A few years back I was commissioned to produce a number of animated sales presentations for a client which they could run on their iPad when out on the road. We worked on various versions over the years and they always went down well with prospective customers.
Recently the company got rebranded and had a few staff changes. Working with a new client, I was instructed to rebuild the presentation incorporating the new branding along with a few other changes. To ensure everything went smoothly I requested the iPad model and iOS version, as it had been a few years since the last presentation.
Me: Can I have the iPad model and iOS version please? you can find these within the iPad settings.
I gave them detailed instructions on how to find this, just in case.
Weeks past and the deadline was getting closer.
Me: Have you got the information I asked for, please? I just need to be sure everything I’m building at the moment will be compatible.
Still nothing. The presentation was so complex (and huge) that I had to forge on with things despite the lack of info to stand any chance of getting it finished in time.
A few days before the deadline:
Me: Sorry to pester but I really need that information I requested a few weeks back, please.
Client: Sorry, here it is. iOS version 12.
Me: Great! And the model?
Client: An HP Pavilion 15.
