Apple allegedly paid millions of dollars to a woman to settle a lawsuit after iPhone repair technicians uploaded explicit content from her iPhone to Facebook.
According to a complaint filed in California, the woman – a college student whose name was not publicly released – "suffered a publication of private information without her consent, resulting in a claim for personal injury" against Apple repair contractor Pegatron Technology Service, Inc.

Records of the woman's complaint were not available. However, Apple's name came to light in a related case when Pergatron filed a lawsuit against its insurance company seeking reimbursement for money it had paid to Apple.
The claim stems from an incident in 2016 when a college student "discovered that sexually explicit photos and a video she had stored on her mobile phone had been uploaded to her Facebook page," according to separate court documents.
