Bradley Ireland, on February 22, 2017, was seriously injured after a fire in his apartment. Transferred to hospital, he died from his injuries. Their children, Benjamin and Julia Ireland Meo, have therefore filed a complaint against the apple brand and brought the case to justice. The complainants believe that the iPad was ” unreasonably dangerous And that Apple is responsible for the death of their father.
