By Mike Krieger / Business Insider / September 19, 2018 11:19:24″This isn’t just a keyboard.
This is a keyboard with a touchscreen, and a lot of people say that’s a great thing,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said on a conference call with investors in September, ahead of the release of the company’s upcoming flagship tablet.
“It’s really good, it’s very powerful.”
Apple’s new tablet, the Kindle Paperwhite, was revealed to the world in June, and the company had hoped to have it available by October, but delays forced the launch to take place just months after its initial release.
The device was announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, a yearly event where Apple showcases new products and talks about new products.
Apple’s recent launch of the new tablet has been criticized by some users, who believe that the device’s layout, which is more vertical than horizontal, is a hindrance to productivity.
Many have suggested that the touchscreen is distracting users from typing, and some people have complained about how the keyboard can be hard to read.
But Apple’s Chief Product Officer Lisa Jackson said during a conference with investors that the company would make the changes to the new Paperwhite tablet, and that it was just one step in making the tablet more usable.
“We’re working on it,” Jackson said, according to Bloomberg.
“We’re still in the early days of development, but we’ve been working on a new design, and I can tell you we’re very close to it.”
Apple also announced a new version of its App Store, Apple Music, on September 18, and is expected to launch another app in the coming weeks.
The company said the update will allow users to use their iPhones and iPads to stream music to their Macs or iPads, and it will also add support for third-party apps like Spotify, Beats Music, and Tidal.
