Here's the real reason why the next Apple smartphone is called “iPhone 8”

per Fang C.

Yes, be yes "IPhone 8".

Forget X, Y or Z. Apple calls its next smartphone ?iPhone 8? for one main reason: China. And be prepared to be surprised by another sales record, even if the device is more expensive.

We see in several news that Apple has increased its investments in China and has been influenced by Chinese supersties. The launch of the golden version of the iPhone was a great example of this. For the Chinese, the consumption of gold or whatever color represents is enormous, and this fascination can be seen inside houses, offices, shops, etc.

And it will not be different with the number 8. The value that eight has in China is even higher than gold now imagine the combination of the two! So, I venture to say that the ?iPhone 8? in the golden version is the best-selling device on the Chinese market. That's because the number 8 represents luck, prosperity and success.

The Beijing Olympics, for example, opened on 08/08/08 at 08:08, and the most expensive cell phone number in the world was with the combination 88888888, being sold at R $ 1.1 million. Even most restaurant Wi-Fi passwords are only 8 8s (as can be seen in the photo below, which I recently registered) and I even witnessed the sidewalk of a hotel with 8-shaped cobblestones, I forgot to take a picture.

Then, I remember Steve Jobs' famous line: People don't know what they want until we show it to them. However, when Apple looks at the Chinese market, it takes a deep breath and says: We know what Chinese want, so let's give it to them.

Now we just have to wait until September 12th and see if all the rumors are confirmed.
