Oops! Four of the most notable miss Apple 117




Ugly situation with iOS 8.0.1 , you had to pay, and then remove because of the “bugs” tarnished the reputation of Apple, was struck by the fans and the media forced to recall the most striking failures of the company.

So, the main failure of Apple edition CNet, which published a list of missteps, calls the card. Monstrous application prompts the user to jump from bridges and contributed to the popularity of fruitless wanderings, was presented in 2012, and drew criticism from users. Some organizations do not recommend use Apple Maps. Do not react to it was impossible: Tim Cook personally apologized fired Scott Forstalla who worked on software, and even advised people to return temporarily to the development of competition.

Next on the list of failures means “antennageyt” – “Fail” of the Steve Jobs. The meaning of the failure was that the iPhone 4 did not catch the network if it is kept in a certain way – hand “overlaps” antenna. Buyers resented … But Apple, recognizing the problem in general terms, only recommended to keep the smartphone differently or buy a 29-dollar “bumper”, which did not give a hand to influence significant component. This society is not enough, and later, as a result of considerable pressure, Cupertino had yet to allow owners to replace the ill-fated gadget product or return the money for it. “We are not perfect, and our phones are not perfect. But we want to make all our users happy “- then said Jobs. It should be noted that “antennageyt”, though caused a sensation and led to a lawsuit against Apple, the popularity of the iPhone 4 almost say – the device was bought up like hotcakes.

In third place on the list is the failure of MobileMe, a service that was supposed to be a versatile tool that links all user data with any of its devices. However, the project, launched in 2008, was a failure: users can not access their data and have not been able to issue a paid subscription. There were some other “bugs.” So, Apple acknowledged that some users have irretrievably lost 10% of their letters. On the reaction of the company to disrupt the launch of new applications has learned from leaked corporate correspondence, in which Steve Jobs admitted that should not have to start work at the same time a new service with the launch of the iPhone 3G and other major products. Since the launch of the service was disrupted, the product is pointless probarahtalsya until 2012, and then gone forever. Now for the data binding Cupertino offers fans the service iCloud.

By the way, it connects CNet another major failure of Apple – a massive leak of photos of celebrities before the release of the new iPhone 6. Despite the fact that the direct fault of the developers in the iCloud data theft imprudent and suffering love to own nakedness stars no, this is the service for data storage turned out to be compromised. In response to a clear provocation Apple strengthened product safety by introducing more complex system of verification … This happened in September of 2014. Month, itself called the media “failure”: it was then webcast of the presentation Apple dazzled with different eccentricities, and users were unhappy with the fact that they were presented with an album of U2, and demanded the removal of a bonus … The September issue of iOS 8.0.1, which gave rise to an article in the side not remain as mass hysteria about bendability new smartphones.

So, if we consider the current September as one large The soft, “oops!”, It turns out that Apple’s failure was not so much. Even if our readers will remember something else, the total number of failures is likely to be, not a two-digit. This thirty-something-odd years!
