Apple unveiled three new phones this year, but none of it was as we expected. First of all, the company decided to skip over their 'S' model of the seventh iPhone and jumped right ahead to the iPhone 8 and 8 plus, why? We are not quite sure. Then, they introduced a brand new iPhone in order to mark their 10th anniversary. 

"Say hello to the future" says Apple as they released their special device which has received countless rumours, and has been the most anticipated of the year - the iPhone X. While the new device is beautiful in every single way, there is one thing people are still having a bit of trouble with. And that is how to correctly pronounce the name of the new phone. 

If you are one of those who are wondering what the new iPhone is actually called, then here you go: iPhone 'X' is pronounced iPhone 'Ten.'

Yes, it is written like the alphabetical letter, but when spoken aloud it is the number 10. Do you know why?

The intention behind spelling it X by Apple is for it to be a Roman numeral for 10. X commemorates the 10th anniversary since Apple released their first iPhone back in 2007. Therefore Apple calls their new iPhone the 'Ten' with the roman numeral 'X' to define the number.

The special edition iPhone certainly stood out, and is the device everyone is awaiting for. Forget the iPhone 8, the iPhone X has a gorgeous edge-to-edge display, facial recognition instead of the fingerprint scanner, no home-button to take up extra space, an upgraded camera, a super retina screen and much better battery life. 

Are you going to get the iPhone 8 / 8 Plus, or the new iPhone X?
