Maybe it's for the same reason so many digital clocks come with a fake display sticker that reads 12:08. Perhaps it just looks good to whatever art director was in charge of the photo shoot.

it's supposedly because Steve announced the first iPhone at 9:42 at MacWorld.
Yeah. There was some discrepancy over the issue of exactly when he was supposed to announce it. I think one of the first iPhone ads had 9:41 displayed, because that was when he was "supposed" to announce it.

I don't think this is that obsessive. Apple tend to pay attention to these details. The old iCal icon defaulted to 17 July because that was its launch date, for example.
