Apple's iPhone 11 event video contains a secret message for 'hard core fans'


Tuesday’s iPhone 11 event was almost 2 hours long. The entire press conference can be viewed on Apple’s YouTube channel but it’s fair to say most people are more interested in watching a short recap. Because of this, Apple has created a 2-minute clip that summarizes the event perfectly but, rather unexpectedly, it also includes a secret message for the ‘hard core fans.’

The video itself covers everything from the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro to the Apple Watch Series 5, Apple TV+, and all-new iPad. However, if you stop the clip right after the narrator says ‘best-selling PC’ at the 1:23 mark you’ll spot a quick message that appears for just six frames. 

The surprise reads: "Error 09102019. This is just a thought. But it might be nice to have some sort of easter egg message in here for the hard core Apple fans that will stop the video." It then continues with a bunch of numbers that can be identified as binary. These translate as:

Made it appear like the windows BSOD. Clever. But the message itself could have been better... doesn't seem like too much thought was put into it

You bought its product to use it as You need. Why would anyone become a "hard core" fans? You don't get paid, for being fans, do you?
