  • Origin of Apple's 'A ?' QuickType bug a mystery, but notoriety grows with spread of memes,...

    The fact that this minor issue is getting this level of attention just points to the lack of an "Antenna-gate" issue with the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.
    The typical media storyline for iPhone is:

    Media iPhone Launch Calendar:
    T-minus 1 Year :
    "Projected new iPhone features stories"
    T-minus 9 months : "Production issues"
    T-minus 6 months : "Detailed drawing and mockups of new iPhone"
    T-minus 3 months : "Pricing woes, why Steve Jobs would hate this, detailed options (colors, configuration) and competitive threats"
    T-minus 1 month : "Samsung and other Android new flagships comparisons with unreleased iPhone: features, pricing and performance, etc."
    iPhone introduction & launch : "Exceptionally Low or Exceptionally High demand stories." Often based outdated metrics like lines at Apple stores.
    T-plus 1 month : "Antenna-gate based stories"

    Filler stories at anytime in the year: Why Apple has peaked, Death of Apple, Apple is not innovating, etc.

Some of the tech pundits are already listing it as the most exciting. Here's a report from Marques Brownlee from the 2018 iPhone launch event:
