MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why is the time on the iPhone always 9:41 in commercials

Today Apple announced it’s new iPhone 13, making your current iPhone instantly feel old. Like always. Over the next few weeks you’ll probably see a lot of commercials for it. If you look close you’ll see the time on the phone is set at 9:41. Just like every other iPhone commercial ever. But why that random time?

This was the time that Steve Jobs announced the first ever iPhone at an Apple Event in 2007. During these events the main product is always announced 40 minutes into the presentation. This one obviously started at 9:00am. Then they give it an extra minute buffer incase things get delayed.

Happy New iPhone Day!
