The local media in France has reported a bizarre incident of a young man destroying Apple products inside an Apple Store in Dijon, France. The YouTube video uploaded by a patron present inside the store at the time, starts with the man calmly putting the iPhones on display flat on the table, before hitting them hard with what appears to be a metal ball, potentially shattering their screens and damaging their components.
9to5Mac suggests that the steel ball is used for the French game of Boules. The video continues for a little over a minute as the disgruntled person smashes tens of iPhones, before finally destroying a MacBook Air. In between this, he speaks in French to onlookers and the person recording the video. As per the news outlet, the reasoning behind the man’s impropriety is because “he claims Apple refused to honour the EU requirement to provide warranty cover for two years after purchase”.
