Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Could someone update the tag wiki of the tag to clarify that it is used for Apple's iOS operating system used on devices such as the iPhone, iPad, etc.?

Right now the tag is a bit cryptic and users need to click on it and verify that questions tagged with it pertain to Apple's OS.

Update: I just saw that there is an tag as well. I'm not sure what [ios] is used for, so could someone update the tag wiki with an explanation.

As a side note, when you type in the tags, is not one of the autocomplete options, so this can lead users to not use the correct tag.

I also noticed there is an tag, which should probably also be consolidated.

It would also help if it explained when someone should use vs. in the corresponding tag wikis.

You can use [tag:tag-name] and [meta-tag:tag-name] for tags. – nyuszika7h Feb 27 '11 at 10:12

I think this is now completed for . The tag wiki excerpt now reads:

iOS is a derivative of Mac OS X for mobile devices developed by Apple Inc that is currently used in the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices. While it shares many common frameworks with Mac OS X, it provides tighter security by sandboxing apps and has a different UI framework stack (Cocoa Touch) for managing touch events and memory constraints.

Note further that the following synonyms are now in place:

Note the policy on version specific tags. However, I think ios4 should be kept around for a bit still. – M. Tibbits Aug 26 '11 at 19:44

Is this really needed? Some of the time the questions may be just for a single device so we would need to be very careful about it if it went ahead.
