    There is not even a week left until the launch of iPhone 8, but the rumors centering the smartphone refuse to stop. The internet is flooded with leaks claiming to reveal some information about the device.

    Confusion regarding iPhone 8's name continues with new leak

    We all know that iPhone 8 is the 10th-anniversary model. This is why some reports have claimed that it may not be named as iPhone 8. The other possible options are iPhone Pro, iPhone X, and iPhone Edition. Publications such as CNBC, iCulture have claimed to get the information from reliable sources. However, a Twitter post by popular leakster Evan Blass suggests otherwise.

    The Twitter post contains images of the packaging of two protective cases meant for the upcoming iPhone. Well, looks like this year's flagship from Apple will be known as iPhone 8. So there will be surprises with the name.

    Meanwhile, some rumors are also suggesting that Apple may refer the expected iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus respectively. Whereas the iPhone 8 may carry a different name. Going by a recent rumor, the iPhone 8 may even be called as the iPhone 10 for obvious reasons.

    Having said that, we are not too convinced with this theory. If Apple does call the new handset as iPhone 10 then how will the company avoid the confusion when the product reaches its 10th generation.

    Well, you must remember all of these are just leaks with no solid evidence to back up their claims. So you are ought to take the information with a pinch of salt.
