    iOS version code-names




    While Android‘s dessert-derived code-names like Cupcake and Ice Cream Sandwich are publicly pitched by Google and used by media, Apple’s iOS code-names don’t get anywhere nearly as much attention. Developer Steve Troughton-Smith, however, gave them some Twitter love this morning.



    1.0: Alpine (1.0.0 – 1.0.2: Heavenly)
    1.1: Little Bear (1.1.1: Snowbird, 1.1.2: Oktoberfest)
    2.0: Big Bear
    2.1: Sugarbowl
    2.2: Timberline
    3.0: Kirkwood
    3.1: Northstar
    3.2: Wildcat (iPad only)
    4.0: Apex
    4.1: Baker
    4.2: Jasper (4.2.5 – 4.2.10: Phoenix)
    4.3: Durango
    5.0: Telluride
    5.1: Hoodoo


    Nowhere near as sweet as Google’s, or even the big cat’s Apple uses, very publicly for OS X releases, including the latest 10.7 Lion. Maybe they could spice things up a little.

    iOS Version Code Names Are Labeled After Ski Resorts

    [CENTER]




    Fitting news as the Northern Hemisphere approaches winter and ski season, it has been discovered that Apple internally identifies iOS versions with code names based on ski resorts. The current list of iOS versions and their mountain code names is printed below, courtesy of
    Appleinsider



    1.0: Alpine
    1.1: Little Bear
    2.0: Big Bear
    2.1: Sugarbowl
    2.2: Timberline
    3.0: Kirkwood
    3.1: Northstar
    3.2: Wildcat
    4.0: Apex
    4.1: Baker
    4.2: Jasper
    4.3: Durango
    5.0: Telluride
    5.1: Hoodoo



    There doesn’t appear to be any relation between the popularity of the mountain and the significance of the iOS version, with even some little known ski resorts appearing on the list. Maybe Scott Forstall and the iOS development team are just big fans of snow sports?

    Naming iOS versions after mountain resorts is in contrast to Apple’s desktop Mac OS X being code named and marketed with the names of large wild cats, starting with Mac OS X Cheetah (10.0), Puma (10.1), Jaguar (10.2), Panther (10.3), Tiger (10.4), Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), and most recently, Lion (10.7).
