iOS code names revealedThe Android operating system has gotten quite a lot of attention for its naming scheme that is based on desserts. Well, it turns out that Apple has also been doing the same with iOS – just that the names have only been used internally and not for marketing purposes. Over the weekend, developer Steve Troughton-Smith announced on Twitter the code names for all the versions of iOS. The theme that binds all the names together? Names of ski resorts, apparently. No word on why ski resorts were used, perhaps Scott Forstall or Steve Jobs were big fans of skiing. Hit the break to check out the full list of iOS code names until iOS 5.1:

– 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
