Apple adopts new way to record serial numbers of iPhones
Apple’s plan to transition to a new randomized serial number system seems to be in action starting with the iPhone 12 Purple edition that was recently launched in multiple countries. The changed serial numbers will now contain 8-14 randomly chosen alphanumeric characters (10 characters initially). It is believed that the change has been extended to iPhone 12 mini’s Purple option as well.
从最近在多个国家发布的iPhone 12紫色版开始，苹果公司推出的一种新的随机序列号系统正在实施。改变后的序列号现在将包含8-14个随机选择的字母数字字符(最初10个字符)。据传，iPhone 12 mini的紫色版也遵循这一变化。
