My comment is in general terms. I understand the rationale for companies to want to use automation, however, it’s dangerous to completely remove humans out of the equation. At some point, there’s going to be a rebellion and millions of dollars of automation equipment is likely to be destroyed by the people it replaced.

So with more automation and less humans, we can expect the price of Apple devices to drop, right???
