Apple employees get extra time off after a September "for the books"

Apple employees get extra time off after a September "for the books"
Apple employees received a memo from their leader today. Apple CEO Tim Cook applauded the troops, and announced that they will receive extra time-off during the November Thanksgiving holiday. The executive wrote that he was pleased with the launch of the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8 and Apple Pay. In addition, Apple unveiled the Apple Watch, which will hit the market possibly as soon as February.

In his letter, Cook said that Apple will be closed on November 24th, 25th and 26th although employees will be getting paid for the three days. Those Apple employees who can't take those three days off during the holiday shopping season, like those toiling for Apple Stores or Apple Care, will get their three days off at a later date.

While on the face of things Apple did enjoy a good month, there have been some serious problems. We've seen pictures of Apple iPhone 6 Plus models that have bent in owner's pockets. Other companies have picked up on this with BlackBerry CEO John Chen stating that the newly launched BlackBerry Passportwon't easily bend.  In addition, some owners of the two new iPhone models have had problems with their handsets following the installation of iOS 8.0.1. But these incidents haven't prevented Apple from laughing all the way to the bank.

The full letter from Tim Cook to Apple employees follows.
