That is wonderful news to know. This is how deisgn process must progress. Availability and delay in launch is secondary. First and foremost, product should be prefect and all parties involved must be statisfied.

Three salutes to Apple designers. Thres is lot to learn for deisgn team like Microsoft, Google and Amazon - not to give substandard product to end user.

Although it is not fair or nice to have a conclusion before read the whole article from the other hand when I read the first lines of the title my thought was "Apple is trying to create again a "fake" demand , a marketing tool to rise up the sales."
