Cheating Husband Sues Apple After Wife Finds ‘Deleted’ Messages

A businessman plans to sue Apple after his wife discovered “deleted” messages he sent to s*x workers on another iPhone.

The unfaithful spouse, a middle-aged guy from England, believes that Apple’s lack of transparency over erased communications prompted his wife to file for divorce.

He told The Times that he had turned to prostitutes in the final years of his marriage and would contact them via the iMessage programme on his iPhone before deleting the texts.

However, his wife discovered the communications on the family’s iMac computer, as well as ones from several years ago that he thought he had deleted.

“If you are told a message is deleted, you are entitled to believe it’s deleted,” He told the Times newspaper.

“It’s all quite painful and quite raw still. It was a very brutal way of finding out [for my wife].

“My thoughts are if I had been able to talk to her rationally and she had not had such a brutal realisation of it, I might still be married.”

He added: “Divorce is an extraordinarily stressful process and you have children and family dynamics.

“In my opinion it’s all because Apple told me my messages were deleted when they weren’t.

“If the message had said, ‘These messages are deleted on this device’, that would have been a clue, or ‘These messages are deleted on this device only’ that would have been even better.”

He is now suing the firm for the more than £5 million he lost in his divorce and legal fees, saying that the corporation does not inform customers that erased texts can emerge on other Apple devices.

Simon Walton, from London law firm Rosenblatt which is representing the businessman, told the Telegraph that “Apple had not been clear with users as to what happens to messages they send and receive and, importantly, delete”.

He said: “In many cases, the iPhone informs the user that messages have been deleted but, as we have seen, that isn’t true and is misleading because they are still found on other linked devices — something Apple doesn’t tell its users.”

“I would be eager to hear from other Apple customers who have experienced similar issues,” he added.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.

“A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.”
