Apple Stores will be able to update iPhones while they’re boxed up.

It’s annoying when you have to update your new smartphone right after you buy it, right?

Mark Gurman wrote in his Power On newsletter for Bloomberg today that Apple Stores will start getting a “proprietary pad-like device” this year that, when employees put a box of unopened iPhones on it, will prompt the phones to turn on, update themselves, then turn off.

Neat!
