Apple found itself in yet another controversy with the launch of its iPhone 15 Pro series as the numerous reports of overheating devices forced Apple to tackle the issue with its iOS 17.0.3 update.

Apple developed new in-store device for wireless software updates

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.
