Mr. Forstole said about product image time "At Apple's announcement, a new product will be announced about 40 minutes after the start of the presentation. The announcement will start around 9 o'clock, so the product will be released around 9:40 As the calculation is the first time the image of the product is released at that time, it is necessary to set the time in the image to 9:40, provided that the product is actually released at 9:40 Because there is not, we predict the time as close as possible to it and set the clock display.

Currently all product images are "9: 41", which was originally adapted to Mr. Jobs' presentation, was changed when the 1st generation iPad was released in 2010, and it is still used as it is now That's why.
