The comment chain under an answer on this question brought up an interesting question. Have there been any documented typos or production mistakes on genuine Apple products released into the wild?

    While the question is admittedly intriguing, I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it doesn't follow the guidelines here and here.

  • I agree with @IconDaemon. Intriguing, but not within the scope of the Help file. Dec 1, 2019 at 3:42
  • Of course, typos like this always happen. I once saw a typo in the Hungarian translation of macOS 10.7 Lion. (System Preferences/Desktop & Screen Saver/Screen Saver: the Preview option was translated as "Tesztelelés" instead of "Tesztelés"). Of course, a typo like this on a physical product would be a bigger disaster, since it's not that easy to get rid of it. Dec 1, 2019 at 4:22
  • @TamásSengel I am specifically asking about hardware products and not software.

    I disagree that it's off-topic and don't see what guidelines it violates. This is practical (the knowledge can help weigh the importantance of typos when guessing if a product is fake), easily answerable without opinion (by providing examples of typos), reasonably scoped (a typo example is quite narrow), and doesn't lead to discussion more than any other factual answer.
