  • Apple Becomes Rightful Owner of iPhone5.com

    Whatever Apple wants, Apple seems to get. As MMi reported May 7th, Apple has made an effort to secure the rights to iPhone5.com through the World Intellectual Property Organization. Until now, that domain was owned by another non-Apple entity.

    What a difference a month can make. On Thursday, published reports indicate that the World Intellectual Property Organization is going to help Apple gain control of the iphone5.com domain name.

    Although we don't know who the previous owners of the domain were, iphone5.com was registered four years ago and was stamped with the CYA disclaimer that the site is “not endorsed, sponsored, nor otherwise affiliated with Apple.”

    A lot of people are interpreting Apple's efforts in this endeavor to mean that the iPhone maker will call the next-gen device the "iPhone 5." Although the correct moniker remains up in the air, we shouldn't forget that it was just last year when Apple similarly pursued iphone4s.com.
