You say iPhone, we say…
The possible conflict arose because, although ‘Aiphone’ and ‘iPhone’ are spelled differently in English, the Japanese rendering of both is exactly the same.
Aiphone the company says it has “reached a friendly agreement with Apple” that allows both to use the Japanese version within Japan.
