What does iOS actually mean?

iOS is an abbreviation for Internetwork Operating System. That in turn means that iOS is an operating system like Windows or Linux.

Apple's iOS emerged from the Macintosh computer operating system, Mac OS X. The Apple software for the iPhone was first presented in January 2007. Steve Jobs then referred to the new operating system as "Mac OS, which runs on the iPhone " in front. Apple did not adopt this funny, but somewhat lengthy name. The mobile operating system for the iPhone was simply called "iPhone OS". This name lasted until mid-2012, when Apple changed the name of the software again slightly. This was necessary because the operating system is not only installed on the iPhone, but now also on all other Apple mobile devices such as the iPad and iPod Touch. Since June 2012, you have come across the term iOS on Apple's mobile devices.
