Canadian company sued by Apple for reselling 100,000 devices

A Canadian company is now being sued by Apple for reselling over 100,000 devices, which were due to be recycled.

iPads, iPhones, and even the Apple watches had been sent to Canada for Geep to recycle between 2015 and 2017.

However, Geep had a canny recycling solution, is simple selling 18% of the 500,000 devices sent to them during the period.

In a 2018 audit this was noticed as the devices continued in connections to the internet of things.

Geep, however claim to have had no knowledge of the infraction and instead place the blame on three ex-employees.

Legal action has now been commenced by Geep since July of this year; however, this hasn’t stopped Apple.

The plant in Ontario and in fact the whole of the Geep company is now part of
Quantum Lifecycle Partners, which said: “The employees named have never been employed by Quantum.”

The actual lawsuit was filed in January of this year against the company, by Apple.

The Verge was told by Apple, “Products sent for recycling are no longer adequate to sell to consumers,”

“And if they are rebuilt with counterfeit parts, they could cause serious safety issues, including electrical or battery defects.”
