Sent from ym iPhone was something that rapidly appeared below emails when the iPhone first came out.
At first I tought it was ownership pride by some of my colleagues until I figured out that it is the default setting on the iPhone. Therefore this message comes directly from Apple. Leaves me wondering why they put it in.
It seems to have several aims at the same time. It endlessly spreads the product name around even to those not using it themselves and what seems the better reason to me warns the recipient that the message he receives has been sent from a mobile device. This can have several implications.
“Please forgive the typos I wasn’t at a real keyboard.”
“Please forgive me for sparing the polite hellos and goodbyes writing on a mobile device is annoying.”
“Please forgive me for the content, I was waiting for my late plain at the airport and had silly thoughts”
The last one probably works for private and business mails.
All three interpretations rather leave the writer in a bad light.
Funny observation I shortly made – a colleague of mine reacted to receiving all this iPhone mails by putting “sent from my PC” into his signature.
This on the other hand can mean many things.
A simple joke or a statement about the unnecessity of replying to emails 5 m inutes before one reaches the office.
Interesting to watch how many meanings are carryied by a product feature and how different reactions to it can be.
