Tim Cook says iPad mini is in a different league than 7-inch tablets

In 2010, Steve Jobs minced no words as he expressed his distaste for 7-inch tablets, stating that the size is useless unless users sand their fingers down to a quarter of their size.

It's not that Cook apologized for the situation - the situation being that Apple Maps (without Google) isn't as perfect as they wanted it to be - it's that inside this apology, he encouraged users to use other products while they remain patient for Apple Maps to improve. Tim Cook took a situation where Apple could easily have said "just chill out" to the public and said instead, in so many words, "we're confident enough in our own product that we'll literally tell you to use other solutions while we prove to you that you'll want to return to us when the time is right" - this is rare in the tech industry.
