I hope the family get some big fat compensation from Apple over this. That's a nasty disability to inflict on someone.
A Texas couple sued Apple this week alleging that their 12-year-old son suffered "permanent hearing loss" when his AirPods emitted an alert so loud that it tore one of his eardrums.
The boy, now 14 and identified in the lawsuit as B.G., was using his AirPods Pro with his iPhone to watch Netflix in 2020 when an Amber Alert came through, said the suit, filed Monday by Carlos Gordoa and Ariani Reyes of San Antonio.
The boy's eardrum was torn when an Amber Alert was emitted much louder than the volume he had set his AirPods Pro on, the suit alleged.
