Given Apple's consistent new releases, it's been harder to keep up with the iPhone than the Kardashians. The internet is abuzz with rumors of the iPhone 8 presumably slated for September, but the conversation surrounding it has just shifted gears.
Forbes reports that Japanese tech blog Mac Otakara says there is no such thing as the iPhone 8 or even the iPhone X, and that it will actually be called iPhone Edition. Though Forbes notes that Mac Otakara has been hit or miss in the past with their Apple rumors (and thus we should be cautious about taking their word as fact) they suggest the iPhone Edition does make sense given their luxury watch line is called Watch Edition. We might not see the iPhone 8 as we know it (or as we conjured in our minds) — and if these iPhone Edition rumors are true, its replacement doesn't sound as promising.
The USB-C port we got excited about late last month has been scratched in the prototype. We previously reported the phone was designed boasting a curved organic light-emitting diode or OLED screen display, similar to that on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the Apple Watch, but that also might no longer be the case, according to Mac Otakara.
Perhaps what's most frustrating is the rumor that this hypothetical iPhone 8 we speak of might not even be released by September, Forbes reports, which only buys more time to invent its features. We'll just have to see for ourselves in the hopes that one of them lands under our Chanukah bush.
