Yesterday a pensioner in the UK took Apple to court for wiping his iPhone photos and contacts from his iPhone.
Deric White from the UK took Apple to court after he took his iPhone to one of Apple Stores to be repaired, there was just one problem, he had not backed up his device.
The Apple Store were able to fix his iPhone, but when he was given it back, he found out that all of his contacts and all of his photos were deleted, including all of his honeymoon photos, so he decided to take Apple to court.
The story seemed a bit ludicrous yesterday that someone was taking Apple to court for deleting content from a device that was not backed up, but it turns out that the court actually agreed with Mr White.
A Judge in the UK ruled in favor of Mr White and have ordered Apple to pay him £12,000 in damages, he had originally taken Apple to court for £5,000 in damages, you can see what he had to say about his victory below.
“Big firms like Apple think they are invincible, but it’s about time someone brought them to book for the way they treat people.
“Even though the stakes were tiny for them, they refused to settle this matter and insisted on seeing me in court.
“Hopefully today’s judgement has wiped the smirk off their faces.”
Apple now has to pay Mr White £1,200 in damaged and also his court costs which were £773, the company has 14 days to pay Mr White.
