Have you ever wondered why Apple uses the time 9:41 in its iPhone and iPad ads? Although you have not paid attention to this detail, behind it is a curious story of why Apple places this time on the screens of its devices as a promotional image.
Everything we see has its explanation and the time 9:41 also has its own, it's far from coincidence. Basically Apple displays this time on its devices since it corresponds to the exact moment when the first iPad of the apple company was presented.
It used to appear at 9:42 h
But that's not all, before the time that appeared was 9:42 since at that moment one of the devices that would mark the beginning of a new device that has become famous throughout the world, the first iPhone in history. That day at that time Steve Jobs said the famous phrase: “Today Apple is going to reinvent the telephone”.
Immediately thereafter appeared the iPhone, the company's first easy-to-use and well-designed touchscreen phone. From there, the iPhone became one of the best-selling and most coveted phones for all, despite its high price.
As I already mentioned, this time was later changed to 9:41 h coinciding with the launch ofCompany's first iPad tablet.
Why not the exact time?
Another aspect that may call our attention is that 9:41 is not exactly an exact time, such as 9 o'clock or 9:30. But as it happens with the previous thing also its explanation.
According to the former head of iOS, Apple designs its speeches based on the fact that its flagship product presents it after 40 minutes since it the presentation starts.
What Apple wants is for the time that appears on the device to be the same as the time people attending the presentation have on their terminals or watches.
