Apple’s Presto machine updates sealed and boxed iPhone items wirelessly inside U.S. Apple Shops

The “Presto” system is fairly cool; it appears like science fiction. Sealed bins of iPhones are positioned in rows of three inside what seems like a locker inside an Apple Retailer within the U.S. Six iPhone bins match within the two rows belonging to every “Presto” machine and it solely takes 20 seconds for every field to be positioned in its correct place “on a rail.”Β 

Over the subsequent 15 to half-hour, every iPhone within the locker is turned on wirelessly partially by means of using the MagSafe wi-fi charging system. As soon as a unit is powered up, it’s up to date with the newest model of iOS and is then shut off. All of that is accomplished with out having to unseal the field, manually activate the cellphone and replace it, and seal it again up.

In response to iGeneration (by way of 9to5Mac), the entire “Presto” system runs on a Mac mini. When an Apple Retailer technician scans an iPhone field, it provides that exact unit to a listing of units that must be up to date. The machine additionally tells Apple Retailer workers which items must be run by means of the system and it checks gross sales data for every day to find out which items must be put by means of the method for the subsequent day.

The report from iGeneration notes that even when an Apple Retailer workers member hasn’t been educated on the machine, they’ll have an element within the strategy of wirelessly updating the sealed iPhones. If an Apple Retailer worker is strolling by the machine and sees that the standing gentle is now inexperienced (from the unique white), he/she is aware of that the cellphone in that field has been up to date and might be faraway from the “Presto” machine. As soon as faraway from the machine, the field is added to the shop’s inventory of boxed and sealed iPhone items which were up to date and are able to be bought.

When a selected SKU is bought (every SKU pertains to a particular mannequin, shade, and storage capability), “Presto” reminds the Apple Retailer to replace the identical SKU. That is sensible because it implies that regardless of which iPhone mannequin an Apple Retailer buyer needs to purchase, one will probably be accessible and up to date within the shade and storage capability that the customer needs. When new stock is obtained by an Apple Retailer, the machine tells the workers which fashions must be up to date. When a brand new iOS replace is dropped, the machine tells the crew that each one telephones in inventory must be up to date by the “Presto” machine.
