Apple's trade-in plan is complained: the official often does not receive old equipment

A 9to5Mac editor said that after mailing an iPhone 13 Pro Max to Apple for a trade-in, he was notified by Apple that there was nothing in it.

And this seems to have become a common problem, reflecting a big problem in the trade-in program: Apple relies heavily on third parties for shipping, receiving, and storage, resulting in devices that are likely to be stolen from courier packages.

9to5Mac suggested that Apple could best set up a "trade-in" mode to enable the "Find My" function on the iPhone during the delivery process, so that the user and Apple can track the location of the phone during the delivery process.

New energy vehicles can be updated "after purchase", not just systems and software

Pushing system and software updates for cars through OTA software services, there are already many new energy vehicles that can be implemented.

Anthony Lo, Ford's chief design officer, further pointed out that this "post-purchase update" model can even achieve "upgrades" in the physical sense, bringing more personalized services to consumers and extending the life of the vehicle.

For example, the owner can replace the driver's seat that doesn't fit the lines of his back, or give the old interior a trendy color. According to Anthony Lo, this strategy is "like renovating your old house."

In fact, these services are currently technically feasible and could also lead to more potential revenue streams for car companies. However, this requires a well-developed after-sales service system, which is difficult for an automaker to do, especially during the warranty period.

In the future, Anthony Lo also hopes that all parts of the vehicle can be designed to be updated and replaceable, "the vehicle will become smarter like a smartphone."
