Bitter Apple: A History Of Apple's Apologies

Being the biggest tech company in the world means always having to say you're sorry.

This week, Apple apologized to Chinese consumers after criticism around the company's less-than-stellar warranty and repair policies frustrated the country's iPhone and iPad owners. China's media and foreign ministry accepted Apple's apology, a sure relief to Apple with China being the company's fastest-growing and second-biggest market.

But the Chinese snafu joins a long line of Apple apologies. Some were passive-agressive, like Apple's apology for iPhone 4 preorder problems, supposedly because the phone was too desired. Others are more serious, like the apology Apple had to make for letting the game "Baby Shaker" into the App Store.
