Do you purchase in-person because you need to ask staff members questions constantly? Apple is confident that it can replicate part of that experience at home. Apple is introducing a "Shop with a Specialist over Video" function that allows iPhone users in the US to have a one-way video conversation with a store representative. You may look at financing options, inquire about moving from Android, and get advise on which model to purchase.
Every day between 10 AM and 10 PM Eastern, you can make a video call. According to the business, the capability is available on any device that can visit the Apple website. The Expert cannot see you, therefore you can only converse through voice.
If you're hoping for hands-on experience, this won't be helpful, and you probably won't obtain the answers you'd get in a thorough review. If you need assistance shopping for a Mac or other Apple items, you're also out of luck. Nonetheless, if you'd prefer not to browse product pages in search of answers, this could be helpful. It's a good idea to have a backup plan in case something goes wrong, but it's not a must.
The accession happens to be at a crucial time for Apple. It suffered in the fall, along with other hardware producers, as a difficult economy and supply shortages harmed sales. Although an online buying tool is unlikely to have a significant impact on increasing those sales, it may aid clients who would otherwise be reluctant to purchase an iPhone without first seeing it.
