Apple is suing a Canadian company that it hired to recycle old iPhones and iPads but which, according to the Cupertino company’s lawsuit, secretly sold 100,000 units instead.
According to a report from the Apple Insider site, the firm Geep Canada received from Apple just over half a million units of iPhones and iPads for dismantling, however, the technology firm has noted in an audit that 18% of these devices remain On circulation.
According to another report to the site The Verge , Apple assumes that there are many more devices that are being used without connection to mobile networks. The apple firm warns that these devices have not undergone a new safety certification so they could potentially have battery or electrical system defects that could harm users.
Apple’s lawsuit against Geep Canada seeks compensation of no less than $ 22.7 million.
