So what if it was reported earlier by some else as a bug or vulnerability?"The researcher did not disclose the vulnerability to Apple prior to going public, saying at the time that he was "giving away" the exploit in hopes of shedding light on problems related to the tech giant's Bug Bounty Program."
My reading of this: he tried to report, but was not the first and therefore could not claim the bounty. Not every "researcher" is running their own YouTube channel. Most will be working for companies which do not allow their staff to run to the media to claim publicity.
Even if he was the first to discover, the problem for Rodriguez was that the moment he placed it on Youtube, he lost any IP rights. The video itself is copyrighted but the knowledge inside is now made public. Everyone can use it without needing to credit and this includes Apple.

Even if the article means to say 2800 remain that’s still a ton of overhead, for what??

This will have a positive impact on battery life: a 5000 nits display continuously on will take less than 10 times the energy of a 500 nits display continuously on. So if this factor is 2x, then a 5000 nits image displayed at 10% on duration will take on 20% of the energy of a 500 nits image displayed at 100% of the duration.
I had an "Apple Newton Original", first generation, given to us by Apple Australia complete with the full software development kit. For me the achilles heel was the software development kit. This software development environment was not only complex but also very expensive. It was so different than anything else and the learning curve was steep. Data was stored in "soups" and there was other weird stuff. It was just too big a step. At the same time, there was little training material, no reference code and very little other support (keep in mind, the internet was only available at select universities and from home through a 9600 baud dial-up-modem with document and code downloads still a concept - support went through eWorld and that was only more than a year after the Newton came out). We tried so develop some applications, but it took much more time than we had available and had to drop it because we just did not have the time to figure out how to do something useful with it. It was also way before wifi came along, because that together with TCP/UDF packets would have made the device easy to connect/transfer data with a desktop and would have been the difference between a useable device and a brick. Today, with Xcode everyone can put apps together while with the Newton you needed both a degree in computer science and a degree in philosophy at the same time.
At that time a lot of weird stuff was happening with Apple Development Tools and concept Operating Systems and the most disastrous was their collaboration with IBM on Pink and Taligent. That was such an incredible mess. If Jobs had not come back and killed all this chaos, the Apple would not have made it till 2000.
I have an iPad Air 4 and see no reason to upgrade. The only big deal is that colours are nicer. My iPad is WiFi only, the front camera is hardly used and I don't experience any real world issues with the A14 Bionic.
If I needed a new iPad, this one in blue would be the one to get, but for me, upgrading from an iPad Air 4 to 5 makes no sense.
