Before Apple decided to call the iPhone, the iPhone, it kicked around other names.One of the names that was close to being picked? “iPad.”
That comes from 9 to 5 Mac, via Ken Segall’s book, “Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple’s Success.”
The funny thing about that is that when Apple did reveal the iPad, the name was mocked. Now it doesn’t seem so bad.
