Sorry why can’t it be called makes sense to me. I preferred why Apple used that naming convention

In this day and digital age, with all the scientific and technological advancement, people are still superstitious? iPhone 13…. 13…. 13…. 13!! XIII Fear that, you triskaidekaphobic bunch.

I don’t mind sticking with the same name, but considering how largely the same the design has been even as we are seeming to get a smaller notch
