Hi!

Why do we use platinum for the iodide solid because i thought we if we were dealing with solids there would be no use for an inert electrode?

you use an inert conductor as the electrode when dealing with half reactions that have no conducting solids.
because I2(s) is not a conductor, you use platinum as the electrode
