Apple has gotten a pill of what it sometimes dose out sometimes, but this time it’s not about copying or infringing a patent.
It’s about the case of a woman named Adrienne Moore. She recently ported over to a Samsung Galaxy S5 from her older Apple iPhone 4, and thought that messages sent to her SIM card/line/phone number would be received on her new phone.
She was wrong. Messages sent by her iPhone-using buddies through Apple’s iMessage didn’t get delivered on her new phone causing her “irreparable harm”.
Apple iMessage has been recently referred to as a “black hole” for non-Apple phones in terms while many argue that Apple should work out a way where iMessages should be received as ordinary SMS’ on non-compatible devices.
