Apple 'pays millions of dollars in compensation' to 21-year-old student after repair techs copy explicit images from her iPhone and post them online

Apple has agreed to pay 'millions of dollars' in compensation to a 21-year-old student after iPhone repair techs posted personal explicit images and videos of her to social media.

The settlement, first reported by The Telegraph, notes that a 21-year-old student in Oregon took her phone to a repair center in California in 2016, operated by Apple contractor Pegatron.

A pair of techs working on repairing the device subsequently posted '10 photos of her in various stages of undress and a sex video' to Facebook, making it seem as if she posted them.

The images were later deleted only after the woman's friends told her about them.

The breach happened at a repair facility in a suburb of Sacramento, California

Apple was not named in the lawsuit, only referred to as a 'customer' to keep the matter private.
