Apple doesn’t know how thin the Ipad is

Wafer thin

A MISTAKE on Apple's marketing pages has mistakenly credited the fourth generation Ipad as being thinner than it actually is.

The text on an Apple marketing page was spotted by a Reddit user and shared in a comment on that website.

It said that the fourth generation Ipad is .37mm thick, or thin, depending on how you look at it. If it was that thin though, you would have to struggle to see it.


That is wafer thin. You'd probably need glasses to see it and the Ipad could possibly blow away in the wind. You definitely wouldn't want to hold it too tight in case you accidentally twisted it and it shattered.

With pieces that thin it would be lost and you would forever be picking bits of Ipad out of the soles of your shoes.

Because we can't be sure that this isn't a hoax we've asked Apple to confirm its mistake. We've also checked Apple's website and seen the error for ourselves. This is probably good enough, even for us.

Now that we have told Apple about it we expect the text to be changed. Until then you can revel in a rare example of the cappuccino company making a mistake. µ
