That'll be because a company's marketing department works hard to get
its pages at the top of Google's search results.  It remains that
"iterable" is the standard form in python's extensive documentation and
is the form I am used to.

English evolves according to the way it's mostly used, regardless of
anyone's attempts to impose rules.  Feel free to resist (that, also, is
part of the evolutionary process), but remember that you may be trying
to stop the tide.
