Apple Acquires iPhone4.com

Apple has at long last purchased the domain name iPhone4.com on an official basis and this has been a long time in coming, considering the 4th generation iPhone was rolled out to the masses last year. It seemed as though the Whois record for iPhone4.com actually was transferred from Whois Privacy Services to Apple Inc just a couple of days ago and the  domain name would expire in 19 years’ time, it’s interesting to note that Apple does not own iPhone5.com, iPhone6.com or so on and so forth…………..

 

Apple has officially acquired the domain name iPhone4.com, the fourth generation of its iPhone that was released in 2010 and iPhone 4 has been one of Apple’s more controversial devices. Whois listings for the new domains now point to Apple as the owner with brand protection firm MarkMonitor appearing as the registrar as is customary for Apple‘s domains and for iPhone4.com switched from Whois Privacy Services to Apple Inc on July 11. Apple last month took control of iCloud.com just ahead of its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote where it rolled out the service and later registered fifty additional domain names related to the announcements made at the event. Apple may now own iPhone4.com, but according to registrant records the company still doesn’t own iPhone5.com, iPhone6.com, iPhone7.com, iPhone8.com. Apple acquired iPhone.com for an undisclosed amount in 2007, which many speculate the company paid over $1 million to acquire the name. This week Apple also acquired the domain name WhiteiPhone.com for an undisclosed amount.
