This Is The Reason The Time On The iPhone Is Always 9:41 In Apple Ads


Google "iPhone 6" or look at any photo from an iPhone event.

The time on the device displayed will always read 9:41.

This specific number is there for a reason, as explained on question-and-answer website Quora.

According to Metro, this is the time several recent iPhones were first revealed to the world.

Quora writer Brian Roemmele said,

Apple pays homage to this monumental occasion by presenting the succeeding iPhones as close to this time as possible.

But iPhone presentations as of late are about a minute shorter than they used to be, so the devices show 9:41 on the screen instead.

Every recent iPhone presentation has been carefully tailored so the device makes its first appearance at this time.

Former Apple engineer Scott Forstall said,

Mystery solved.
