Apple FaceTime Car Crash Lawsuit Dismissed


A lawsuit blaming Apple for a child’s death in a car crash, has been dismissed by a US appeals court in California.

Garrett Wilhelm told police he was using FaceTime on the iPhone 6 when he crashed into the back of a family car.

Five-year-old Moriah Modisette died from the injuries she sustained in the 2014 Christmas Eve accident in Texas.

Her family held Apple responsible for not enabling “lockout” technology on the phone.

The car was so badly damaged that Moriah and her father James had to be extracted from it, both in a critical condition.

Moriah later died of her injuries in a local children’s hospital.

Police found Mr Wilhelm’s intact phone still running the FaceTime application after the accident.
