Apple, apparently by mistake, sent smartphones totaling $96K to fulfill an order worth $3,600, a blunder that could potentially lead to someone losing their job. However, the iPhones have now made their way back to the manufacturer.
A TikTok user, @legends_gio, documented the return of the iPhone 15 Pro Max units to an Apple store. Following the receipt of the incorrect shipment, the user went out of town for a few days. Upon his return, Apple had reached out via email, suggesting that he keep the four iPhones from his order for free and return the excess. This is precisely what the TikTok user did.Returning the extra iPhones is a no-brainer, as it aligns with the principle of doing the right thing. When something doesn’t belong to you, the common practice is to give it back. This ethical stance sparked a huge discussion in the comment section under the post on TikTok around the incident of the mistakenly shipped iPhones.The iPhone 15 Pro Max with 1TB storage is the priciest model in the iPhone 15 series. Doing the right thing, in this case, resulted in the TikTok user keeping not only one for free but all four. Initially, he had ordered a single unit with 1TB storage for himself and three with 256GB storage for his work team. Now, they all enjoy the 1TB iPhone 15 Pro Max, a rewarding outcome for doing what’s right.
