Some of us may occasionally describe photos of Apple products as “gadget porn,” but that doesn’t mean that we expect iPhone-related links to lead us to actual porn sites.

Don’t worry though! Apple is doing its very best to seize control of many porn-filled iPhone-related domain names — including iPhone4S.com — in order to clean them up.

iphonecam4s.com
iphoneporn4s.com
iphonesex4s.com
iphonexxxforce.com
iphone4s.com
porn4iphones.com
