Yesterday it was Tim Cook’s turn on WSJ.D talking about Apple Pay, Apple Watch and the iPod Classic, today it’s Greg Joswiak’s turn in an interview for Walt Mossberg’s ReCode .
He has also had time to talk about the Apple Watch and Apple Pay, but what he brings us today is the first public apology from an Apple executive for the iOS 8.0.1 update , which as you well know caused the iPhone 6 and 6 plus to become a brick with no coverage on the mobile network and no Touch ID.
Greg openly claims that the error in iOS 8.0.1 was not due to a bug in the Software itself, but a bug in the way the iOS 8 update was distributed . Greg stated in Walt’s interview that Apple apologizes for the inconvenience this update caused. But we should perhaps stay with the positive side, that in a little more than an hour the update was cancelled, could be reversed and the next day an update was released that did not present this problem.
Apple’s Vice President of iPhone Marketing also left us a few words about Apple’s future Wearable. When asked by Walt if the Apple Watch would cost several thousand dollars, Greg stated that there will be such a wide range of prices that all Apple users interested in getting an Apple Watch will find the model that best suits their needs and pocketbook .
