Sure. None of us know what’s going on inside Apple, all we can do is guess.
A conceivable guess as to why Apple released this warning after 5 years of this issue being present, just days before they released an ad of a new product on some handle bars, is that they were concerned about the ad inspiring customers to think about using the new product on motorcycle handle bars (albeit the ad handle bars are of a scooter). A customer taking that perception could say “well your action ad says I can do this just fine”, thus the official warning. Just a possible perspective on why they announced it now, 5 years after the issue becoming present. Could also be that they just wanted to warn people independent of that. Who knows, who cares.
@Michael748 wondered if there was some motive making the announcement now, perhaps a new product. @rockit99 called him dull when actually it’s entirely possible that he’s right, and that’s what I was speaking to.
