This was all the funnier for a French since "ee" is how French people pronounce the letter "i", so that people usually speak of ee-Tunes, ee-Mac, ee-Pod and so forth.

Oddly, though, as far as I could hear the iPhone is pronounced the proper English way. Maybe because Apple had become so popular when it was launched (which was not the case when the iMac and the iPod were launched), that there was some hype associated with it and using the proper English pronounciation was the posh way of exhibiting you're in the know.
