Apple Inc. seems to be on the edge of the news as always. In a ‘goons’ war effect, as it is said, there was a theft of the iPhone X worth $37,0000. Three “husky” men wearing hoodies broke into a UPS truck parked outside an Apple Store in San Francisco and stole over 300 iPhone X devices.
The theft took place between 11:15 am and 11:30 am on Wednesday morning. It is reported that the UPS truck driver had locked the vehicle after parking outside the Stonestown Galleria mall, and went to a nearby Macy’s to make another delivery. This was the time the thieves broke down the van and grabbed off all 313 of the $999+ devices in a white Dodge van.
The SFPD Captain Rick Yick said, “Given the dollar value in the incident itself it appears it was planned.”
The investigation is said to be in process by UPS and Apple by working with police on the investigation. The IMEI serial number in each of the phone is catalogued along with a description.
Amidst all these chaos, CNET reports that customers who planned to pick up their iPhone X at the Stonestown Apple store would still get their device on time.
The sales expected from the latest models is $84 billion by the company. The theft’s effect however would not be much, unless the company itself goes ahead with a ‘say’ on this.
Interestingly, those who have missed on the pre-order of iPhone X have resorted to the eBay scalpers as a way to own the device. It seems like the auction site has the prices averaging for $1500, with the highest listing coming in at $60,000.
Still, it has been noticed that the majority of reviews of iPhone X have been quite positive, which means there would not be any kind of fluctuations on the public view about the new model product.
Again, Apple claims, the walk-in customers will have a limited quantity as a choice.
