Chinese woman ordering iPhone 12 Pro Max on Apple’s official website, and got yogurt with apple flavor
Stories about when a user ordered some of the Apple smartphones, and instead received a certain item that was certainly not a smartphone (like a stone of suitable weight) are not uncommon. But this story stands out from a number of similar ones by the fact that this time the order was made not through third-party intermediaries or a suspicious store, but through the most official Apple store. At least that’s what the failed smartphone owner says.
The Chinese woman uploaded a video on Weibo showing the unboxing of her new iPhone 12 Pro Max with 256GB of flash memory for $ 1,563, but instead of a smartphone, the box turned out to be yogurt. What is typical – with apple flavor. So no formalities have been met: there is an apple image on the package.
Liu (that’s the girl’s name), of course, got upset and went to the police. During the proceedings, it turned out that the woman did not receive the parcel in her hands: the courier left a box with an alleged smartphone in the parcel machine not far from Liu’s house. Both the local Apple office and the Express Mail Service (EMS) were involved in the investigation. The police still qualify the case as a theft, but at what stage it was committed (that is, when the real smartphone was replaced with yogurt) is still to be found out.
