She Sent Her iPhone to Apple. Repair Techs Uploaded Her Nudes to Facebook

Apple paid a multimillion dollar settlement to an Oregon woman after repair techs the company had contracted published nude photos of her from her phone on her Facebook. As first reported by The Telegraph, the unidentified woman sent her iPhone to Apple for repairs in 2016. The case highlights the personal nature of our devices and the need for Apple to relinquish its repair monopoly and let us repair our own stuff. In this case, the people who uploaded the photos and video worked for a company called Pegatron, which is a company Apple works with to do repairs. The only reason we know about this case is because of a dispute between Apple, Pegatron, and the AGLIC American Insurance Company.
