iPhone X thieves steal £280,000 worth of Apple devices from delivery van

Over 300 iPhone X handsets have been stolen from a UPS delivery van, with thieves getting away with approximately $370,000 (£280,000) of Apple products. 

The courier truck was making a delivery to an Apple store at the Stonestown Mall in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, two days before the 10th anniversary iPhone’s official release.

The three suspects, who police believe knew exactly what they were looking for, jumped out of a white Dodge van and took off with the much sought-after merchandise.

The cheapest iPhone X is $999, so the 313-device heist is valued at well over $300k, and the thieves are still at large at time of publication. To put that into perspective, the average price of a flat in Slough is around £230,000.

The devices all have IMEI serial numbers which should make them easy to track, providing buyers report suspicious sales.

Regardless, this won’t put too much of a dent in Apple’s finances if those reports of 12 million iPhone X pre-orders are accurate – there’s certainly a healthy appetite for the handset if the release day queues are anything to go by.
