Here most of you are Apple lovers and we all love devices and smart gadgets introduced by Apple. Today just normally I raised a question that why the Apple company has used the word “i” before introducing any gadgets? Have you ever thought that why “i” word comes first for the devices like iPad, iPhone or iMac? We are sure that you never raised a question or never get into deep what will be the story behind using the alphabet “i”. So being a writer we studied more on this matter and now going to reveal all the facts about the alphabet “i” in Apple’s devices. To get aware read the content below till end. 

Who introduces “i” in Apple’s devices? 

We are talking about the story that why the word “i” always be there but how can we not inform you of the person behind this. His name is Steve Jobs who is the co-founder of Apple as you all know. He told the media in years back in 1998 where he explained that “i” word stands for Apple’s product branding. He said that the word “i” stands for the “Internet”.

Finally, we get to know that the word “i” basically stands for the internet now it solves our confusion and also for most of the users who always want the answer that why only “i” word used. We have a statement of Steve Jobs who has shared at that time so allow me to show. He said, “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 the internet-simply, fast. And that is what this product is targeting for.”

Only one meaning of “i” is not enough, see other secondary meanings

We think the meaning of alphabet “i”  that is ‘Internet’ is not enough so Steve Jobs said that it has more such secondary meaning. And that is Individual, Inspire, Inform and Instruct. About this secondary meaning, Steve Jobs also said something at that time and guess what we have a statement of what he said. “i also means some other things to us. 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.”

I don’t think that I need to remind you that what is Apple Company. Ever users know the importance and reputation of the Company so while launching the word “i” before naming any device they also present this word on some other matter too. If you remember the event of 2014 in September, they told to media about introducing smartwatch-like iWatch also a mobile payment system with the name iPay. So we guess they don’t want any device to be introduced without using the word “i”.  


When Apple launches something or keep us updated and that didn’t get a good response, how it would be possible. Apple is the one who always jumps on the success pool and never gets any bad image if someone point out anything. This blog is for all Apple lovers and users too to know facts behind the word “i”. Now we guess most of you can feel free because the question of using the word “i” is in everyone’s mind.
