Phil Schiller: You Have 2 iPhones? Nope, You Have 2 iPhone.

Over the weekend, Apple’s executive vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller had a little discussion on Twitter about Apple’s product names. According to his tweets, you are never supposed to pluralize iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, etc.

So if you have two iPhones, you have two iPhone phones, or simply two iPhone. If you have two iMacs, you have two iMac, or two iMac computers. If you have two iPad Pros, you have two iPad Pro devices or two iPads Pro, if you will.

 

Ridiculous, right?

As if Apple has never referred to the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus as the “best iPhones yet”. Seriously, where is this coming from? Other companies don’t say “two Galaxy S7 phones” or “three G5 phones”. Why must Apple speak in such a manner? I guess because it’s Apple and they think they’re so classy (which, deep down, we all kind of know they are), however it’s interesting to get this grammar lesson from the company that brought us the ever-so-popular slogan, “Think Different”. Just sayin’…
