Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I think should be created as there are increasing number of questions regarding this new device.

See these questions

The tag can't be created because already exist and there is some restriction given that the difference is only a letter.

We can't just create a tag. We need questions that would fit under the tag. –  animuson Sep 21 '13 at 3:35

I don't know if we really need a different tag, but there are already several questions and the problem is a tecnical one as I noted in my suggested edit. –  madth3 Sep 21 '13 at 3:44

I really don't understand the point of these iPhone tags. The iPhone is just a device that uses other programs to function, such as iOS. Why aren't we just using those tags? Am I missing something huge here? For example, how would this question benefit from an iphone-5s tag? –  animuson Sep 21 '13 at 3:48

Well, the 5s does have three new things going for it hardware wise -- a 64-bit processor, the new fingerprint reader, and the new motion detection chip. But wouldn't those features make better tags? –  Charles Sep 21 '13 at 4:11

You cannot create this tag because it looks like a plural for the existing tag. Only moderators can create such a tag.

But that wouldn’t be a good idea: Stack Overflow is about software, not hardware. If you ask a question about a specific API or software feature in the new iPhone, use tags for this API or feature. They will probably exist in the next iPhone too, and then the hardware tag would be useless, while the software tag would still help.

I think, it needs to be! It really will helpful in case of things like whether we want to at least see, if the Touch ID is enabled or not on the device?
