Five workers at an Amazon warehouse in Madrid have been convicted of stealing iPhones – iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro smartphones. They decided to get additional income by bypassing the system in the simplest way – by sending some other items instead of smartphones.
Amazon employees stole hundreds of iPhones worth 500,000 euros
In connection with the discovered discrepancies in the mass of boxes with smartphones, Amazon opened an internal investigation. Surveillance cameras were installed at the warehouse, with the help of which it was possible to find careless employees. During a search, they found ten stolen devices.
One of the employees came to the police on his own, and another was arrested at work. The rest were detained outside of working hours. They are now awaiting a court verdict. It is noted that the sales were not carried out by Amazon employees themselves, who, by the way, have already been fired, but by their accomplice.
How many smartphones were stolen has not yet been specified. The damage is estimated at 500,000 euros. Considering that in Spain an iPhone 12 with 64 GB of internal memory costs 910 euros, and the recommended price for the iPhone 12 Pro for the 512 GB storage variant is 1510 euros, from 330 to 550 devices were stolen.

DxOMark: iPhone 12 Pro Max has become Apple’s best camera phone
Two days ago, DxOMark specialists published a detailed test report of the main camera of the iPhone 12 Pro; the smartphone took fourth place in the ranking, gaining the same number of points as the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro had before – 128. And now a detailed camera test of the iPhone 12 Pro Max has been published.
This model differs from its younger brother in a wide-angle camera sensor, optical zoom capabilities and optical stabilization. And all these improvements paid off: the iPhone 12 Pro Max earned a total of 130 points and displaced the iPhone 12 Pro from the fourth place. The bad news is that even the most expensive and modern iPhone is still unable to compete with Huawei and Xiaomi flagships. And this despite the fact that the Huawei P40 Pro, located on the third line of the rating, will soon hit six months (not from the moment of the announcement, but from the moment of the start of sales). And Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is not a novelty at all, unlike the new Mate 40 Pro, which takes the first place.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max earned 138 points for shooting photos, 68 points for its zoom capabilities, and 113 points for shooting a video. For comparison, the results of the iPhone 12 Pro in the same disciplines: 135, 66 and 112 points.
