1 By Launching the “i” Prefix
iPod. iPad. iPhone. We may take it for granted these days, but there was a product that introduced the now ubiquitous “i” prefix to the world of Apple first — and the broader technology industry as a whole. That first product was the iMac G3.
Because of its focus on enabling users to connect to the internet, the “i” prefix for the G3 originally stood for internet. And while other Apple products and services also adopted the moniker, its influence has spread to a variety of third-party and non-Apple platforms and hardware.
