    • First of all! I looked it up and these pictures are not even the ones of the thief nor the "victim". Whoever made this meme is misleading you already. Second, their was no facial recognition at any point. The dumbass lost his learners permit and it was stolen and left at the scene of the crime.

    • Honestly if he sued for something smaller yet still big like 1 mil he’d probably win easily, but for that much money he might lose or get it watered down a ridiculous amount,unless he’s TRYING to get attention to it and then purposely water it down as he’d scare Apple for publication, but I doubt it

    • It’s fake. Apple encrypts that information. Remember the San Bernadino shooting? The shooter had information on his iPhone that the government wanted, and Apple refused to hack into his phone to get the information. They’re serious about privacy and no one would ever go to jail from Apple devices.
