We have seen different versions of Windows Phone and Android, and each has a version number, and a code name. For example, Windows Phone has NoDo and Mango; Android has Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and many more names. Each of the code name represents a version of the OS. But we never saw anything like this happening with iOS did we?
It’s not that Apple is not at all interested in this kind of mindless play, if you call it that. Apple has played this very game with its desktop OS, the Mac OS. We have had Leopard, Snow Leopard, and Lion. Then why did Apple leave out only iOS from this game? Well, it turns out that din’t leave iOS out for the game, but it kept us from getting into the game.
It turns out that right from version one of iOS, Apple had code names for all its iOS versions, but the Cupertino giant never made it public. These code names were used only for internal references. But now, thanks to developer Steve Troughton-Smith who has managed to get the list of all the code names that Apple has used for all the iOS version released to date. You can see them all given below.
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
3.2: Wildcat (iPad only)
4.2: Jasper (4.2.5 – 4.2.10: Phoenix)
And yes, there is no mention of iOS 6 at the end of the list, hope you were looking out for that. So, which version of iOS do you have, Hoodoo?
