Due to which iPhone was lagging, Apple wanted a solution to overcome this as well.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus offered a bump in its specifications. To give it a new look and go with the trend, they needed to bring some changes in their product. The combination of slimmer bezels and the special occasion of their first anniversary Was the right for the launch of iPhone X.

Windows 8 was a big flop!! Microsoft had to recover from the loss. It wanted to put some distance between the flop that was Windows 8 and its successor. It’s a psychological play and a reference to the fact that Windows 10 is a big step on, and far removed, from Windows 8.

Microsoft said it skipped Windows 9 because it wanted to show how big of shift Windows 10 is from past versions and the way the company does things.

The other major reason was it wanted to signify new beginning for a product.
