    Default Why don't they call the iPhone 5s "iPhone 5s WiFi and Cellular"?

    So I was wondering why Apple doesn't name their iPhones "WiFi and Cellular" like they do with their iPads. If Apple renamed their iPhones like this, would this bug you in any way?

    It'd bug me a bit. I wish that the iPad cellular models names would be shortened.

    Because all phones are cellular and wifi both? Or in other words there are NO wifi only phones.

    Because they don't offer iPhones in Wi-Fi only models like they do the iPad. You could argue that's what the iPod Touch is. But it has its own name so there is no other reason to distinguish the point.

    I'm pretty sure there aren't any wifi only PHONES.

    Sure there are. Apple calls ’em "iPod Touch".
