Apple FaceTime car crash lawsuit dismissed

A lawsuit blaming Apple for a child's death in a car crash, has been dismissed by a US appeals court in California. Her family held Apple responsible for not enabling "Lockout" technology on the phone. The Modisette family alleged Apple was responsible for the accident as it had considered utilising technology to detect motion on its phones and disable certain functions when driving.

The appeals court agreed with the earlier decision, concluding Apple "Did not owe the Modisettes a duty of care".
