Do you know why the time always is 9:41 am on any iPhone screen ?


Whenever anyone says iPhone /Apple Phone a different shine comes in our eyes, as everyone wants to have an iPhone somehow. But let’s take you to an interesting thing about the iPhone.

Have you ever noticed whenever there comes an advertisement for any Apple phone the time always is 9:41 am. If a company like Apple is doing this in every advertisement then there would be surely a reason behind that. So, don’t worry we will tell you about that reason today.


The time that you see on Apple devices comes from the historic keynote presentation when first Apple Phone was first unveiled. That moment when the Apple CEO Steve Jobs was going to announce the official launch of first ever I Phone.While Steve was rehearsing for the presentation that he was supposed to give during the 2007 Mac world Conference & Expo, he calculated that the slide which has the newly launched iPhone would appear at around 9:41 AM. Taking cue from it, he instructed the advertising folks at Apple to prepare a device that had 9:41 AM as the time.

Needless to say, the visionary was so accurate that when he presented the slide it was almost the same time. A testimony to this comes in light some years later when Scott Forstall who is senior vice president of iPhone software said, “We design the product launch keynotes so that the big reveal of the product happens around 40 minutes into the presentation.

When the big image of the product appears on screen, we want the time shown to be close to the actual time on the audience’s watches. But we know we won’t hit 40 minutes exactly. And for the iPhone, we made it 42 minutes. It turned out we were pretty accurate with that estimate, so for the iPad, we made it 41 minutes. And there you are the secret of the magic time.”

So it’s very interesting fact you know about an iPhone, a gadget for which every aged group people is dreaming about.
