After turning the iPhone on, Mr. Cottle found what appeared to be another person’s data already on the device:
It came up with someone else’s name, flight details, bank details, medical records and even some voice messages from the person’s daughter. I don’t know how that could happen.
He had access to the above data, as well as the person’s iTunes account, credit, and could control their smart home devices. But so far he hasn’t been able to contact the owner.
Some people on Reddit say it might be a demo unit, due to some of the information shown in the photos.
