new iPhone will be iPhone 9 and not the iPhone 11.

However, some big websites such as MacWorld UK, Expertreviews uk believe that the new iPhone will be known as iPhone 11 and no iPhone 9. The analysts at expertreviews also anticipate that new iPhone could be named as iPhone XI which is a roman equivalent of 11.
