Apple has sued its former partner for the electronics recycling effort, alleging that he sold nearly 100,000 iPhones, iPads, and an Apple Watche that he received for recycling.

Apple has always worked to increase the efficiency of the recycling process, and for this it relies on some partners until it is able to transfer the entire process to its own facilities.

According to aitnews report, Apple estimates that its former partner (Geep Canada), whom it contracted for for recycling, has stolen about 100,000 iPhones, iPads and an Apple Watche.

While Geep Canada did not deny the thefts, he filed a counter-lawsuit claiming that three employees had carried out the thefts without his knowledge.

And Apple says: These employees were top administrators in (Geep Canada).

The case has now been revealed publicly, but Apple filed the lawsuit in January 2020, and Geep Canada filed a counter-lawsuit in July.

The iPhone manufacturer appears to have discovered the alleged thefts at the end of 2017 or early 2018, after it stopped working with (Geep Canada).

Geep Canada merged in September 2019 with other companies to form Quantum Lifecycle Partners.

Apple’s lawsuit states that it sent 5,31966 iPhones to Geep Canada for recycling between January 2015 and December 2017, along with 25,673 iPads and 19,277 Apple Watch.

Apple then reviewed the Geep Canada repository and learned that some of its devices are stored away from other companies’ devices.

After discovering these devices, Apple checked the serial numbers of all the devices that it sent to Geep Canada.

Reportedly, Apple has discovered that approximately 18% of these devices, or 103,845, are still active over mobile networks.

And Apple claims that the number of stolen devices will be much higher, as devices that do not support (LTE) are not shown.

Apple is seeking to recover the full profits from the resale of these devices, in addition to 31 million Canadian dollars (22.7 million US dollars).

Geep Canada says it has suffered major business losses due to theft and Apple’s termination of contract.
