London - A man from London will head to court to meet Apple. He plans on arguing that the company wiped away his life after his device was reset.
Deric White, 68, said he took his faulty iPhone into an Apple Store, and his phone was rest, but the contents were erased. White is now demanding over $7,500 in compensation from Apple, due to losing his photos and contacts that were stored on the iPhone.
White said his entire life was saved on his iPhone. He told the Sun about the photos and video saved from his honeymoon, as well as a video of a giant tortoise that was biting his hand on his honeymoon. He also said his iPhone contained 15 years worth of collected contacts.
He decided to bring his iPhone 5 to the Apple Store on Regent Street in London after he kept receiving messages saying there was a fault on his phone. After staff examined his phone, they told him it was fixed, but all of the data was wiped.
White said he was asked if the phone was backed up after the data was erased. He said his wife was crying after she realized what had gone.
As of now, White says Apple isn't taking responsibility,but one of the court papers said the claimant has not demonstrated how he suffered any loss. If White is victorious in court, he plans on taking a second honeymoon if he receives compensation.
