Misleading Advertising by Apple

Apple has a service called Apple News Plus. Find their web page on this here:

Note that the very first image is of an iPad. Note that the fourth feature listed is this:

“Listen to the week’s best articles with Apple News+ audio stories.”

In reality — which Apple fails to point out — is that the audio feature is NOT available on iPads, even though the page construction clearly leads the viewer to think audio would be available on the iPad.

Aside from this slimy and misleading advertising tactic, why isn’t it available? It should be. Many people get iPads because of vision problems and being able to listen would be an asset.
