What is iOS?


You may have seen the term iOS but if you’re not sure, it could be hard to work out exactly what it is. iOS stands for i Operating System. It is the operating system that runs on all iPod touches, iPhones and iPads.

Think of it as the Mac OS X or the Microsoft Windows of the desktop computing world, but instead for Apple’s smartphones.

This term is commonly used therefore to describe all iPhones, iPod touches and iPads collectively.
