Here’s what the “i” in Apple’s iPhone actually Stands For

The reason why people prefer Apple products is because of their stunning look, extraordinary features, and better hardware. On April 1, 1976, Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. Now everyone in the world knows the Apple brand iPhones, iPads, iPods, iTunes, and more of these products have been part of our lives.

Since iMac was released in 1998 the “i” prefix was marked in most of the Apple products. Have you ever imagined what does “i” really means? Why “i” was always present before the word Phone in an iPhone? It’s possibly one of the most well-known devices in the world but nobody is completely sure what the ‘i’ in Apple’s handset name stands for.

Here’s What ‘i’ in the iPhone Stands for:

The “i” at the beginning of almost every Apple devices refers to the “Internet”. Steve Jobs once told during the product launch of iMac that “i” stands for the internet. Back in 1998 which were the early days of Internet and iMac was specially designed to provide faster internet access.

Steve Jobs said “iMac comes from the marriage of the excitement of the Internet with the simplicity of Macintosh,” he said. “We are targeting this for the no. 1 use that consumers tell us they want a computer for, which is to get on the Internet simply and fast. And that is what this product is targeted for”

This is the iMac Introduction Video by Steve Jobs:

Steve Jobs also showed a slide regarding the Apple’s prefix “i” and displayed that Apple’s prefix “i” also stood for an individual, instruct, inform and inspire. Steve Jobs also said that the devices are focussed on education too “We are a personal computer company, and although this product is born to network, it also is an excellent stand-alone product”

However, the famous prefix ‘i’ has been removed to refer to devices as Apple’s recent products have been given names like ‘Apple Watch’ and ‘Apple TV’. Maybe, this is because we no longer need to know our devices connect to the Internet.
