While the pandemic of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect multiple markets and countries around the world, Apple continues to adjust as best it can right now.
In this sense, the Crab is now instructing users to obtain information about the pandemic from official sources – in the case of Brazil, the Ministry of Health. In addition, the company removed the purchase limit of devices through the Apple Online Store, which had been implemented last week.
Siri and COVID-19
As we said, Siri is now helping users find correct information about the pandemic. The initiative follows the company’s philosophy of disclosing apps about the virus only from official sources.
In the United States, on the other hand, the virtual assistant is helping people to detect symptoms of the disease with the help of information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Public Health Service (a division of the Department of Health and Human Services).
Limit purchases on the Apple Online Store
Last week, Apple implemented an online shopping limit to avoid a shortage of some products during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, however, considering that the production of gadgets in China is returning to normal, the company decided remove this restriction in multiple regions.
It had put in place some limits, like five units of MacBook Air and Mac mini per consumer, two units of iPad Pro (of each size), two of iPhones (varying between each model), etc.
Some limits still need to be removed in China – there, although there are no restrictions on purchases of iPhones, iPad Pro and Mac mini, there is still a limit of five units of the MacBook Air per order.
