A 68-year-old man successfully sued Apple for deleting precious photos from his phone
The plaintiff, Deric White, sought £5,000 ($7,500) in damages after he took his iPhone 5 into the Regent Street Apple Store in London for repair. Instead of fixing the phone, a store employee deleted everything.White was awarded £1,200 ($1,800) and around £800 ($1,200) in costs.
Apple argued in court that White has "not demonstrated how he suffered any loss" when his data, which includes 15 years worth of contacts, was deleted. The Court found differently, however.White will put the £1,200 towards a holiday in Cornwall, on the South Coast of England. "It's not so much the money that I have won, but it's the moral victory," he said. "It's absolutely fabulous, it's a monumental victory."
