What is ix.Mac.MarketingName?

Panic developer Cabel Sasser noticed a strange bug in the iTunes App Store this evening. As part of the hardware requirements on several new apps, a placeholder name “ix.Mac.MarketingName” has appeared on several apps’ iTunes listings.



The listing appears on Panic’s new universal SSH client for iOS called Prompt [App Store] which appeared in the App Store this evening as well as many other Universal apps in the App Store. 

It’s clearly a glitch that will be corrected quickly, but it’s led some to speculate that it’s a placeholder for another unknown device.
