Here’s What The “i” In iPhone Stands For

Apple is known as one of the pioneer tech companies in the world. As well as its signature products such as the iMac, iPad, iPod and iPhone.

But a lot of people are still baffled on what the “i” in Apple products stand for?

Steve Jobs first introduced the prefix “i” during the launch of “iMac” on a keynote event way back August 1998.

However, it is not Steve Jobs who came up with the name “iMac”. Ken Segall an employee of L.A advertising agency handling Apple’s account pitched the name to Steve Jobs. According to Segall, the “I” stands for “Internet”, but it also represents “individuality” and “innovation” as what the product also signifies.

“iMac comes from the marriage of the excitement of internet and the simplicity of Macintosh.”Steve Jobs said during the 1998 Keynote.

Apple later adopted the prefix “i” across its consumer hardware and software products.
