They will include something about Product (Red) in the discussion. And that's likely all
You wouldn't get a second chance if Apple had any other choice. If they don't then there are likely penalties built into the contract.
Makes sense from a security point of view. A couple of weeks at sea, heck even one week, is asking for someone to try something
Try again. Apple will likely ship that many phones to the US for launch weekend alone. Plus that again in ipads, then there's the possible wearable, Apple TV box, new cinema displays, iMacs etc.And they are unlikely to only launch in the US for either idevice or the wearable because that is asking for additional reseller crap.And these are likely air shipments. Not ship. So yes Apple could pull off a near monopoly of FedEx, DHL etc for the first couple of weeks of launch...
Except that they would never say something like that. It's a douchebag comment and it gives attention to folks that don't deserve it.  They would announce what they want to announce and no comment any other questions like "hey what about the Apple Watch?"
 Apple would never pay someone for not doing the job. it's not their style. UNLESS the failure is on them.  You can bet that their deal is that on X to Y dates they need this shipping and they will get it. Period. Possibly even with conditions that no one else's stuff can be on those boats, in those planes etc. 
This is classic Apple. When they set up supplies and shipping systems they do it with strict contracts that their stuff will be on time. If they say they want 20 million units of X on this date and you say 'no problem' it had better be no problem or you will not get a second chance. This is what Tim Cook was responsible for under Steve Jobs and Tim did it very very well. There are countless stories of other companies allegedly having issues getting this or that part cause...
then they would only publish things like 4 times a year
I'm questioning this and the logic skills of the writer for one reason and one only. the only folks at Apple that are likely to know anything about this device and its battery are those involved in the design etc. That can't be that big of a group. And they are all most certainly under an NDA. Why the heck would any of them risk a cush job and being blacklisted if it gets out what they did by speaking to another. that detail right there should make one highly suspect...
Funny you mention Microsoft. Remember the X box ring of death. I gave up after getting mine replaced with two more units that also failed. Apparently they did no testing of any kind at any point to figure out why it was happening and stop it.  Compare this to Apple which wasn't likely legally required to do anything about the sleep wake or battery issues on the iPhone 5 in many countries (since the issues didn't start turning up until the phones were several months old for...
