Periodically, the player will receive emails from various characters, or even companies promoting new items in stores. For some personal emails, the player can choose to 'reply' to the sender, and a scripted message from the protagonist will be sent, advancing the conversation. Emails from retailers sometimes come with a link that can be opened in the browser.
The text messaging function of the phone allows the player to receive texts from various characters. Viewing a text usually prompts the player to call the sender, often to advance a part of the story or to trigger a mission.
Shows the mission objectives (when playing on a mission);
Shows a list of the last GTA Online missions invites for quick access, even if the player is in the story mode (only when connected to the internet).
Allows the player to save the game when not in a safehouse. Quick saving is not available during missions.

GTA IV (3G)
- Juliette Lewis mentions that she owns one on her talk show.
GTA V (9iX)
- Michael De Santa owns one.
- Lamar Davis (In Chop, before it was thrown away by Franklin. He bought another one, as it was seen in Deep Inside.)
- GTA Online Protagonist owns one.
- Franklin might own one as you can find one in his bedroom in the Vinewood Hills safehouse that plays music. Although it could be a MP3 player with a similar design to the iFruit phone, or possibly even a parody of the iPod Touch.
- The GTA Online Protagonist owns several iFruits, one as their primary phone and a few others in their apartment as music players. Though like mentioned above, the apartment iFruits can be iPod Touches rather than phones.
Grand Theft Auto IV
- The fruit bowl-shaped logo of the phone clearly resembles a penis.
- In GTA V, there is a news article from Daily Globe after the mission Marriage Counseling that announces a new model of iFruit to be released in 3 months, however there is already a man named Sean Douglas waiting for the phone outside of an iFruit store in Downtown Algonquin, while he is defecating in plastic bags, eating cans of tuna and being spat on by strangers. This is clearly a mockery towards iPhone fans that wait months in queues outside of Apple stores before a new model is released.
- In GTA Online, the three bars in the top left of the screen shows the quality of your connection to the session you're in.
- In The Loneliest Robot in Great Britain, the box for the new Phil model has the iFruit logo on it.
- A second news article from Daily Globe after the mission Eye In The Sky reports that Sean Douglas is still waiting in line for the iFruit, despite he's passing by the early stages of leprosy.
- A third and final news article from Daily Globe, this time after the mission Caida Libre, reveals that Sean Douglas ended up dying from leprosy, whilst waiting for the phone. The article pays a tribute to Sean, saying that everybody has a little of Sean Douglas within himself.
- The phone's default ringtone bears close similarities to the iPhone 4S's default ringtone, named "Marimba".
- The iFruit's ads cite the real iPhone's criticisms which include slow design change, uninnovative software, amongst others.
- In the enhanced edition of the game, the phone resembles a cross between the iPhone 5C and the Nokia Lumia 430 with a similar color and soft button design.
