Apple renames ‘Trash’ to ‘Rubbish’ for some countries in iOS 9, and ‘Rickrolls’ us on Apple Watch support page


Rubbish folder in Mail iOS 9

Here’s a couple of neat things you might have missed over the past few days: In its latest iOS 9 update, Apple has renamed Mail’s “Trash” folder to “Rubbish” in some countries where the latter is the more popular term. It has also “Rickrolled” visitors to its Apple Watch support page.

While everyone knows exactly what the Trash folder is inside Mail, not all countries use the term frequently. In some parts of the world, “Rubbish” is more common, and now Apple is recognizing that.

Users in Australia have noticed that the “Trash” folder has been renamed “Rubbish” since the iOS 9 update, which rolled out to the public last Wednesday. However, the folder has not yet been renamed in other markets where “Rubbish” is the more common term, such as the U.K.

Another new Easter egg from Apple can be found on its Apple Watch support page under the “Add a friend” section. If you look closely at the image below, you’ll notice the initials spell out “Never Gonna Give Yu Up,” which is a reference to the popular “Rickrolling” meme.

If you’re unfamiliar with this, it’s an online “bait and switch” prank that has been running since 2008 in which users are tricked into watching Rick Astley’s 1987 hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” by clicking a link that has been masked as other content.
