Apparently, Y'all Have Been Pluralizing Apple Devices The Wrong Way.

Another day, another grammar, this time, from Apple’s executive – Phil Schiller Apple’s global head of marketing.

What do you say when someone has two Apple phones? If you have been saying 2 iPhones like everyone else on planet earth, Phil feels you have committed a grammatical blunder.

New grammar alert: You are not supposed to pluralise the names of Apple products. So, instead of saying two iPhones, you should say two iPhone devices. Or instead of iPad Pros, it should be iPad pro devices.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can get used to saying 2 iPhone devices when I can just say 2 iPhones. #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat.
Grammar Freaks, what do you think?

    … WELL, I WILL WANT TO SAY HE’S RAISING A POINT OF ARGUMENT IN GRAMMAR CLASSES. BUT IMO, HE’S TRYING TO MAKE US BELIEVE THAT THEIR IS NO REASON PLURALIZING APPLE PRODUCTS WHILE CALLING THE NAME APPLE. FOR INSTANCE, JEANS IS NOT A MATTER OF SINGULAR AND PLURAL. FISH CAN ALSO HAVE ZERO ALOMORPH. ITS SIMPLE, BUT I DON’T HAVE TIME. THIS IS A WORLD OF CLIPPING WHERE SPAGHETTI BECOMES SPAG, WHERE NIGERIA BECOMES NAIJA. PEOPLE WANT TO DO EVERY THING TO CUT TIME AND HE’S TRYING TO SLOW THEM DOWN.
    IF I WERE TO BE IN ‘ FRANCE’ NOW, I WOULD HAVE SUED HIM TO A LANGUAGE COURT…
