It is quite common for cheaters to want to come up with excuses once they are caught.

Whether someone is cheating on a partner or a test, they rarely want to take the fall and might also try to blame others.

Much like a man who recently got into quite some trouble.

According to various sources, the man in question thought his cheating ways would be concealed, but that was not the case.

Now he wants to take on Apple for their "lack of transparency".

The anonymous man spoke to The Times and said that he had used the iMessage app on his iPhone to contact sex workers and had racy interactions with them.

He also says that he deleted the messages to cover his tracks, but he was not that lucky.

His wife had used the family iMac and she saw all the messages going back several years.

She quickly filed for divorce.

The husband said that they had been happily married for more than 20 years and had a 'superb marriage'.

He has now decided to take legal action against Apple for not making it clear that deleted messages on one device do not mean it is deleted from all devices.

He is suing them for close to £5-million (estimated R108-million) for legal costs and other financial losses due to his divorce.

His health has also been affected as he is now on stronger medication to help reduce his panic attacks.

It is mentioned that he attributes these to the stress of having to go through the divorce process.

The law firm representing him seems to be very positive about his case, but Apple has yet to comment on the situation.
