Apple's Attention to Detail

Michael Robert

Have you ever wondered how much Apple care about the small things? If you have... Let me tell you it is way more than you think and if you haven't... prepare to have your mind blown.

Apple always talk about how everything matters to them, even the smallest things. All you have to do is watch a Apple Keynote and see how much time they spend on things most people wouldn't even consider, like force touch, it's a great feature but we don't need to know all the details about how you do it.

However most of the time this has to do with the design of a product or the software. Today we discovered something so trivial but to Apple it matters.

The original iPhone 6 was launched on 9 September 2014 and went of sale on the 19 September 2014.  iOS 8 was released to the public on 17 September 2014 with the latest update, iOS 8.4 being released on 30 June 2015. The photo on the left is a screenshot of Apple's website on 19 September 2014 and the photo on the right in on 15 July 2015. Can you notice the difference?

So there are a couple of differences.... The music app has changed, some of the apps have been moved around, Game Centre has been removed. But the detail we are looking at this the date on the calendar. Apple is so particular about the small things that it even changes the date on the calendar to reflect the product release date or the last software update.

If you go look on Apple's website to an Mac computer you will notice the date on the calendar app as the 16 October 2014 the date Yosemite was released to the public. 

Have you ever wondered why every Apple product has the time at 9:41am?
