What Does ‘I’ in iPhone Means?,Did You Ever Think..?

There is no wonder that iPhone is one of the most attracted and most wanted smartphones by almost every tech freak in the world. There was never been a flop show from any iPhone till now. This has continued right from the first iPhone which was launched in 2006 by Steve Jobs. But one thing you have to know is that – iPhone is not the first Apple product which name starts with ‘i’, there are several products like iMac, iPod, iPad etc. So did you figure out the common thing in all of these? Yes, what does the ‘i’ at the front of each one of them mean?

The naming pattern began in 1998, when Steve Jobs first released the iMac. Since then, nearly all new Apple products — up until the launch of the Apple TV and the Apple Watch — have been preceded by the lowercase letter.

When Jobs first introduced the iMac, he explained the meaning behind the “i” at the computer’s launch event . In the beginning, it stood for internet. But it was so, so much more. The prefix also stood for individual, instruct, inform, and inspire. So much meaning in a single letter!

“An iMac comes from a marriage of the excitement of the internet with the simplicity of Macintosh,” he said in the announcement. we can’t even imagine a computer that does not have the capability of connecting to the internet. But, when this one first launched, there were few that did.

Since then, the “i” has moved beyond its Internet-centric meaning; Apple probably didn’t have the Internet in mind when naming the original iPod.

When the iPhone was announced in 2007, one of its three key ingredients was Internet communication, bringing the “i” back to its original intended meaning of Internet.

Almost everything Apple makes can connect to the internet now, so the consumer doesn’t actually need a reminder, but it’s still a major part of the brand. For example, when texting from iPhone to iPhone, you are iMessaging, and when you back things up remotely, you’re saving your photos and data to the iCloud

But as Apple continues to grow into other markets, including smartwatches and TV boxes, its famous prefix seems to be falling to the wayside. Instead of iWatch and iTV, we have Apple Watch and Apple TV. Perhaps this is because we no longer need to know our devices connect to the Internet — it’s something we’ve come to expect.
