Apple plans to launch new initiative to provide software updates for unopened iPhones

When customers purchase a new iPhone from an Apple retail store, the device may come with outdated software. For example, the first batch of iPhone 15 shipped from the factory with iOS 17 pre-installed, but when it was released, iOS 17.0.1 was already available.

They developed a proprietary device that places an iPhone on it, wirelessly turns it on, performs software updates, and then turns it off. All this without opening the packaging.

Apple plans to roll out the system in retail stores by the end of this year.

NLRB charges Company X with illegally firing employees who publicly questioned return-to-work plan

According to CNBC, the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) said in a complaint filed on Friday that Company X violated labor laws by firing an employee who criticized management's "return to work policy."

Musk bought the company then known as Twitter in October and threatened to fire employees who didn't return to the office.

The NLRB noted that Musk once said, "If you can show up to the office in person and don't show up, that's considered your resignation." This resulted in several employees expressing "concern and anger" over instructions to return to the office immediately.

Yao Yue subsequently posted on X and the company's internal collaboration platform Slack, encouraging other employees not to resign but to let the company fire them. She was fired after violating an unspecified company policy.

In its complaint, the NLRB accused X of preventing the company's employees from exercising their legal labor rights. Yao Yue claimed that the company fired her "in retaliation for her attempts to prevent her colleagues from resigning" so that they would have "a better legal basis" if they were fired or persuaded to quit.

TSMC founder Zhang Zhongmou: Semiconductors are no longer globalized, and competition among chip manufacturers will become more intense

He said that he is not too worried about this happening and that it is still possible for TSMC to overcome this challenge.
