Oops: Did Apple really just confirm iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus names?
Surely, Apple is very busy updating its websites internally for tomorrow's big launch of the next iPhone generation. Something must have slipped through though cause a user from Hong Kong discovered entries for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus while browsing through the accessories section of Apple's Hong Kong store. After a site refresh the entries were gone, luckily for us, the thoughtful user was able to capture a screenshot and shared it with us on reddit. (also see below)
So at least the version number of the next generation iPhone is all but confirmed by this slight slipup. There was much discussion about the name of this year's iPhone because of the few design changes compared to last year's iPhone 6s. Also there was talk about the moniker for the 5,5 inch model, which, according to some rumors could have been called "Pro" instead of "Plus" this year, mainly because of the iPad Pro-Connector that turned up on some renders and dummy-models. Obviously Apple decided against any experiments to avoid confusion and went for the traditional naming cycle even though the iPhone 7 will most likely not have a new design this year.
