Ever Wondered What Does ‘i’ and White Lines On iPhones Mean?

Almost every product manufactured by Apple has an initial ‘i’ in its name. Yes, there lies a unique branding strategy in naming their products. However, this strategy has a hidden message for us all. Except for a few products and apps like, Macintosh, QuickTime, etc., what is the reason behind Apple’s strategy in naming the products with an initial ‘i?’

Apple was developed by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne on April 1, 1976, in Cupertino, CA.

The fact of the day: Yesterday, Apple sold its 1 billionth iPhone!

In case, if you’re wondering that the ‘i’ in Apple products is named after a person, then here’s a reaction from Steve Jobs…


Here’s the actual meaning of ‘i.’


iMac was the first Apple product which started with ‘i’ which was launched in 1998. During the product launch of iMac, Steve Jobs told that ‘i’ refers to the Internet. Those were the early days of the Internet and iMac was aimed to provide faster access to the Internet. In his exact words, Jobs said: “iMac comes from the marriage of the excitement of the Internet with the simplicity of Macintosh.” 

He continued to explain with a slide that ‘i’ also stands for the Internet, individual, instruct, inform, and inspire.


What These White Lines On iPhones Mean?

Apple products are perfect examples of design and perfections and talking about the iPhone; it is an example of exquisitely fine and brilliant design. It is designed with a clean architecture and in an organised way which makes you feel like a king when you hold this product in your hand.

But, have you ever noticed those two lines on the back of iPhone 6? Did Apple put them just for the look or are they the part of any circuitry?

Please answer this

If not, do it now!

What do you think?


Let’s not make wild guesses and read further.

Yes, they are part of the antenna. But, what kind of an antenna is that?

So what? How is that related to those antenna strips?

Got the point?

That’s why iPhone 5/5S didn’t have these strips.

I guess you hate it too. Do you?



Apple got the patent to pass the signals without these lines.

Oh! I forgot! iPhone 8 is coming soon.
