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, where the domain name would expire in 19 years’ time. Which is a really, really long time down the road when you think about it, and who knows what the iPhone would look like in two decades’ time?
It is interesting to note that Apple does not own iPhone5.com, iPhone6.com, or even iPhone7.com and so on and so forth. Does this mean an enterprising person might opt to beat Apple out on their own game by squatting on future domains? Perhaps – what do you think?
