iPhone SE 2022 Gets New ‘Authenticate On Device’ Feature Coming to iPhone 14

Published

on

The iPhone SE 2022, Apple’s first budget phone with 5G connectivity, has received a new “on-device authentication” feature that will eliminate the middleman and speed up the buying process, Bloomberg claims.

When a person buys an iPhone in the US from an Apple retail store or through the company’s website, they are asked for your cell phone number as well as the last four digits of their social security number. This helps carriers to conduct a credit check and confirm the transaction. The downside is that this increases the time of the purchase process and also results in poor customer experience in scenarios where the activation servers are overloaded.

With the release of the iPhone SE 2022, the situation has changed. Customers who select AT&T or T-Mobile as their carriers are not prompted to enter the above details or select a data plan at the time of purchase. Instead, they can simply take their new phone home and enter the details and connect to the carrier after turning on the device.

Apple’s website has already moved to the new process, and stores will begin following it from March 29. This feature will also be rolled out to Verizon users. Apple will also allow users to purchase the iPhone SE 3 at stores with monthly Apple Card installments without connecting the device to a carrier.

While this process is currently only for the iPhone SE 2022, there are speculations that it will also be used for the iPhone 14 series, which will presumably be announced in September.

This is part of Apple’s push to reduce reliance on carriers. Apple and other phone makers have already started selling phones with eSIMs, making it easier for consumers to connect to their preferred carrier and switch to another carrier if they want to. There are also rumors that Apple may ditch the SIM tray entirely in the future in favor of an eSIM.

The Wall Street Journal Apple wants more iPhone and MacBook

The Wall Street Journal, citing well-informed anonymous sources, reported that Apple wants to increase the production of components for its devices – iPhone and MacBook – outside of China. The company expressed this desire to a number of its contractors.

The Wall Street Journal: Apple wants more iPhone and MacBook components made outside of China

Sources of The Wall Street Journal say that India and Vietnam are mentioned among the most likely applicants for the expansion of production. The publication notes that Apple’s desire to reduce the production of components in China is caused by strict anti-virus measures, which are introduced by the PRC authorities from time to time, sometimes completely closing entire cities.

Currently, more than 90% of components for the same iPhone, iPad and MacBook are made in China. At the same time, according to analysts cited by The Wall Street Journal, “such a high degree of dependence on one particular country carries potential risks due to the authoritarianism of the communist government in Beijing and its difficult relationship with the United States“.

In April, it became known that about half of Apple’s top 200 suppliers have manufacturing facilities in areas ordered by Chinese authorities to be placed under strict quarantine following a new outbreak of COVID-19. Apple CFO Luca Maestri later said the company could lose between $4 billion and $8 billion in the second quarter due to supply chain disruptions.
