A Missouri man is suing Apple, claiming
that the company kept his iPhone
after he went to get it repaired...
and used “special features” available
on his phone to create features
for future iOS updates.
According to Apple Insider, Raevon Terrell Parker told the U.S. District Court for
the Eastern District of Missouri...
that he took his iPhone 7 to the
Saint Louis Galleria in October 2018.
Parker then claims that
a staff member took his
phone to fix it and then kept it.
providing Parker with
a replacement phone.
Parker claims that the employee
took the phone after realizing
it had brand new features.
None of Parker’s court filings specifies
what he means by saying his iPhone
“was the first to have new features”...
and why he would be entitled to
credit and compensation for the
“discovery of the Group FaceTime feature”.
The lawsuit includes Parker suing Apple
for “distress, humiliation, embarrassment,
[and] defamation of character”.
According to Parker, he was labeled “crazy” at the Apple Store.
As of now, the lawsuit has been dismissed by the judge for not actually stating a claim
