The newspaper, which is aimed at “readers and lapsed readers” of all ages and commuters with limited time, was launched on 26 October 2010 by Independent Print.
In February 2016 it was announced that as part of the restructuring of Independent Print, The Independent and Independent on Sunday would become digital titles with The i Paper acquired by Johnston Press. The first edition published by Johnston was on 11 April 2016.
While no longer owned by ESI Media, Johnston Press continue to publish the paper from the Independent’s offices in Derry Street, London and continue to use copy from The Independent and London Evening Standard in addition to hiring new staff for the newspaper. An ‘i’ branded website has also launched.
‘i’ along with Johnston Press’s portfolio of newspapers were acquired by JPI Media in November 2018 after the company went into administration.
