It's in = It's in fashion; it's popular It's very in = It's very popular The iPhone is very in! It's very now. You need to hear this spoken to understand it. It means: It used to be just in (just popular), but now it's VERY in (very popular). There is emphasis on the VERY, and a slight rising on the word "now".
