(Reuters) - Apple has dropped a two-device limit on online purchases of
iPhones, a check of its web stores showed on Monday, just days after
changing the checkout procedure amid a coronavirus pandemic.

Drop-down menus in online stores for territories ranging from
the United States to Hong Kong and mainland China now allow
customers to buy more than 10 devices. Curbs stay for some iPad
and Macbook models, however.
Apple declined to comment.
This month Apple said it would shut all its brick-and-mortar
retail stores outside mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and
Macao, in effect switching purchases to its website.
