iPhone X time error in design guide made fun of by netizens
Netizens recently discovered an oversight by Apple, where photo details on the iPhone X design guide reflected inconsistencies.
In the company’s developer site, a photo of the iPhone X showcased some of its features, namely the clock on the lock screen.
As reported by The Next Web, Reddit users noticed the lock screen clock showed “1:34” while the upper left corner showed “9:41.”
The iPhone X reveal presentation showed the upper left corner was supposed to be clear.
The web page has since been updated with the time “9:41” being displayed. This specific time holds significance because it often indicates when an iPhone will be revealed during a presentation.
However, this did not stop Reddit users from having a little bit of sarcastic fun. A thread called the mistake “inexcusable” and many of the comments said it spelled the doom of Apple.
One of the commenters just gave up on the company while another lamented a person getting fired.
One thought the error so severe that it warrants a shift to Android.
A more serious comment pointed out the company’s alleged poor attention to quality in the past few years, something that Apple might want to address. Alfred Bayle/JB
