To what extent do these technical and natural over – adaptations improve or limit the functioning of the object ?

I’d like you to analyze the way your technical object (an iPhone) depends either on a technical network (technical hypertely ) for its functioning , and /or on a natural hypertely (adaptation to a use conditioned by a natural environment ). To what extent do these technical and natural over – adaptations improve or limit the functioning of the object ? If you wish to provide some , any reflections on Simondon’s general conception of progress are welcome too . How would you define progress ?
