iBook and iAd pluralization

I never knew how I was supposed to be doing this, so I finally just looked it up.

“iBook” is only used to refer to the old laptop, never anything related to the bookstore or reading app, presumably to protect the old laptop’s trademark.


It’s apparently never correct to say “iAds”, although I’m sure nobody would complain if you were referring to them generally that way, such as “I’m tired of seeing iAds in all of my apps.” But iAd is more appropriate when discussing the network itself.

Now I know.
