Apple has released the first beta version of iOS 15.4. The update has a lot of new features. However, some of them remained hidden. The authors of 9to5mac found a mention of some “Trade-In Tool” in the code of the test assembly.
According to available data, with these tools, users will be able to assess the condition of their iPhone. To do this, you just need to take a photo of your smartphone. Next, the application will find scratches, dents and other cosmetic damage that are on the device body.
After the scan is completed, the data will be sent to Apple, and the company will tell you exactly how much the user can get for their device when they turn it in at Trade-In. The presence of such tools will greatly speed up the process of assessing the condition of a mobile device.
There’s also a chance that, with the launch of the self-repair program approaching, new tools will also be used to assess build quality or look for non-genuine parts.
The Trade-In Tool is currently under development. Therefore, while the function cannot be found in iOS 15.4 beta 1. It is possible that the tools will appear in one of the following test builds.
