Last year introduced a bizarre string of events as far as Apple’s iPhone naming habits are concerned. While the iPhone XR is a model name that wouldn’t bother us too much, the iPhone XS Max might be a mouthful for a lot of people, irrespective of its humongous size and the benefits it brings with that size. This year, according to a tipster, Apple could tone things down a bit, introducing the iPhone Pro name to its product range to make it less confusing.
‘Pro’ Moniker Could as Added as New-Gen iPhones Also Predicted to Offer Pen Support by Analysts
CoinX, who was right on the money when it came to the names of the 2018 iPhone models, states in a tweet that Apple might introduce the ‘Pro’ moniker in this year’s lineup. The tipster hasn’t provided any reasoning for this, but one thought rattling our brain is that the company might make this move to simplify the names of its 2019 iPhone range and possibly future models. We also think that the iPhone 11R’s name will remain unchanged since it will be offered as a cheaper version of the two premium devices and hence, might not hold that ‘Pro’ status.
On the other hand, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max, which might be named iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max could feature pen support, according to analysts, hence successfully supporting that ‘Pro’ moniker. This could be the start of a fresh naming scheme, and for customers, this change might be less of a headache, particularly those who don’t follow news surrounding Apple and not being familiar with the names of the latest models.
“Pro” for iPhone? Crazy naming schemes over the past few years.

We’d still recommend that you treat this tweet with a pinch of salt and wait for more updates. Though CoinX has been right on a few occasions ranging from the 5V/1A charger bundled with the 2018 iPhone family to the removal of the headphone jack on last year’s iPad Pro. As a result, readers might experience a sudden burst of confidence but let us not get too ahead of ourselves.
According to a hint provided by SoftBank’s President, the iPhone 11, or the iPhone Pro announcement could be held on September 10 or September 11, with pre-orders starting shortly after. With the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus officially here, Apple will be next in line to showcase what it has been working on for the past 12 months.
