Check out this video of an angry customer smashing over $50,000 of iPhones and other products in an Apple Store in Dijon, France.

The customer was reportedly upset that Apple refused to honor his warranty for two years as required by EU law. He can be seen calming smashing iPhones with a steel ball in the video below.

After leaving the Apple Store, the customer was detained by mall security and he was eventually taken into police custody.

I'd make him pay for EVERY device that was broken, damaged or otherwise unusable to the Public. I bought my iPhone6 and then switched to the 6+ all with in the 2 years and would expect it to be about $220 trade-in since the Phone is 2 years old.

Just like they offer to buy 6s plus for $220 on these online deals. This is absolute joke they sell for over 500 on websites , . Only idiots would sell a phone worthy of 500 for 220.

Maybe that's why it's called a deal. Maybe it's a phone trade-in. Maybe the phones released a year ago are getting cheaper because new models.

Those are retail prices anyways who knows the real true cost

So many angry people on this board and in the Apple Store. If he smashed 15 phones and one MacBook Air, the actual loss to Apple was about 15 x $500 + (1 x $1000) — or about $8500, which is a long way from $50,000. Exaggerative headlines are not journalism.

Actually he smashed more than just those iphones and the macbook air. Look at the background and you'll see 4 smashed imacs as well so apparently the guy started smashing things way before the video was recorded.

that's pocket change for them. They have around 200 Billion in cash reserves, seriously no sympathy for Apple!! Customers lives matter!!!

There is sympathy for the company that continues to shape our lives and is one of the most life saving ones I consider. Company lives matter to. They care about me all the time because I show how much ai care about them!

After paying for his crime, this guy will later purchase a Samsung...and it will explode in his pants.

As a result, that will cause him no harm.
JB - October 2, 2016 at 2:09pm
I agree should in Jail.
JB - October 2, 2016 at 1:14pm
They have to prove the JB was the cause the of problem. Just like when you modify your vehicle. If they can not prove that your modifications caused the problems they have to fix it. The documents can claim what ever they want, . They have to legally fix a vehicle , if they can not prove your modifications caused the problems . They would and should loose a court case if they can prove it.

Not to throw his ass in jail, they don't have to prove anything.
