It would have been a massive cluster if they shipped 5 Million defective earPods (See Samsung Galaxy 7). I think they did it right.
and to complete my pedantism... Their vision wasn't delayed, their delivery was delayed.
Their Biggest foul-up in 2016 was done in 2014, when they 'finally' released a 5.5" 6+. Which caused a FY 2015 Spike in sales, making FY 2016 smaller in comparison, but if you look YoY, sales are back in line with 2010-14 sales growth. One could argue they release just a 6+ in 2014 (and an SE to keep the 4" crowd happy), and then in 2015, release the 6s [new model] and 6s+ in 2015, and they would not have had the dip in FY 2016.
