Apple found itself in yet another controversy with the launch of its iPhone 15 Pro series as the numerous overheating reports of overheating devices forced Apple to tackle the issue with its iOS 17.0.3 update. Apple officially acknowledged the overheating issue but this situation may have prompted Apple to develop its own in-house solution to prevent similar problems in the future.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is reporting that Apple has developed a proprietary “pad-like device” that can wirelessly update factory-sealed iPhones right inside the store before they are sold to customers. Based on the details, the machine will be able to wirelessly turn on the iPhone, update its software to the latest iOS version available and then power it back down. Apple is planning to roll out its new software-updating machines to stores before the end of the year.
