Apple held a huge event on Tuesday evening (September 12), in which it announced the launch dates and features of new products that "will set the path for technology for the next decade".

As well as its first ever cellular built-in Watch and the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus complete with wireless charging, the tech company introduced a surprise new product.

That product was the iPhone X.

Also known as the iPhone 10 (cya, iPhone 9), the X took iPhone 8's wireless charging and raised it a Face ID system (which also links to Apple Pay), as well as an edge-to-edge OLED display with no home button, thus completely trumping the iPhone 8 model.

This didn't go unnoticed by people on Twitter, who questioned Apple's decision to upstage the launch of its brand-new iPhone... with the launch of another brand-new iPhone just two months later.

(The iPhone 8 arrives in September, with the X coming shortly after in November).

And here are the memes that prove it:

So what gives with Apple upstaging its own mobile device?

Well, releasing the iPhone X (10) this early seems to suggest the company is making very rapid technological advancements indeed.

By offloading the iPhone 10 on us extra early, does this mean Apple has much bigger plans in store for the future?

We sure hope so. Our bank accounts, on the other hand...
