Logo of iOS

iOS is Apple's mobile operating system. It is used on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The operating system for Mac is macOS.

Name[edit | edit source]

When the operating system of the initial iPhone was made in 2007, it did not have a specific name. It was said to be a part of OS X, as on Apple desktop computers. It got the name "iPhone OS" in 2008. It was eventually renamed "iOS" in 2010 after Apple achieved a commercial arrangement with Cisco. Cisco had been using the name "IOS" for 10 years as the name of its operating system for network equipment.
