If you’ve ever paid close attention to Apple’s advertising materials, you may or may not have noticed that the time depicted on Apple’s products is always 9:41 AM.
Apple’s affinity for 9:41 AM is evident across much of the company’s product line. For example, below is a current snapshot taken from Apple’s website depicting OS X Mavericks running on a MacBook Air. The time? Why, 9:41 AM, of course!
So what gives? Why do most official photos of Apple products show the same time?
As one might expect, nothing about Apple’s advertising efforts is ever left to pure chance. Consequently, there’s actually a rather interesting explanation as to why the 9:41 AM timestamp is so darn prevalent.
