That i in iPhone is one of those highly popular words spoken by you all, however, the entire world is yet to figure out what this alphabet truly stands for.
That “i” letter used for addressing iPhone primarily refers to the “internet” partially and the reason for it being there has a long story behind it.
This name first appeared in 1998 when Apple designed its very first iMac, which was the prototype of 21st century Apple products.
During the same time when Steve Jobs decided to launch his creation he stated,
“Number one use that the consumers say they want to use the computer for, the internet.”
iMac was released at the most crucial period of time, just when the internet was on the verge of becoming epidemic and this concept was primarily used for advertising this computer.
“Even though this is a full-blooded Macintosh, we are targeting this for the number one use that consumers tell us they want a computer for, which is to get on the Internet — simply, and fast.”
Steve Jobs clearly mentioned that his latest creation was solely dedicated for the internet that users will be able to extract full pleasure out of it.
While Mr. Jobs was delivering a speech during the seminar, he included a few bold and italic fonts in his presentation slides saying, “internet”, “individual”, “instruct”, “inform” and “inspire.”
To him and his entire Apple team, the “i” also represented a number of other vital things such as:
“We are a personal computer company, and although this product is born to network, it also is a beautiful stand-alone product. We are targeting it also for education. They want to buy these. And it is perfect for most of the things they do in instruction.”
This gigantic tech company wishes to brand all of its products by using this letter “i” let it be a software or another brand new unique product the world is yet to witness.
