Apple iOS Platform Internal Codenames Revealed By Version

You don’t have to be an Android user to know Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich are codenames for Google’s Android platform just as you don’t have to be a Windows Phone user to know that NoDo and Mango are the two updates for the Redmond-platform. But how about Apple’s iOS?

We know iOS by version numbers, as in iOS 4.2.3, iOS 5.0, and so on. Turns out Apple is also using codenames to refer to its platform revisions, as unveiled by developer Steve Troughton-Smith. Here are the codenames listed right next to the version number:

iOS 1.0: Alpine (1.0.0 – 1.0.2: Heavenly)

iOS 1.1: Little Bear (1.1.1: Snowbird, 1.1.2: Oktoberfest)

iOS 2.0: Big Bear

iOS 2.1: Sugarbowl

iOS 2.2: Timberline

iOS 3.0: Kirkwood

iOS 3.1: Northstar

iOS 3.2: Wildcat (iPad only)

iOS 4.0: Apex

iOS 4.1: Baker

iOS 4.2: Jasper (iOS 4.2.5 – 4.2.10: Phoenix)

iOS 4.3: Durango

iOS 5.0: Telluride

iOS 5.1: Hoodoo

File this under “miscellaneous” as there really is no “news” to it but it’s good to know that at least a handful of people might refer to Telluride running on the iPhone 4S. How’s the Hoodoo Beta treating you battery life-wise?
